Murder at the Museum

April 6th, 2024 by WCBC Radio

Allegany Museum and Embassy Theatre announce an upcoming murder mystery event on the evenings of Thursday, April 11, Friday, April 12 and Saturday, April 13. Written and directed by Tom Valentine, this interactive experience in the museum ballroom features an eight-member cast mingling throughout the crowd before the performance and dropping clues. Refreshments will be available at a cash bar, and charcuterie boards will be set at each table. Attendees will be invited to guess the murderer by ballot at the end of the performance.

Prizes for the winners include a Whiskey Rebellion ticket or a Triple Play theatrical event pass from the Embassy Theatre. Seating will be limited to 100 people per night. Tickets will be $40 per person and a ticket link for this joint benefit is available on the websites and Facebook pages of both Allegany Museum and Embassy Theatre. A troupe of actors is on their way to NYC for the opening of a new show, "Titanic: Ship of Fools." They stop in Cumberland to rehearse at the Embassy Theatre but end up at the Allegany Museum instead.
