Event Description
IMMERSIVE MURDER MYSTERY
WITH DINNER AND SHOW

Magnolia City Immersive Murder Mystery


The year was 1926, Houston, Texas, during the age of Prohibition.


Welcome to the Golden Key Speakeasy.


Where gangsters and bootleg booze ruled the city.


A playground of sin and revelry for the rich and famous.


An age when self-indulgence, debauchery and jazz were the only rules of the game.


And everything was to gain at the casino…and the only thing worth losing was innocence.


The gilded age of Houston’s elite.


When Houston was known as – Magnolia City.


A place where only a handful of men shaped the future and nothing could stand in their way.


Nothing but murder.


This is their kingdom…and you are invited.


Enter the parlor and meet the flappers and starlets who, on the hunt for fame and fortune, found a love instead.


But an affair in the heart of Magnolia City could be deadly.


Rub elbows with the likes of the dangerously dapper John Kirby and distillery tycoon Charles Romano.


Elegant. Charming. Stylish.


They built opulent Houston from the ground up. And that’s some dirty business.


Nobody’s clean in Magnolia City.


People who crossed them had a way of disappearing for good.


There’s no place to hide among these great Houstonians of the era – like Jakie Freedman and William Hobby.


‘Cause when the shots ring out – the pieces of the puzzle are not easily found.


Somewhere in the Speakeasy lies the body of an innocent man.
(Scream is heard)


But what’s missing from this murder mystery?


Dance, mingle and keep your eyes peeled for clues.


Your nocturnal investigation might be missing something that’s right under your nose.


Not everyone is convinced that this was an accident…but who is concealing the truth?


Is it Mae West?


With glamour and wit to die for.


Is it Howard Hughes?


As the mystery depends, where can the next clue be found?


A spade is a spade. Or is it?


How about Sophie Tucker?


Since when do showgirls carry a gun?


This crime is an intricate puzzle. Can you piece it together and find the real killer?


It’s a mystery where all of your senses are engaged.


Friends are hard to come by in Magnolia City.


Sundays at the Golden Key Speakeasy.


Where you hold the key.


“In an immersive theatre production, the audience in some way plays a role, whether that is the role of a witness or the role of an actual character. They may be allowed to roam and explore the performance space as the performance happens around them, allowing them to decide what they see and what they skip. They might be herded from room to room so they see the key scenes. They might even be invited to become a more active part of the performance. The lines between performer and audience and between performance and life are blurred.” – thespace.com
