It’s 1956 in Winter Springs, an idyllic town that is the personification of the ‘dream life’, with white picket fences line the streets, behind which live the happiest families! At least, that’s what the residents of Winter Springs would have you believe…
About fifteen kilometres down the main drag is another town, Forestville, and they rival everything about Winter Springs. The towns have been feuding for decades, and when the kids are not racing one another down the main drag between the towns, they are fighting over turf.
The teens of Winter Springs were all abuzz – it was the night of the Sock Hop! But when prized student Jessie Ashford is found dead at Lovers’ Lane, the teens around town are rounded up and brought to the school dance to discover who had the motive, means and opportunity to kill her!
Who killed her? Why? And where was everyone in the town at the time of her murder?

Great time! This was our second murder mystery party and it generates huge fanfare each time. The mysteries are set up to be challenging but not overly challenging and its great that everyone can participate without knowing who the killer is beforehand! This company is great to work with and is always accommodating to questions.
The best party – EVER! Shot in the Dark Mysteries made the planning so easy that we could focus on making our basement look like an 80s prom. Our theme was “Chiller Thriller” and we had a blast decorating. Every person that came said they had so much fun and wanted to host their own parties. The idea that no knows who the killer is works so well. Thanks Shot in the Dark Mysteries for providing an easy, fabulous way to have fun with friends!
I love Shot in the Dark mysteries! They made so many of our parties (birthdays, new years, just because!) extra special by getting our friends engaged in solving the crimes! They’re such a great value, and even our friends that aren’t extroverts can get into being a character and sleuthing. I also love that I am able to host and participate in the murder mystery! So much fun!!
