From a press release:

Thank you for being a… fiend?

It was announced today that the Keystone Grand Ballroom at Mohegan Pennsylvania in Wilkes-Barre will host a special event, “A Golden Girls Mystery: The Halloween Caper,” on Saturday, Oct. 7 and Sunday, Oct. 8.

This funny and spine-chilling show allows the audience to become a part of the action during a 90-minute murder mystery. Guests will be playing detective and tasked with following clues, interrogating suspects, and more, all themed around the hit sitcom with live actors portraying the iconic characters Dorothy Zbornak, Rose Nylund, Blanche Devereaux, and Sophia Petrillo.

Thanks to Without a Cue Productions, who are currently staging similar shows in Philadelphia and Atlantic City, “The Golden Girls” are at it again. Miami’s Fab Four are planning their annual Halloween Shindig, so the goblins and ghouls have all come out to play.

As Rose dresses the room in traditional St. Olaf Halloween decorations and Blanche dons her cat ears, Dorothy eagerly anticipates a surprise guest – but the surprise might be on her when things don’t work out the way she hoped and Sophia shows everyone her “Psycho” side.

There will be several opportunities to take selfies with the characters (and a fun race to see who can get them all first), hidden clues, and even time to get a mugshot taken. Once the performance begins, guests will become part of the action as they play detective and try to solve the mystery.

This fun-filled event will not serve dinner, but cocktails and other drinks will be available for purchase.

“A Golden Girls Mystery: The Halloween Caper” is recommended for ages 13 and up. Most areas of Mohegan Pennsylvania (1280 Highway 315, Wilkes-Barre), including the hotel, are restricted to ages 21 years and older. All minors attending the show must enter through the hotel entrance, proceed directly to the event, and be accompanied by an adult 21 years of age or older at all times.

The show on Oct. 7 starts at 8 p.m., and the show on Oct. 8 starts at 2 p.m., with doors opening 30 minutes before the start of each showing. Tickets are on sale now for $35 through Without a Cue via OvationTix. Tickets will not be available for purchase at Mohegan Pennsylvania.
