Murder at Anonville Manor

The historical Anonville Manor closed for business years ago because of a desperate need for restoration and daft rumors of ghost hauntings. The previous owners abandoned the rundown property, never turning back.

A secretive entrepreneur purchased the old bed & breakfast. The property has undergone renovations, and the owner announced to the media that the manor is free of paranormal activity, and has been restored to the pristine caliber of the good ole’ days when the estate was frequented by the rich and famous. The proprietor has chosen to remain anonymous, but the townsfolk have found that choice to be quite mysterious. An exclusive group of guests have received invitations to the grand opening dinner party to be held in the legendary Majestic Ballroom of the estate. You are on the guest list. You are intrigued, but apprehensive, as not everybody on the invite list gets along well, and sparks could fly. This is where your story begins.

Invited Guests

Biology Professor
Alberta Newton is an absent-minded biology professor at Anonville University. Inquire about science, and she’ll blow you away with her intellect. Chat about any other topic, she’s an average Jane. 
COSTUME SUGGESTIONS: A business suit or a lab jacket.


If you looked up narcissism in the dictionary, Sam Chawpalot’s picture would be plastered by the description. Sam is the friendly, self-loving butcher with an over-exaggeration problem.  Take what Sam says with a grain of salt.
COSTUME SUGGESTIONS: Apron and butcher’s hat. Plastic butcher knife as an optional prop.


London Wilton grew up in Anonville, and is now visiting from Beverly Hills to scout a location for the next Wilton Resort.  Everyone is growing tired of the tabloids exposing London’s troubles - especially the townspeople of this peaceful town! This jet-setting socialite is known as Hollywood’s wild child. 
COSTUME SUGGESTIONS: Glamorous evening gown. Small, stuffed dog as an optional prop.


Is there a doctor in the house? Yes, of course! It’s Dr. Doctor Dijon! He’s the one to tell you to eat an apple a day…except it won’t keep him far away, as he’s only 3 inches from your face when he’s speaking to you! This close-talking behavior is surprising since the good doc has an intense fear of germs!
COSTUME SUGGESTIONS: Lab coat with a stethoscope as an optional prop. Breath mints are suggested.


Pastry Chef
Shugga Ann Flower is the best pastry chef in Anonville! The morning ovens warm up at Shugga’s Bakery, and the sweet sugar molecules flood the streets. The townies flock to get her tasty treats as soon as the neon in the open sign glows.
COSTUME SUGGESTIONS: Chef’s hat and chef’s jacket with rolling pin as an optional prop.


Mayor of Anonville
There are two sides to Mayor Paul A. Tisshon - and only one of them is courteous! If you have something to offer, he’s the nicest man you’ll ever meet.  However, if you double-cross him, you’ll encounter his dark side. Those who have seen Paul’s mean spirits never seem the same again.


Rita Bookaday is not your typical librarian.  She’s young and broke with a mischievous aura. On a personal level, Rita can be unpredictable and quite silly. However, she is quick to assist when you need help at the Anonville Library.

Local Celebrity
Mister Crimson is the most charismatic man you’ll ever see on local TV.  On camera, he’s the perfect gentleman - someone you’d love to take home to the parents.  Off the set, he’s a pig with the most dreadful manners you’ve ever witnessed. Ladies, this is one package you don’t want to open!

Police Chief
You would never guess a meager, self-questioning man could climb his way into the highest-ranked spot with the Anonville Police Department! Chief C.R.
