Join us at the F.M. Kirby Carriage House for Slaying
at the Speakeasy presented by Without A Cue
Productions. It’s the Roaring Twenties, and this gin joint
is jumpin'! Mingle with gangsters, gun molls, and gumshoes,
but be careful—there are some seedy types in this
speakeasy, and they are definitely up to no good. Check
your pistols at the door and keep your eyes peeled in this
interactive murder mystery dinner.
Seating begins at
6:30 PM. Performance begins at
7:00 PM and runs 2.5 hours.
Performance tickets are $40. The $55 three
course prix-fixe dinner will be charged the night of
the event. Beverages, tax, and gratuity additional.

d'oeuvres while you mix, mingle, and meet the artists!
