The 187th Annual High Society Debutante Ball is destined to be a night for Charleston’s finest to remember. That is, until high society sweetheart Clara Lodesacash keels over mid-curtsey, in front of all her friends and frenemies.
Who could have ended such a promising young woman’s life so brutally (and publicly)? Was it her oddball older sister, Patricia “Petty” Lodesacash, driven wild by jealousy? Or was it her rival belle of the ball, Quinn Quick? Was it notable southern playboy Shep Sheppard, or one of the Whitehead twins?
Dust off your tuxedo jacket, pour yourself a mint julep, and get ready to come out to society in MURDER AT THE DEBUTANTE BALL.
Appropriate for ages 16+!

Broadway Murder Mysteries, where YOU are the show! Broadway Murder Mysteries was created in March of 2020 when many Broadway performers, writers, and talent were out of work. The Broadway shut down had a huge impact on the theater community, and Broadway Murder Mysteries was created to give jobs to out of work talent, while creating something inherently theatrical that theater and mystery fans would love.
