(Dover, Ohio) – The Friends of the Dover Public Library will host a special mystery dinner event on Saturday, February 8 called, “The Broadcast Radio Murders of 1947.”
The year is 1947 and the story unfolds during the weekly performance of the Broadcast Radio Revue on station WSPU. On the air, every detail is controlled and timed to the second, but behind the scenes there is chaos.
The contract with the program sponsor, Happy Soda, is up for renewal, the murder trial of star Hedda La Teus is still front-page news and television is starting to take over America’s airwaves.
This original production, performed by Mr. E. Murder Productions, will feature characters such as station manager Lou Potter, singer Melody Raines, Chester Drawers, the man of a million voices, Graham Crocker, the leading man and Wally Wallingford, the CEO of Happy Soda.
This fun, interactive, lighthearted mystery dinner event will take place inside the Dover Public Library. Doors will open at 6:30 PM. Tickets are $50 each and are available for purchase at the Dover Public Library, located at 525 N. Walnut Street, or online at www.doverlibrary.org.
The Dover String Choir from Dover High School will provide 1940’s music as guests take their seats before the show. Dinner will feature wood-fired, artisan pizza courtesy of Bahler Street Pizza. A cash wine bar will be available along with craft beers courtesy of Hoodletown Brewing Co. Prizes will be awarded to the best 1940’s costume and to the individual who solves the murder mystery. There will also be a 50/50 raffle.
Sponsored by The Law Office of Dennis Traver of Dover, Ohio, this community event will benefit the Friends of the Dover Public Library, a non-profit organization dedicated to the enhancement of the Dover Public Library so that it may fulfill its literary, educational, technological, community and cultural purposes.
