New England Classical Academy annual Murder Mystery Dinner

CLAREMONT, N.H. – New England Classical Academy’s seventh annual Murder Mystery Dinner, “Murder in the House of Horrors,” will be held Friday, Nov. 1 and Saturday, Nov. 2, 2019 at 6 p.m. at the Claremont Senior Center, 5 Acer Heights Rd., Claremont, N.H. Doors will open at 5:30 p.m. both nights.

Welcome to the Hamilton Museum and tonight’s lecture on “Monsters, Murderers and Madmen.” You have no doubt enjoyed the Chamber of Horrors display in the lobby and are listening attentively to Professor Dirk Carlton (Christian Swingle), a renowned Egyptologist, tell of his discovery of the Pharaoh Menkaura’s tomb. However, the lecture turns deadly and a priceless jewel has vanished!

You are now a suspect as well as a witness to this mystery. But don’t worry; when Lt. Dan Morrow (Ben Carlson) arrives, he will help narrow down the suspect list and give you an opportunity to question them too. Was it the jealous wife Frances Carlton (Sofia Bianconi) or the exotic Egyptian ambassadors (Jakobi Edwards and Janessa Walck) who cursed the expedition? Could the museum director Dr. Vanderveer (Corinne Lindberg) or the museum patron Lurenda Westbrook (Madison Barney) have a motive for murder? Could the professor’s assistant Elena Newman (Emily King) have had a hand in this crime?  What about the justice seeking lawyer Elvira Gray (Maya Lindberg)? Perhaps Jane Trice (Nora Lemieux) is more than just a slide projection assistant.  It could even be one of the guards (Brodie Walck, Camden Fagan, Isaac Swingle, Carter Buckley) or the assistant dectective (Sienna Swingle). You’ll just have to attend the museum’s opening lecture to find out.

Tickets include salad, bread, and water; choice of beef short ribs, pan-seared Atlantic Mahi Mahi, or butternut squash ravioli dinner entrees with sides; dessert and coffee. Soft drinks and alcoholic beverages will be for sale separately. To reserve tickets, email or call the school office at 603-543-3400 or
