Picture yourself in a deerstalker, brow furrowed, puffing away on a curved pipe.

You, a Sherlock Holmes wannabe, are doing what comes naturally.

Solving a crime.

Start your holiday night off with cocktails, appetizers, awesome entertainment –  and white-knuckle intrigue.

Telluride Theatre and the Michael D. Palm are partnering for a unique fundraiser, “Murder at the Palm,” an original interactive murder mystery. The event takes place Friday, December 28, 7 p.m. at the Michael D. Palm Theatre.

Be there. Or beware.

The year is 1952. Eisenhower is in the White House and America is having a Camelot (all is right with the world) moment. Except at The Palm, where something’s rotten. So rotten someone has been driven to murder most foul.

With audience as witness – dressed Film Noirish –  everyone will be guided through the gory details to help solve the crime. Unlike other murder mystery nights, however, you can choose how much or little to participate, though it is unlikely you will want to sit out in this gripping, fun, original play.

All proceeds from the fundraiser go to support Telluride Theatre, the region’s only year-round theatre company, and the Palm Theatre, which presents unique live and digital programming throughout the year and provides a home for numerous non-profits to realize their educational and artistic goals.

Running time: 90 minutes. Not suitable for children under 13.

Tickets, $50, available all week here or call 970-369-5669.
