GAME SYNOPSIS


Nothing says “Season’s Greetings” like holiday music, Sugarplum fairies, and murder. It's opening night for Balance Ballet Company's production of The Nutcracker, and something seriously unbalanced is going down. The star has been killed, moments before the curtain was set to rise. Was it Demi Pointe, the ambitious understudy? Could it have been Pierre Owet, the perfectionist director? Did the overworked PA, Tan Due, finally snap? Only you can solve the case, save the performance, and make sure the holiday season gets off on the right foot!
