Murder in Maui

The Oceanside Palace Hotel of Maui was hosting their nightly luau on Sunset Beach.  Exciting Polynesian spirit filled the air as the guests were greeted with festive Hawaiian leis.  Everybody mingled while enjoying delicious appetizers. The celebration kicked off with fun party games, but it became apparent that some guests didn’t get along and others were hiding scandalous secrets. The party forged on with a delicious Hawaiian dinner while the guests enjoyed a fun challenge.  With stuffed bellies, the luau party-goers gossiped and laughed, and to everyone’s horror, a dead body was discovered!  The guests rallied together and underwent a thorough investigation including a fiber analysis provided by the local police department.  Taking short breaks to relieve the stress of the investigation, they engaged in more exciting party games.  They took turns accusing the suspects they believed were guilty, and everyone came clean with their involvement in the crime.  Backed into a corner, the murderer confessed!  After a brave escape attempt by the killer, the guests enjoyed a delectable dessert and reflected on the evening’s exciting events! It was a luau that the guests will remember forever!

Invited Guests

 

PONI MULOKELI
Hula Dancer / Hawaiian Native
Poni Mulokeli is the hard working performer for the Oceanside Palace Hotel Luaus on Sunset Beach.  She’s an obnoxious one-upper who’s not the most popular employee among the staff of the hotel!  Extended chats with this feisty entertainer are definitely worth avoiding - if you know what is good for you.
COSTUME SUGGESTIONS: Hawaiian top and grass skirt. Flower (real or silk) in hair. Long, black wig is an optional prop. Leis are optional accessories.

 

ROBBIE PETERS
Hollywood Actor / Tourist
Robbie Peters is a Hollywood hunk who is currently vacationing - in total disguise - for a month in Hawaii with his co-star Kirstin Withers. They’re relaxing in between films - hidden far from the paparazzi.  But Robbie’s narcissism and arrogant attitude are a little much for the laid back staff of the Oceanside Palace Hotel.  Robbie is traveling under the alias ‘Harry Spotter.’
COSTUME SUGGESTIONS: Casual yet trendy beach attire. Sunglasses as an optional prop.

 

KIRSTIN WITHERS
Hollywood Actress/ Tourist
Kirstin Withers is known as one of Hollywood’s nicest young stars. At least that’s the side of Kirstin that Hollywood’s seen! On a more personal level, away from the glitz and glam, this spoiled diva lets it loose with angry tirades if she doesn’t get her way. She’s currently in disguise as an average Jane and she doesn’t like it much, as she doesn’t get the attention she does as a movie star. Kirstin is traveling under the alias ‘Paula Jaxson.’
COSTUME SUGGESTIONS: Casual yet trendy beach attire. Sunglasses as an optional prop.

Tiki is known for his innovative dance moves and outgoing personality.  He’s the one to get a party started – but hopefully, not while on duty!  The locals are starting to worry that Tiki might be losing his edge as a lifeguard.
COSTUME SUGGESTIONS: Beach attire with optional whistle.

JACK MARROW
Deep Sea Fisherman/ Resident Tourist

Waiter / Hawaiian Native

COSTUME SUGGESTIONS: Waiter uniform or black shirt / pants with a half apron (bartender’s apron).

 

HOLI MULOKELI
