Once Upon A Murder

Once Upon A Murder

In a land not too far away (maybe even closer that you think), a group of somewhat familiar characters gather to solve a mystery. The leader of the group, Jack Hill, noted mountain climber and carrier of pails has been murdered...drowned in a pail of water. Pinned to his body is a frightening note. His friends include Beau (the girl who loves her pet sheep), Scarlett (who wears a red hood and brings snacks in a basket), Cindy (who must be home by 12:00), Jill (his pail carrying companion), Miss Muffy Moffett (who loves cottage cheese), Ryan Arachnid (spider specialist) Thomas Wolfe, (the newcomer) and John Horner (the shy pie-lover).

These friends must solve the mystery quickly before another of their company falls out. They all know the old song "so they all rolled over and one fell out...there were 8 in the bed and the little one said..."

Jack, the famous hill climber and pail carrier has been drowned in a pail of water. Sometimes 'once upon a time' does not end 'happily ever after'. A fun party suited to everyone from 12 up to 102!
