If you’ve never been to dinner theatre, it is basically like going to a play where you get to eat dinner and drink at the same time; all while possibly being part of the show. If you throw in some Halloween shenanigans and a murder mystery story, you’ve got Fort Calgary’s Act 1, Murder 2: Night of the Living Dead.
The Halloween-themed entertainment will fill The Barracks at Fort Calgary on October 31, for a night of zombie theatrics. The show’s premise is as follows:
“Your agent called, you’re wanted on the set of Sage Productions’ latest movie: Night of the Living Dead 13. If the actors are short handed (or dead) you might land the lead role. Choose to be a zombie or a hero because when the guts and goo hit the fan, it will be your job to choose sides and get to the cold heart of it all.”
Patrons can either dress as a zombie, a super-hero zombie killer or anything of their choosing. The buffet dinner begins at 7 p.m. and the mystery continues until 10 p.m. The ticket price includes dinner, entertainment and gratuity on food.
