    1950s Murder Mystery Synopsis:

    In the mid-1950s, Fontaine City had a severe problem with teenaged street gangs with the east versus the west side of town. There was the hot rod racing gang called the D-Birds in the east. Their ladies were members of the girly clique called the Pink Chicks. These rebels went to school at Ryder High and spent their free time at their local hangout called Frosty’s Diner. Over on the west side of town, there was a motorcycle gang that went by the name of the Pit Vipers and their ladies were called the Black Widows. These hooligans attended Tuscadero High School and spent their free time at their local hangout - the Milkshake Shack. Occasionally, a dangerous drag race on Lightening Road would take place or a skirmish would break out if the opposing gangs discovered each other on their turfs or with their ladies, but for the most part - the Fontaine Police Department had the situation under control. At Ryder High, the cheerleaders formed the Campus Crew which was focused on reducing gangs and gang activity in the city. They thought that bringing the teens of Fontaine City together would help to solve the gang problem so they scheduled what was known to them as the Fontaine City 'Friendship' Sock Hop. To their surprise, both teens from the east and west arrived on the scene in fabulous '50s attire and enjoyed yummy appetizers while quizzing each other on fun '50s trivia. They engaged in thrilling party games such as the So You Think You Can ’50s Contest! The guests, for the most part, surprisingly got along without a hitch but it was soon unveiled that there was even an internal strife happening within the gangs. The Campus Crew got things back on track with a delicious '50s dinner while the guests drained their brains with a Sprinkle of the '50s Movie Challenge. To everyone’s shock, a murder victim was discovered and the teens quickly rallied together to figure out whodunit before the murderer could escape. After Detective Watson from the Fontaine City P.D. performed a preliminary forensic analysis of the crime scene, each guest submitted their final guesses of whodunit and took turns accusing each other. Then, everyone admitted to any involvement they had with the crime and the murderer confessed! After a brilliant escape attempt, the guests calmed everything down with another fun party game. Overall it was a sock hop that nobody in Fontaine City will ever forget!
