Murder at the Masquerade

 

The Setting: Elegantly dressed and unrecognizably masked, you are in attendance at a  fundraiser with some of the most well-known art collectors in the world.
The Art Aficionado Masquerade Ball, held  at one of the most elegant homes on the South Shore, is filled with abstract art, expensive sculptures, and people who would kill to have them.
Suddenly, an art forgery is revealed.
A priceless painting disappears.
When someone drops dead, you find yourself in the midst of a murder investigation. 

 

The honor of your presence is requested  at a fundraising event in support of the South Shore Art Center
Saturday, November 1, 2014
7:00 pm until 11:00 pm

 

Enjoy an interactive murder mystery dinner party at the private residence of:

Lions Gate
300 South Main Street
Cohasset, MA  02025

 

SOLD OUT

Each ticket buys a different level of involvement in the murder mystery.

 

Witness
Do you love solving mysteries? You are at the Art Aficianado Masquerade when the murder victim died.  Did you speak with him earlier in the evening?  What did he tell you? The detective may pull you out of the crowd to ask you questions, or ignore a potentially valuable piece of information you have.  Regardless, you will be asked to be involved in the investigation and work with your team to unmask the murderer.  Rewards will be given to the team who solves the mystery.

 

Suspect
Do you enjoy the spotlight? With this ticket, you will be identified as a suspect in the murder and asked to step away from your current alias.  Assuming the colorful personality of someone who may actually have committed the murder, you will be given an integral piece of information to share with those able to wheedle it out of you or bribe you.  With more involvement in the murder mystery, your ability to stay in character and enjoy celebrity status will add to the intrigue of the evening!  Rewards for best actor and actress will be given out at the end.

 

Investigator
Are you the one who likes asking the questions?  With this ticket, you will be able to unlock key information from suspects for the benefit of all at the party.  It will take a clever mind and a quick thinker to interrogate the potential murderer without giving away what you already know.

with Guest Speaker: Drew Dernavich

Drew Dernavich


Drew was born in Massachusetts, and completed his formal education with a Fine Arts degree from The College of William and Mary in Virginia. He later moved to Boston and began careers drawing cartoons, carving gravestones, and capturing business meetings graphically. He still does two out of three of those things, which isn't bad. 

Drew had his first cartoon published in the New Yorker magazine in 2002. He’s also done cartoon work for Google, TIME, The Wall Street Journal, Harvard Business Review, and The Boston Globe, as well as writing for Print,  andr. In 2006 Drew was given the National Cartoonists Society’s “Reuben Award” as the country's best gag cartoonist. He is featured in Volumes 1 and 2 of the cartoon anthology The Rejection Collection (Simon Spotlight Entertainment). In 2007, Drew relocated to Hoboken, NJ, just because the name sounds funny. He is currently working on his first children's book, tentatively expected in September of 2015 by Henry Holt/Christy Ottaviano Books.
