Dinner and a Murder is an (almost) annual fundraiser for children’s programs of the PT Kiwanis Club and OlyCap. 2015 is our 8th 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 children’s programs of the PT Kiwanis Club and OlyCap. The Port Townsend Kiwanis Club is part of Kiwanis International, a global organization of individuals dedicated to serving the world, one child and one community at a time. More than 13,000 clubs make their mark by responding to the need of their communities. This way they truly are “Serving the Children of the World”. To learn more, visit PT Kiwanis and OlyCap.
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.
