The Nevada Union Theatre Society presents, “The Great High School Whodunit,” an audience participation mystery dinner theatre experience. Shows are tonight, Saturday, Jan. 28, 29 and 30.

When the fictitious Dudley High School holds an assembly to honor the prestigious Dudley family for their many generous donations to the school, all hell breaks loose. Mrs. Dudley’s diamond ring has been stolen from the school safe, and it’s up to the audience and their fellow “students” to solve the mystery by searching for clues hidden around the school.

While enjoying dinner and dessert, audience members are encouraged to become one of the students at Dudley High as “table teams” try to solve the mystery of who stole the Dudley diamond. The audience will witness many important events that will reveal clues as to the thief’s identity. Table teams will also have the opportunity to interrogate suspects as they wind their way through campus looking for clues that will lead them to the criminal. Following the clue hunt, tables will formulate and submit theories based on the evidence they have collected, competing against other tables for the honor of putting the thief behind bars. Admission includes dinner, dessert, and beverage. Tickets are $20 for reserved seating or $150 for a table of eight and can be purchased online by visiting http://nutheatre.seatyourself.biz.
