Murder mystery comes to Breckenridge

Last year, the Breckenridge Festival of Film sponsored a rip-roarin’ Old West murder mystery, performed by notable members of the community, which made it even more entertaining.This year, the theme changes to that of Zorro, but the night promises to be full of black-caped antics, and the audience is highly encouraged to participate by dressing around the theme and questioning suspicious characters, who include Sean Swarner (first cancer survivor to summit Mt. Everest), CJ Mueller (Olympic racer in 1992, who was clocked at 137 mph), Kate Putnam (Grand Lodge employee), Jay Beckerman (Blue River Bistro owner who will play the lead of Zorro, Scandinavian style), Mark Burke (owner of Burke & Riley’s, council member and latest Mardi Gras king) and Cindy Love (vice president of Millennium Bank).The mystery begins during cocktail hour, as cast members mingle with guests while dropping clues before the actual skit takes place.Carisa Peterson and Justin Schlosberg wrote the script. Peterson has been an actress in, and one of the several principal writers for, the Backstage Theatre’s Locals Lounge comedy series since its inception. Schlosberg owns Ole Man Berkins Bookstore and Oddities. He moved from the Yukon Territory to Summit County, where he’s lived “longer than he cares to admit.”The evening includes three courses of Spanish cuisine.The 31st annual Breckenridge Festival of Film takes place June 9-12.
