Merlot, Meritage & Murder
On Friday, September 27th & Saturday, September 28th back by popular demand we will be hosting two nights worth of Murder Mysteries with a different murderer each night. This years Murder Mystery is called Merlot, Meritage and Murder.
Let us set the evening for you:
Welcome to the Okanagan! Sit, relax and enjoy the picture-perfect views and have a sip ofscandal. Thats right, trouble is brewing in wine country. Big Red, the notorious owner of Red Red Winery sure knows how to live up to her name.after all she has a reputation for being bold, complicated and seductive. But just when we thought Big Red couldnt cause any more trouble, she was found murdered on the eve of the annual wine festival!
Everyone is a suspect in this intoxicating crime.
Enter: The Audience. As you arrive at the event during the cocktail hour you will notice that there are people (you may or may not know) in attendance in character who are perhaps behaving strangely and interacting with each other and you. Theyre introducing themselves and informing everyone of why theyre in attendance. Who knows what might happen next?
The story begins and everyone is requested to take their seats. Comfortable in their seats, the audience experiences a scripted interactive show filled with off-the-cuff and personalized moments that only come from improvisation.
What is improvisation you ask yourself? Improvisation is when actors know the gist of the story and build their own lines around the information that needs to be divulged to the audience. Since all the actors are Peachlander volunteers and come from all walks of life, They possess little to no professional acting abilities, which often results in total chaos and huge laughs.
The plot thickens as dinner is savored and cleared. Its now time for the next couple of Acts and the mystery develops and clues are uncovered. Suspects are questioned and dessert is served. Audience members at their tables complete their vote cards of who they think done it.
After votes are collected and correct answers are set aside the big solution is announced and from there the case is closed. The Murderer confesses and the actors take a bow with a prize for the table with the best right answer and a prize for the table with the worst wrong answer.
