Ohana Arts presents
A Virtual interactive murder mystery dinner theatre experience & fundraiser
Ohana Arts proudly presents a Halloween Spooktacular, a night of interactive murder mystery dinner theater, pandemic-style, starring Ohana Arts and local A-list actors that you won’t want to miss! You are invited to the lavish home of Count Dracula on the afternoon of Halloween for an exclusive gathering of esteemed ghost and ghoul guests. What the Count doesn’t know is that one of his supposed friends is an enemy. Are you there to hobnob with some of Halloween’s most distinguished dignitaries, or are you an undercover detective to single out the one ghost or ghoul who is there to do Count Dracula in? There is only one way to find out.
This Murder Mystery event includes a delicious family dinner box for four, featuring the gory, gourmet cuisine of Chef Brandon Hanagami, and the Lelehua High School Culinary class, and deadly desserts by Ohana Arts’ own Taylor Inouye/Taylor Creations, finalist in the Food Network’s Kids Baking Championship Season 5. This dinner package will include a special Zoom code which will get you into Dracula’s home, along with a coveted clue to help you solve the mystery. This special package can be picked up at the Ohana Arts secret drive-by location, shared only with ticket holders for the event to be picked up between the hours of 12 PM-2 PM on Halloween Day.
Should you have other dinner plans that evening, but would like to join us for this murder mystery experience, you can also purchase a ticket to enter Count Dracula’s home where you can help us solve the mystery. See you there! We’re dying to meet you!
