WPBS CELEBRATING 60 YEARS STRONG

Join us Friday, August 3 at Singer Castle on Dark Island

WPBS & The Butler Did it Players Present: Sherlock Holmes Themed Murder Mystery At Singer Castle. "Murder & Mayhem Wedding Caper".

Join us as we travel back in time to the Thousand Islands in the 1940's. Here, this was an era of big band music, road racing, boating excursions and visits by the rich and famous. Singer Castle on Dark Island was no exception to those long luxurious summer days. But something is amiss... a wedding was to take place in the garden of the castle. A no expenses spared event to celebrate the union of an only daughter to an up and coming young man. But there can be no wedding without the bride, and this joyous day turned sinister when her lifeless body was found among the roses in the hours before dawn. No cause of death! No witnesses! The family and the local police have no leads! Who will find the killer so that this murdered soul can rest? Why, the most famous detective in history! Sherlock Holmes! Holmes and Dr. Watson will travel from Alexandria Bay to Dark Island aboard an Uncle Sam boat to put their detective skills to work and you are invited to join them! Dress in your best 1940's attire: a fedora, suspenders, a zoot suit, gloves, saddle shoes, a teadress... and join us on a tour traveling through the gardens and the castle itself meeting the family, eavesdropping on the staff, and gathering clues. Be sure to take notes because you'll be given the chance to interview the characters and make a guess about who-dunnit, how, and why! Step inside our real life game of CLUE with Sherlock Holmes as your guide!
