It's 1959 in small town USA. The local high school class of '54 has scheduled its fifth reunion to coincide with the return to town of Rockford 'Rock' N. Roley, a famous rock star, who's a '54 graduate. He's agreed to start the reunion festivities with a rock concert and has invited friends to meet him after the concert at the local malt shop to share old times. They recall an old prank that leads to the discovery of murder. The evening will provide hours of fabulous 50's food, suspense and intrigue. Guests will need to bring a sense of humor and willingness to take a lighthearted attitude toward blackmail, sex, larceny, deceit and murder. Adults, of course. We have places for 8 characters and two observers. Bid on this item and join the Murder Mystery Molls for a masterful meal and many merry moments of murderous fun!
