Winchester brings classic board game to life

Like many of you probably did, when I was growing up I loved to play the classic board game Clue. For those of you who have heard it, you know the drill — the answer is Colonel Mustard, in the dining room with the candlestick — or at least something like that right? Well now, you have the opportunity to live out my favorite childhood board game.
Coming up, on Friday, Sept. 27, and Saturday, Sept. 28, is a Murder Mystery Tour event at Rouss City Hall on 15 N. Cameron Street, in downtown Winchester.
There is an evening performance both days from 6:30 p.m. to 9 p.m., and a matinee on Saturday from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. Tickets can be bought in advance at the Winchester-Frederick County Visitors Center for $8, or at the door for $10.
During the event, people will take part in searching throughout the six levels of the courthouse in hopes of solving the murder. There are a few tips you should know. To start with, be sure to keep an eye out for any clues that will help you get closer to solving the mystery.
Also, be ready to run. You can still rock the scandalous Miss Scarlett look, however you might want to leave the high heels at home.
There are a lot of stairs, and nobody wants a sprained ankle when trying to solve a mystery. And, don’t think about cheating your way out of it with the elevator as access to it will be limited during the event.
Students from Shenandoah University will also be acting in this mystery. Make sure you come out and support the S.U. and Winchester community and find out if Colonel Mustard is still the murder.
