"The Art of Murder" Who Dunit fundraiser dinner! During the meal a murder is committed. It's up to YOU to figure out WHO DUNIT!

The Bennett-Curtis House players invite you to take part in our "The Art of Murder" Who Dunit dinner show! This special evening will be a fundraiser event for The Boys and Girls Clubs of Greater Northwest Indiana. Come enjoy an evening of themed drinks, delicious food, art auction, and murder!

Your evening begins with appetizers, open bar, viewing of the art up for auction at tonight's events, and mingling with guests and cast. You will then be seated for dinner where our cast are seated amongst you and dinner is served throughout the play. The play takes place throughout the entire evening, you may be seated with the actors so listen carefully, ask questions and try to figure out Who Dunit?!

Guests will have the chance to bid on art by Boys and Girls from the Club (all proceeds from the auction will go directly to the club and you will get to take the piece won home with you at the end of the event)! During the meal a murder is committed and it's up to YOU to figure out WHO DUNIT!
