Midnight at Malone’s Murder Mystery
The recently formed Fulshear Arts Council is hosting a murder mystery special dinner theater themed “Midnight at Malone’s” at 7 p.m. February 11 held at the The Lodge at Fulshear Creek Crossing, 5005 Sugarberry Crescent in Fulshear. Funds raised at the $75 per person event will benefit the Fulshear Arts Council’s summer art, drama and dance workshops for children. Tickets for the murder mystery dinner can be purchased at www.fulshearartscouncil.org.
“We hope fine arts supporters will treat their Valentines to our Roaring ‘20s inspired murder mystery dinner theatre catered by Dekker’s Mesquite Grill complete with champagne or wine from the vineyard at Fulshear Creek Crossing, a Valentine-themed dessert, a rose for your sweetheart and a and a cash bar,” said council founder and Fulshear Creek Crossing resident Marcia Simmons. “We hope to see guests get into the theme by wearing flapper dresses, zoot suits and other 1920s inspired clothes.”
Prizes will be awarded to the best-dressed couple and guests at the table that solves the mystery.
The Lodge at Fulshear Creek Crossing will be transformed into Bugsy Malone’s newest speakeasy for the event. Local area actors from Get-A-Clue Mysteries, based in Houston, will set the scene the moment guests walk into the Lodge at Fulshear Creek Crossing. That’s why guests better know the password to get in and expect to get frisked at the door for weapons by Jack, Bugsy’s best friend and bouncer. Attendees will mix and mingle with Malone’s regulars. They’ll also meet the man himself, Bugsy Malone, who will have his current girlfriend, the Russian Silent Film star, Natasha Ogilovsky, on his arm. As the party progresses toward dinner, it becomes apparent that Malone’s is not as carefree as he appears. The tension rises, erupting in screams and a murder that must be solved by those present lest all and sundry be charged as accessories. With careful detection the murderer will be revealed, the speakeasy saved, and all will be well. Or will it?
Adds Simmons, “Due to its uniqueness and romantic setting at the Lodge at Fulshear Creek Crossing, The “Midnight at Malone’s Mystery Dinner” is expected to be a sell out in February.
History was made in July of 2011 when the newly formed Fulshear Arts Council (FAC) held its first board meeting to formalize the launch of “a 501(c) (3) non-profit corporation with the purpose of developing, expanding, and promoting community interest and appreciation of the visual and performing arts.” The Council’s first priority is offering opportunities in the arts and arts education to children. “We have several teachers on the committee who are passionate about this,” says Simmons. “Our long-term goal is to build a visual and performing arts facility in the Fulshear Town Center, and we hope our visual and performing arts center will have dormitories for student campers.”
