Murder Mystery Night at Wheeling Central High School

WHEELING — Want something fun and exciting to do during the fall days of November, or better yet to take your sweetheart out and relive those totally rad days of your senior prom?

Well the Wheeling Central Performing Arts Boosters will host the “Totally Rad ’80s Prom’s Gone Bad” murder mystery party at 7 p.m. Nov. 9 at the high school.

Join in a fun evening that includes the murder of one of the characters during the event. Doors open at 6:15 p.m.

With their high school careers coming to an end, the students of Mayhem High find themselves battling it out over grades, popularity, affection, class rankings and what they all have been focused on for years … Who will be awarded the prom king and queen title?

Will it be the class president who is looking to extend his reign past the student council? The pompom captain who has used her moves to land more than a prom court nomination? Or possibly the math team captain who is desperate to make his name in something other than academics.

As the night unfolds, the royalty will be rewarded and an innocent life will be claimed. From the preppie to the punk rocker, the spaz to the stud, the jock to the jilted, all are suspected although only one is to blame. Can you find the culprit in this crazy madness that is filled with neon, naughtiness and narcissistic behavior?

“We thought it would be fun to do something different as a fundraiser this year. This is our first event like this and we thought it would be great doing a murder mystery.

“We chose Totally Rad ’80s Prom – Gone Bad for this year’s theme. Everyone loves to relive those years of big hair, mullets, and neon.” stated Laura Konkoleski, president of the Central Performing Arts Boosters.

So pull out that bottle of Aqua Net and tease your hair for this fun evening!
