Dinner and a Murder is an (almost) annual fundraiser for OlyCAP’s RSVP program. 2012 is our 6th year. Entertainment is provided in the form of an interactive murder mystery, where you get to be the detective. You will also be served a gourmet dinner with dessert. Drinks are available.

Who benefits from this fundraiser?
This event benefits the Olympic Community Action Programs, specifically OlyCAP’s Retired Senior Volunteer Program. RSVP connects volunteers age 55 and over with service opportunities in their communities that match their skills and availability. To learn more, visit OlyCAP’s website.
Should I bring any cash?
It’s not a bad idea. Drinks are available from the bar. We auction off the best table in the house every year, and we also have some fun conducting “arrests” and posting bail during dinner.
Are children welcome?
Absolutely. Some of our most dedicated sleuths have been children. While there is some mild humor aimed at adults, there is nothing in the show that most children or parents would find offensive.
How does the audience participate?
Members of the audience are invited to solve the mystery. The first part of the show is a live performance that happens on stage while the audience spectates. After dinner is served, the audience gets a chance to question each of the suspects in turn. You then try to solve the murder based on the clues you have collected. You will not be called onto stage to perform. You only have to participate to the level you choose.
Can I come in costume?
Please do! We love it when the audience gets into the show.
