Come to the Community Room of the Library. The scene is the Magnolia Queen-- a riverboat plying the Mississippi. Among the passengers is Benton Thorne, a plantation owner infamous for his ruthlessness. The vacation his wife Rosie persuaded him to take is brought to an abrupt end by a murderer's blade. With so many enemies, that's no surprise...or is it? Suspects are Cap'n Jacques LeBad--the skipper of the Magnolia Queen; Candy Barr--a burlesque queen from the French Quarter; Marty Graw--a smooth-talking river dandy who loves gambling and women; Rose Thorne-Benton's grieving young widow; Ragtime Joe-a piano player from Bourbon Street; and Allie Gator-a stowaway disguised as a dockboy trying to get home to her sick mother. Playbooks are provided for each character, secret clues are given. Have fun solving the mystery of who really did the dastardly deed. More details including costume suggestions are at the Library. Sign up for a part. The game runs from 12:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m.
