Old Glory Ranch Mystery Dinner “Who Shot the Sheriff?”
September 12, 2020 @ 6:30 pm - 10:00 pm$80
About this Event
It is 1845 in Dodge City, Texas. Dodge City is a quiet sort of town, populated by normal folks and normal businesses. The town’s central location in Texas makes it a popular stopping point for travelers going to or from the West, and along with all the familiar faces you are apt to see one or two new people amongst a crowd on a typical day.On this sleepy Saturday afternoon, the peace was broken by the sound of a single gunshot coming from Sheriff Matt McCall’s office. Moments later, his body was found, still seated with his booted feet propped up on his desk, shot dead with a single bullet to the head. The Sheriff, who also was elected mayor earlier this year, had a reputation for ruling over Dodge City with an iron fist, so anyone with the slightest bit of suspicion amongst them would find themselves under his watchful eye. Somebody, whether it be one of the townsfolk or a visitor, murdered Sheriff McCall…and it could even be you!
At Old Glory Ranch Mystery Dinners, our guests play the roles of suspects and witnesses. There are 20 characters in all (10 suspects & 10 witnesses) and are available on a first-come, first served basis until all roles are filled. Guests will receive a confirmation email after purchasing a ticket which includes a link to register as a character. It is so much fun to see everyone arrive as most everyone dresses in theme whether they are playing a character or not. If you do not wish to be a character nor dress in theme, the suggested dress is business casual.
Upon arrival, guests will be assigned a table according to their household and/or party. Everyone will have time to enjoy appetizers and the venue until dinner is served. Our Mystery Dinner emcee will then take over to introduce the characters and guide the telling of the story. Dessert is served at intermission. All guests (including the suspects and witnesses) sit with their friends and family and actively try to solve the crime throughout the evening. Although the guests playing the characters have a little extra information at the beginning, they do not know if they are the guilty party until the big reveal at the end of the evening.Tickets are $80 and include appetizers, dinner and dessert as well as the entertainment and complimentary beverages. Gluten-free and vegetarian options are available upon request prior to the event.
