Murder Mystery Dinner Theatre
This year would typically be the year for the Faulkton Area Arts Council’s highly anticipated Murder Mystery Dinner Theatre, but with the country and all of us slowly trying to get past our pandemic crisis, it was decided to postpone the event until January of 2022.
This early spring event started back in 2005 when the arts council celebrated its 30th anniversary. It was an evening with a silent auction, a comedy show, dining and dancing and was a big hit with everyone and was nicknamed the “adult prom.” It was also a good fundraising vehicle for the arts council and that first year they donated the profits to the city to buy tables for the Community Center. In 2007 another similar evening was held and proved to be very successful. A “break” was taken for a few years and then Carrie Deiter brought the idea of a Murder Mystery Dinner Theatre to the arts council and in March of 2011 a new tradition was started that has grown to the every-other-year popular event it is today. It is considered “the” event of the year and brings people from all around the area. So, mark your calendars for January 0f 2022 when the MMDT returns to Faulkton!
