Casualty at the Carnival Murder Mystery

Saturday, October 20; 4-10 p.m.
Adults: $5; Children 12 and Under: $2; Non D&E Students and D&E Alumni: $3; D&E Student and Employees: FREE
The carnival is coming to the town of Autumn Valley for the very first time! And Mayor McDougal is all revved up for their arrival to his extravagant home. He even offered all of the zany carnival acts to stay there for the run of the show, but having a greedy ringmaster, a falling out of favor producer, a gossipy contortionist, a overly competitive daredevil, a snooty trapeze artist, a questionable clown, an egotistical lion tamer, a try hard magician with his overzealous assistant, and the troublemaking mayor’s daughter all under one roof may not be such a good idea. At the opening party that night after their arrival to the mayor’s mansion disaster strikes and one of the guests is found dead. Can you help solve the murder and bring peace back to Autumn Valley or will this be the carnival’s first and last appearance?
The event is similar to a live action version of Clue as teams try solve the murder first. There are also multiple scenarios, so the murder is not the same every time. Casualty at the Carnival begins at 4 p.m. and will continue every 30 minutes until 10 p.m. Teams can have up to five participants. Each team has 30 minutes to solve the mystery by interviewing the suspect actors and picking up evidence hidden around Haliehurst. Once the team has an answer, tell it confidentially to the ringmaster, who will tell you if you are correct. First team to finish is the winner! No reservations needed.

Boiler House Theatre
General Admission: $10; D&E Faculty and Staff: $5; D&E Students: FREE
Shakespeare’s classic comedy of magic and mistaken love is hilariously brought to life in D&E Theatre Department's totally radical reimagining of one of the most well-loved works in the Bard’s oeuvre, A Midsummer Night's Dream. A pair of complicated lovers, a gaggle of bickering fairies and a show that must go on are all thrown into chaos when that mischief-maker extraordinaire Puck introduces a love-inducing flower to try and make the night all better. The best intentions have the worst consequences as misdirected love abounds, and everything must be set right before the sunrise comes. Directed by Bridget Rue Esterhuizen. Presented by the Davis & Elkins College Division of Creative Arts.
