Solve a Murder Mystery with the Speakeasy Fundraiser at Lake Worth Playhouse

Maybe it's the latest season of Downton Abbey. Or perhaps it's the upcoming premiere of The Great Gatsby. Whatever it is, the style and flair of the roaring twenties are back. Everywhere you look, it's Daisy and Jay drinking this and wearing that. And you know what? We like it. 

The beginning of the modern era, the twenties were a time of rebellious youth and secret boozing. Hem lines hadn't been that high since men were wearing togas. And, if Agatha Christie's any guide -- and, of course, she is -- every time more than three people gathered for a dinner party, someone got murdered. 

The Lake Worth Playhouse is setting out to recreate that same debauchery and those mysterious dead folks with a murder mystery fundraiser. 

On January 23, as a fundraiser and in celebration of their run of The Drowsy Chaperone, which is running from January 17 to February 3, the Lake Worth Playhouse is transforming into an old fashioned speakeasy.

There will be, they say, "men everywhere, jazz everywhere, booze everywhere," and of course a little murder.

Come dressed in full 1920s gear for this interactive theatrical experience. The evening begins promptly at 7 p.m. Arriving on time is a matter of life and death, given that clues to solve the mystery need to all be heard. 

And if you need a little jazzy inspiration, here's a little scene from another 1920s musical you might be familiar with.

Speakeasy on January 23, 7 p.m., Lake Worth Playhouse, 713 Lake Avenue, Lake Worth. Tickets are $35 and can be purchased at lakeworth-playhouse.ticketleap.com/the-speakeasy.
