The Calico Rock Museum hosts its first “Mystery Night at the Museum” on Saturday evening, October 19th. After a sit-down dinner, the Peppersauce Players will portray seven characters from local history ranging from the 1860’s through the 1960’s.


“Each character represents a different time and a different occupation,” said Museum Executive Director Gloria Gushue. “Each will talk about his or her experiences and then provide a clue to a secret which will be revealed at the end of the performance.”


Dinner will be served at 6:00 p.m. in the Visitors Center next door to the Museum. The “Mystery Night at the Museum” performance begins at 7:00 p.m. Tickets are $40 each with all proceeds benefiting the Calico Rock Museum. Tickets are limited and must be purchased in advance.
