Murder Mystery Night - October 9

Posted on September 28, 2015 at 3:12 PM

The Wells County Public Library and the Wells Community Theater are teaming up to offer a Murder Mystery Night at the Main Library on Friday, October 9 from 6-8 p.m.

Step into a fictional event held at the Deadwood Saloon in the Wild West: enjoy casino/card games and then help solve a murder mystery right out of the pages of a crime novel. You’ll get to interact with “characters” from the Wells Community Theater throughout this fun-filled evening. Get as involved as you want while solving the crime, or just sit back and watch the show. Arrive anytime from 6:00-6:30 p.m to mingle, get food, and start playing games. Show and entertainment will begin at 6:30 p.m.

Mocktails and appetizers will be served. Wild west-themed attire is encouraged, but it is not required. Prizes will be awarded in various categories, including the most creatively dressed and for those that correctly guess the culprit of the crime.

Event is free and open to the public. Registration is required to attend and the event is for adults only. For more questions or to sign up, stop by the library, call 260-824-1612, or on our calendar page. This event is held in conjunction with the One Book One County program and is sponsored by the Friends of the Library, the Wells Community Theater, and the Wells County Public Library.
