Murder at the Abbey! Murder Mystery Dinner

Murder at the Abbey! Murder Mystery Dinner

Welcome to the world of Downton Abbey! A world full of aristocracy and old money, but never anything as droll as murder! You’ve been invited to the dinner party held by the Earl of Grantham himself! Some would kill for the opportunity to meet the Crawley family. They’ll all be there! The Earl, his beautiful wife, and three daughters, not to mention all the other characters in (and around) the Grantham house. That’s right! All the family, staff, and townsfolk will be there. You’ll meet lots of fun characters…and you’ll play as big (or as small) of a part as you wish. It is up to you. Hope nothing bad happens…but if it does…we might need you to help us figure it out. Or perhaps you’re the villain? Join us for a buffet dinner and an entertaining evening at Cedar Ridge Winery and Distillery. Arrive as early as 5:30 p.m. to choose seating and sample wines if you would like. The show starts at 6:00 p.m. with dinner following at 6:30 p.m. Cost per person is $50 for members and $65 for non-members. Register with a Friends Club representative at 319-679-2103 or Jaime_Roberts@HillsBank.com.

Shear Madness

Shear Madness

After 38 years, this is the longest running comedy in history—and for good reason! America’s favorite “whodunit” comedy delights audiences with a unique blend of madcap improvisation and spine-tickling mystery. Shear Madness takes place in a hair salon and is chock full of up-to-the-minute spontaneous humor. During the course of the action, a murder is committed and the audience gets to spot the clues, question the suspects, and solve the funniest mystery. The outcome of this musical is never the same, which is why many audience members return again and again to the scene of the mayhem. Cost is $84 per person and includes motorcoach transportation, the matinee show, lunch and dessert, and all taxes and gratuities. Register with a Friends Club representative at 319-679-2103 or FriendsClub@HillsBank.com.
