It's 1925 (or 1935--you pick the era)...Cruella and Scarletta Slink, known for their extravagant parties, are throwing the event of the year...

The socially prominent guests who will be attending are busily preparing their extravagant costumes for an unforgettable night of mingling, martinis and...."murder." Everyone who is anyone is on the guest list and those who are not…are pretending to "have other plans."

Guests will enjoy dancing and the sounds of the live Swing Band. No party would be complete without an appearance by the world-renowned opera singer, "Mario Lungsa." We just hope he does'nt bring his dreadful friend "Booze-O." As a professional clown, Booze-0 is on every parent’s list of must-have entertainers for their children’s parties. Although much loved by the children, this "clown" has stuck his red nose in the wrong place one too many times.

We invite you to try to solve one of the most fascinating crimes in the history of the "Stardust" Ballroom. A rare and valuable diamond necklace will be stolen from the
swan-like neck of one of the socially prominent guests attending the Masquerade Ball. If this is not bad enough, the plot thickens when one of the suspects…is murdered!  

Whodunit? Where is the necklace hidden? Who will die? Who did it? How will this brazen crime be committed? What's the motive? Join our cast of suspicious characters for a night of masquerade, mystery, martinis and...murder!
