A mystery is uncorked.

A mystery is uncorked.

Don’t Wine If You Are Murdered! takes on poisonous implications when The Comical Mystery Theater Tour ensemble returns to Ventfort Hall Mansion and Gilded Age Museum on Saturday, January 28,2017 at 6:00 pm. The troupe is back by popular demand for another Murder Mystery Dinner Theater program.

Helena Handbasket is hosting a Wine Tasting with world-famous Wine Connoisseur U. Paul McCork, who is showing off his talents. Apparently, his talents aren’t limited to wine! He has managed to upset some people and someone decides he shouldn’t make it to his next appearance. Is it Helena or his assistant Manny Shevit, who wants to move up in the wine world? Or could it have been Booby Vintage, a fierce rival of Paul’s, or Vera Goodyear, a mysterious young woman with a questionable past? The audience is invited to help solve the mystery of who popped Paul’s cork for the last time.

In production since 1995, The Comical Mystery Theater Tour ensemble, that has appeared at the mansion to sold-out audiences, has had over 50,000 audience members attending their programs.

Tickets for “Don’t Wine If You Are Murdered!” are $35 per person including a full-course dinner with a cash bar for beer and wine. Reservations required by Monday, January 23rd. For information or reservations call Ventfort Hall at 413-637-3206 or visit info@gildedage.org. The historical mansion is located at 104 Walker Street in Lenox.

The mansion is open daily for guided tours from 10am to 4 pm, Monday through Saturday and 10am to 3 pm on Sundays. Last tour is one hour before closing. Tour admission is not required to shop in our museum gift shop, open to the public daily.

An Official Project of Save America’s Treasures program sponsored by The White House, Ventfort Hall Mansion and Gilded Age Museum was built in 1893 for George and Sarah Morgan, who was the sister of financier J. P. Morgan. The museum offers tours of the historic mansion, as well as Tea & Talks, such exhibitions as the Bellefontaine Collection, concerts, theater, and other programs. This elegant Jacobean-Revival Berkshire “cottage,” listed on the National Register of Historic Places, is open to the public year round and is available for private rental. Ventfort Hall has undergone substantial restoration, which continues.
