Murder Mystery Dinner – Calling Elizabeth by Something New Studio

Calling Christina – A Live Murder Mystery Dinner Show where YOU help solve a MURDER!

A Murder Mystery with roots in local legend…

In 1901, Elizabeth and Grover Redland came to Umatilla, FL while passing through from Jacksonville to Orlando. The couple was on their Honeymoon and searching for a homestead to build their life together. Spending the weekend in the newly opened hotel in town, Grover decided to take advantage of all that Lake County had to offer – he went out with another traveler whom he met at the hotel bar. Just after dusk, the stranger returned frantically asking the clerk for Mrs. Redland. When Elizabeth came downstairs the stranger told her that he and Grover had lost each other in the woods and separated. Grover had not been seen for hours.

Despite a two day long search by the local Sheriff, Grover was never seen again. Elizabeth fell deep into depression and locked herself in the hotel room for over a week. One day, Elizabeth emerged from her hotel room with a rope made from bedsheets. She tied one end to the hotel balcony and the other around her neck before throwing herself over the rail.

To this day, the spirit of a Elizabeth is said to haunt this building.

On October 14th, 2020, Madame Claire Voyant – psychic to the stars – has come to the former hotel, now a local restaurant, to learn the truth about this haunting. However, Claire may be in for a shock as another body is added to the afterlife before the evening is over!

With a cast of characters all with their own reasons to want to commit murder we soon learn that the past is not always as far behind us as we may think…
