Murder Mystery in the Garden

What?!  A murder?  You won’t believe the mayhem the Garden!  Join us in the Garden along with the Kings Players on June 19th for supper and sleuthing.  Bring your favorite wine and we’ll begin with drinks at 6:30 pm, and the mischief begins at 7:15 pm.  This is an adults-only event.  You can purchase tickets on our website,, Facebook Events, at the Garden during open hours; by mail at CSG&M PO Box 363, Hanford, CA  93232; or from any CSG&M staff member.  Tickets may also be purchased from the Board Members of Kings Players.

A night of celebration, food, and mystery 

Farmer John Dell, Glenda (Goldie) Lockes, Ignacious Marconi (I. M.) DeWolfe, Bonnie (Bo)  Peep, Peter Carpenter, and Scarlett LeHoode are among the people from Stonybrook  gathered at the Garden to celebrate Maude (Mother) Goose’s birthday. Jack B. Nimble  presents her with a beautiful candlestick as their gift. Unfortunately, one of people at the party  will be murdered and the rest become suspects. 

Amateur sleuth, Henrietta Pennysmith and rest of the cast from Kings Players will help guests  work though the possible motives, evaluate alibis, and review clues. Dinner guests will be  asked to help solve the murder so that the villain can be brought to justice!  

Whether you come for the mystery challenge or just to enjoy a wonderful dinner in the beautiful  Children’s Storybook Garden and Museum, your support will help keep both organizations  providing quality experiences for the community.
