Thanks again so much for accommodating our groups at the Murder Mysteries and for putting on such a fabulous show! The two groups that attended last week were thrilled. In fact one of the groups is asking to return in August:) And another one said: "It was great! They had so much fun and the actors really stumped us on who the killer was!"
