THEME: “Murder at Mardi Gras”

New Orleans’ most prominent neighbourhood has been rocked with the murder of an elite member of it’s circle. Pierrer DuPre, King of the Krewe, was found strangled by an extremely expensive set of Mardi Gras beads. The party revelers must put down their Hurricane drinks and feathered boas to determine the murderer. Solving the mystery of Piere’s death requires all guests to remove their masquerade masks and reveal their vulnerability.

We are recruiting actors for this event. If you would like a roll in our evening, please contact our program coordinator, Paula at 204-560-5181 or by email

Cost: $30 members/ $40 non-members
Location: 3-203 Duffield Street
