A Rotary-sponsored social evening sounds like a good way to break up the winter doldrums.
On Saturday, February 17, the ACME Mystery Co. will present “Death Takes a Cruise,” an evening of theater, food and fun. Tickets are just $40 per person (reservations required) for the interactive play and a dinner of spinach salad, pork tenderloin with balsamic glaze, mashed sweet potato, and dessert (Cakes by Sue Austin).
The event will begin at 6 p.m. at the Hibernian Hall, 1746 State Street, Schenectady. The reservation deadline is Saturday, February 10. Contact Suzanne Mackey by calling 518-368-8520, or emailing her Suzanne.Mackey@gmail.com.
Not familiar with the Syracuse-based ACME Mystery Co.? Here’s what they have to say about themselves:
“ACME provides interactive comedies in a mystery format in conjunction with a dinner. Our shows play on two levels: They are extremely funny and fun to watch, but there also is a very real mystery which each audience member gets the chance to solve.
“At every seat is a program telling you where you are, when you are, and who you are. It also tells you about the characters you will be meeting. Additionally, each table is given a clue and encouraged to exchange this information with other tables in an effort to put together the most comprehensive list so as to better solve the mystery.
“We write all of our own material to ensure quality and have been entertaining audiences throughout the Northeast since 1997. We’ve given over 1,000 performances in venues big and small from mansions to restaurants, hotels to local halls. We entertain at regular venues, semi-regular venues, annual events, and special occasions.”
