There is dismay in the manger at the annual Christmas Pageant rehearsal. Mayor Rufus Yates has written a horrible holiday havoc and he’s cast the show in a manner that has everyone’s secrets at risk. Was Mayor Yates trying to roast more than chestnuts when he assigned the roles to this cast of Wild West misfits? Join our perilous pageant posse and help our hero, Marshal Jim Courtright, sort through his list of who’s been naughty or nice. This is one interactive murder mystery dinner experience that will put the “Ho Ho Ho” into your Holidays!
