In A Party to Murder, guests have arrived at a cottage on a remote island to partake in a murder mystery during Halloween weekend. At first, it's all fun and games. Then, the first person dies, then another. Complicating matters further are ghosts who haunt the game, which has become a real mystery.

Marcia Kash and Douglas E. Hughes created A Party to Murder, and Bekki Jo Schneider directd it. The cast features Janet Essenpreis, Melissa Combs, David Myers, Tina Jo Wallace, J.R. Stuart, and Cary Wiger.

During A Party to Murder's run, the Footnotes will perform approximately a half-hour before all performances except Wednesday matinees. The buffet, meanwhile, will consist of Derby fried fish, Derby fried chicken, carved roast beef Au Jus (evening shows only), beef stroganoff (matinees only), vegetables, and a salad bar.
