I need to start working on my mystery-solving skills to prepare for the Stow-Munroe Falls Community Foundation's annual Murder Mystery Dinner Theatre.I attended the Foundation's first Murder Mystery in 2005, and really enjoyed it. But, I realized that solving mysteries is not one of my hidden talents. I was at the winning table, but I have to admit that I had nothing to do with our victory.Before attending the event, I was not sure what to expect. But, organizers were helpful, and explained the process before the event began. Individuals at each table in the audience worked together to solve a murder mystery. Clues were given by actors and actresses, and there was a set amount of time for the audience to solve the case.I missed the event in 2006, so I am excited about attending this year. The Murder Mystery Dinner Theater is scheduled for Feb. 24 at 6 p.m. in the Acker-Moore Memorial Post, located at 3733 Fishcreek Road in Stow.According to event chairperson Tom Stephan, only 150 tickets are available for the dinner."We're already approaching 100 [tickets sold]," he said. "The first year, we wanted to see how it would fly, and it flew pretty well. Then last year, we sold approximately 150, and we realized that's a good number of people for this type of event."The cast of Mysteries by Moushey Inc. will act out a class reunion, which may end in a murder, according to Stephan."I have been involved in Mysteries by Moushey since 1985," he said. "People enjoy the shows because they're totally different from any other event. This allows the audience to be involved in the show. Each table will work together to figure out the mystery."Foundation member Ron Alexander said he enjoys the event, although like me, he does not have much luck solving the case."I love it because it gives us the opportunity to sit down and see a very entertaining show," he said. "It's the only show that lets the audience get involved with the actors and actresses while trying to solve a mystery. Of course, I have never been able to solve the mystery, but I still enjoy the show."Proceeds from the event will be used for scholarships for Stow-Munroe Falls High School students. While the event raised $600 in 2005, more than $2,000 was raised last year, said Stephan."Our goal is to raise more than $2,000 again this year," he said, adding there will be an auction for donated items, including basketballs signed by Cleveland Cavaliers players and memberships to the Akron General Health & Wellness Center -- North.The cost to attend the event is $50 per person, and $25 is tax deductible. Individuals can be table sponsors for $500, and receive eight tickets. Individual sponsorships cost $100. For tickets and more information, call the Stow-Munroe Falls Chamber of Commerce office at 330-688-1579.The event is a fun way to meet new people and watch an interesting show. And anyone who is good at solving mysteries is welcome to sit at my table.E-mail: acole@recordpub.comPhone: 330-686-3947
