WHEN: Friday May 10th and Saturday May 11th at 6pm

WHERE: The Red Mill Pavilion

WHAT: The Portland Civic Players and the Friends of the Red Mill are sponsoring a Murder Mystery Dinner fundraiser. It promises to be entertaining!

“Murder at the Banquet” presented by Portland Civic Players
This lighthearted and humorous send-up of famous detectives dishes out a bountiful feast of wisecracks seasoned with physical comedy! The International Association of Mystery Solvers is hosting an awards banquet for the “world’s greatest detectives.” As Foster Holmes, Sherlock’s descendant, steps up beside the host to speak, Jenny Watson bursts in. She is protesting her ancestor’s role as Sherlock’s sidekick! Alas, the lights go out, and, when they return . . . well, it’s time for Foster and Jenny to team up with an aging British sleuth, a forgetful gumshoe and a hillbilly sheriff to solve this crime.


  • Dinner will be catered by Taste of Heaven
  • Tickets can be purchased for $30 each from Noreen Logel by calling 517-743-1830

Tables will seat 8 people, so why not take Mom out for Mother’s Day and reserve a whole table? Because this event sold out last year, we are adding an additional night – May 11th.

There are only 160 tickets to be sold per night.
