Alamance County Public Libraries’ annual murder mystery is sure to be a storybook event this year, filled with intrigue and excitement and a healthy dose of comedy. With help from the audience, it won’t take any time at all to figure out who murdered our victim.

The Fairy Godmother was a kind and compassionate woman, who bestowed only the best of gifts to the best of people. For decades, she was the go-to fairy for all things magical. She was always willing to help her storybook friends…or was she?

Someone in fairytale world certainly didn’t think so! Could it be the terribly dashing Prince Charming? Or his lovely wife, Cinderella? Perhaps Prince Naveen had something to do with it? The evil Queen Raveena could have done it! She is evil after all, but what about Raveena’s stepdaughter, Snow White? Maybe she put her up to it. And we can’t forget Fairy Godmother’s second-in-command, Tinkerbell! Not to mention, Rump. He’s looking quite suspicious these days.

Did the Fairy Godmother “help” the wrong friend? Were her gifts actually curses? Why kill her? Who had the motive? Who had the heart? Who murdered the Fairy Godmother?

Between all the political espionage, backstabbing, and hidden romance, this year’s murder mystery is one not to be missed. Expect anger, secrets, revenge, and what’s a murder mystery without the fairytale court-of-law being involved?

The event itself is free and for adults only. It will take place at May Memorial Library at 7:00pm on both Friday, July 28th and Saturday, July 29th. Light hors d’oeuvres will be provided, so please come a little hungry.

Tickets will be made available starting Monday, July 3rd at 10:00am and are available electronically this year at this website: http://www.eventkeeper.com/mars/xpages/A/ALAMANCE/ekp.cfm?curOrg=ALAMANCE. As always, space is limited, so please remember to book yours early!
