Kill Me Tender: a murder mystery dinner theatre event at the NuWray Inn

It’s that time of year… Murder Mysteries are in the air. The next mainstage show is Agatha Christie’s The Mousetrap and we’ve also got this pre-meditated event…

All hail the king in this interactive, comedic murder mystery. Your voice matters and YOU solve the case! Since YOU find the killer, there is a different ending each night.

The premise of the evening is… The Burnsville Historical Society’s annual meeting in which members hold a seance to try to communicate with Elvis Presley. Not everyone in the society is happy with the idea of a having a seance, and some people just don’t respect The King. Once the gathering is underway, it’s clear there are more than just spirits at work when a society member is murdered! It’s up to you and the other guests to unravel the mystery before anyone else leaves the building.

Reserve your place now… for justice!

We recommend calling early… In previous years, shows have sold out days from the announcement.  Please note, reservations are handled through The NuWray Inn — (828) 682-2329
