The fourth installment of Murder Mystery Dinner is coming to the Owensboro Convention Center on Friday. The event — “A Dance with Death” — will follow safety guidelines including mask and distancing requirements.

When a death on the dance floor makes a 1950s prom party night go foul, it’s up to the guests to gather information about the crime and reveal the culprit. 

“Our Murder Mystery Dinners are a great way for people to have a fun, entertaining night while still following COVID-19 policies and protocols,” said Laura Alexander, General Manager with Spectra, the providers of Venue Management to the Convention. “We successfully hosted one back in September that was a huge hit and immediately started planning for the next one. The actors really engage the audience and bring them into the storyline.”
A ’50s-themed dinner will include chicken pot pie, pot roast, roasted red potatoes, broccoli and cheddar cheese casserole, lemon cake, and banana pudding with caramel sauce. For guests 21 and over, a cash bar will feature specialty drinks.
Doors open at 6 p.m. for cocktail hour. Dinner will start at 6:30 p.m., followed by the murder mystery.
 Due to COVID-19 policies, no more than six people will be allowed to sit at a 66” banquet table and all parties will be spaced apart to allow for proper social distancing. All drinks and food will be served individually. 


Performers and audience participants must wear masks and maintain a 6-foot distance. At this time, guests are also required to wear masks except when sitting down while eating or drinking at their table.
