The theatre department is looking to revitalize itself this year. As part of this, it is organizing Final Cut, an interactive murder mystery event with an intention to raise funds for theater scholarships. The event will be Saturday, Nov. 10 at Vinewood in the banquet hall. The ticket price is $50. The audience is encouraged to wear their best red-carpet costumes. Hors d’oeuvres and drinks will be served as well. The seven characters will talk to the audience in between scenes and there will be free previews of the show Nov. 7, 8 and 9 at the Andrew J. and Georgia Neese Gray Theatre at Washburn University.
“We want to create opportunities to foster real connections and not just put on cute shows,” said Jane Elliot, lecturer at Washburn.
