Sleepy Eye Community Theatre embarks on new territory with its first interactive, audience participation murder mystery.
Become the celebrated guests of Lord and Lady Moon at the coveted annual Moonlight Masquerade Charity Gala.
When a diamond Tiffany necklace scheduled to be auctioned off at the event mysteriously disappears, it becomes clear that someone present isn't quite what or who they appear to be.

Things take a decidedly sinister turn as members of the entourage turn up dead. Could one of the remaining cast members be responsible? Could someone in the audience help solve these crimes?
The cast includes Lady Silver E. Moon (Brianna Jensen), Lady Luna Cee (Amy Surprenant), Lord Cress N. Moon (Dan Marti), Baron Von Kraterfasse (Aaron Hirsch), Manfred (Wyatt Smith), and Henrietta Quarter (Linda Seifert).
