Murder-mystery takes place at fundraiser event
By Izzy Anderson - Staff Reporter
Stay for dinner and a show as Centerstage hosts the interactive murder-mystery fundraiser Eve's Chain.
This fundraiser is on April 28 at 6:30 p.m. at the Twin Lakes Country Club at 3583 S.W. 320th St., Federal Way.
Eve's Chain features a character named Dr. Cush who is demonstrating to a group of psychiatrists, the audience, a new medication that eliminates violent tendencies. He presents his patient Eve, and from there the story unfolds.
The performance is participatory, so the audience will be involved with the murder mystery, and will have chances to interact with the actors during the show.
"People have been doing interactive murder mystery events for a long time now, and a lot of times they come off as corny," said Alan Bryce, the writer of Eve's Chain and the artistic director for Centerstage.
"For this one I really tried to take them more seriously, to really make it good," he said.
Centerstage is a non-profit organization, so the fundraising from this event goes towards funding the theater.
"[Centerstage] is an economic hub for Federal Way, and 75 percent of our audience comes from outside of Federal Way, so we create a community here as well," Bryce said.
Their goal for this fundraiser is $25,000 in net profits.
Dinner will also be provided.
The meal selections for this evening are flank steak with cognac sauce, marsala chicken, or the chef's choice vegetarian dish. For gluten-free needs please contact 253-661-1444.
You can also participate in both silent and live auctions during this murder mystery fundraiser night.
Early bird tickets are $65 for one person, and $490 for a table of eight.
