Check out some promotional stills from the trailer for 'Case of the Murder Oak' filmed on location at the Fort la Reine Museum:

"What is that expression, James?... "Living in a small town is like living in a glass house" you can't escape the rumors or your neighbors. That's the eyeglass most of us live under now, unfortunately. I'm different though you see, I like to look on the bright side of these things. No matter how unfortunate. I like to think everyone is innocent and all of this was just a terrible accident." -Arnold Bennett

WHAT IS MYSTERY AT THE MUSEUM?

"Case of the Murder Oak" will be the 6th Mystery at the Museum hosted at the Fort la Reine Museum in Portage la Prairie. The performances are an hour and a half. It is an interactive live theatre production, where the audience is taken on a tour of the Museum at night, encountering various characters who will deliver monologues and scenes telling a story that involves the audience choosing which character is guilty of the murder in the end. This leaves the audience with something to discuss after the show, wondering if they have made the right decision. Last year for this event, the museum sold out and had to turn away over 200 people who wanted to see the show. Because of the overwhelming amount of interest, this year we will be doing two weekends in September.
