Are you looking to attend a killer of an event? If so, then you need to join the Student's Treasure Chest's murder Mystery Dinner with entertainment provided by 'It's A Mystery'.
It's a Mystery, as featured in Southern Living Magazine, will be performing an original murder mystery performed, as you dine, by a professional troupe of seven accomplished actors. They will bring to life exciting characters with colorful backgrounds and questionable motives. The sophisticated plot that ensues will provide you with clues to help you pin down the perpetrator...or perpetrators of a dastardly deed.
The Students' Treasure Chest is a student-led, philanthropic, fundraising organization that supports students at East Carolina University. It is the student affiliate of the East Carolina University Foundation and this mission is to foster a spirit of service and philanthropy within the student body, to address the emergent financial needs of students, and to encourage students to become life-long donors to East Carolina University.
