Saturday, August 13, 2:00pm-5:00pm

2293 S Rutland Rd, Mt. Juliet, TN
Providence United Methodist Church

Fundraisers are back and pumped to support the children of Haiti! Please join them this Saturday as they race around Mt. Juliet letting clues lead the way. All proceeds benefit Grace and Glory Academy in Haiti. Over the last eight years, the funds raised from their race have helped provide meals and clothing, build furniture, and provide much needed supplies for their school. This event will be fast paced, mentally challenging, and lots of fun! Teams may consist of 2-4 people per vehicle. During their initial meeting at 2:00pm, your team must complete a brief task that will determine the order in which you leave. At each location visited, you will receive your next clue. You will need your thinking cap most of all. However, a little help from Google will be accepted, so don’t forget your phones!

Sunday, August 14, 7:30pm-9:30pm

11920 Lebanon Rd, Mt. Juliet, TN
Playhouse 615

A wildly campy parody of whodunnits. Imagine if Carol Burnett had written an Agatha Christie mystery crossed with the movie “Clue.” The creative team responsible for a recent Broadway flop (in which three chorus girls were murdered by the mysterious “Stage Door Slasher”) assemble for a backer’s audition of their new show at the Westchester estate of a wealthy “angel.” The house is replete with sliding panels, secret passageways and a German maid who is apparently four different people- all of which figure diabolically in the comic mayhem that follows when the infamous “slasher” makes his reappearance and strikes again.
