Murder mystery returns to the Renaissance
May 20, 2018 at 10:00 AM
MANSFIELD — Following the overwhelming demand of the January Murder Mystery, the Renaissance Theatre announces it will resurrect “Murder at the Ohio Theatre,” an interactive murder-mystery, at 7 p.m. June 1 and 2 in the theater lobby.
Based on the 1929 murder that took place at the Renaissance, “Murder at the Ohio Theatre” is presented as the final production in the 2017-2018 Richland Bank Broadway Series. Guests will interact with actors, investigate, and examine evidence in order to try to solve the 89-year-old unsolved mystery.
“Many theaters claim to have ghosts, but few theaters have had actual murders happen on site. We have ghost hunters request ghost tours on a regular basis, but this murder-mystery event offers people a chance to play detective with this true unsolved mystery,” said Colleen Cook, director of marketing for the Renaissance and one of the co-creators of the event. “While based in truth, the event is a dramatization inspired by the actual event and takes some liberties on the original story.”
A limited number of tickets are available for $25 each, which includes heavy hors d’oeuvres. Tickets can be purchased online at mansfieldtickets.com, via phone at 419-522-2726 and at the Renaissance box office. Because availability is limited, it is unlikely tickets will be available at the door for this event.
