Mystery dinner theater benefits ‘Rise to Knowledge’ campaign

WESTFIELD-Billed as a “night of food, fun and murder,” the Westfield Theatre Group takes the stage March 10 for a fun mystery production to benefit the Westfield Athenaeum’s Rise to Knowledge Campaign.
“The event promises a fun evening to support something great,” said Daniel Paquette, director, Westfield Athenaeum.
The production is titled “All’s Well That Ends … Well Maybe Not!” and will be staged in the Lang Auditorium of the Athenaeum. Doors open at 6 p.m. with dinner served at 6:30. The buffet dinner will be catered by Emma’s Everyday Gourmet of Westfield and will feature bruschetta, salad, pasta primavera, Chicken Francese, and pasta with meat sauce and meatballs. Beer and wine will be available.
Paquette noted that the $1.5 million capital campaign is closing in on its goal with approximately $60,000 left to raise toward the phase one project. Since the renovation project began, the Boys’ and Girls’ Library, fiction area and reference room have been gutted, hazardous materials have been removed and new insulation applied for energy efficiency. Also, installation of new fire suppression sprinklers are done, as well as a new ceiling and lights, and the removal of the exterior ramp was completed. Additionally, the construction of the new ramp is done.
“We hope to see this event sell out which supports a great cause,” said Paquette.
The evening begins with an introduction act to the production prior to dinner, followed by the play as participants enjoy their meal.
“During dessert participants can share ideas of who they think committed murder,” said Paquette.
Tickets are $30 per person and can be purchased at the Athenaeum’s circulation desk or online at www.westath.org. Tables of eight can be reserved by contacting the circulation desk.
