It’s 1955 and Fontaine City has a problem with teenage street gangs. In the east, there’s a hot rod racing gang called the D-Birds. Their ladies are members of the girly clique called the Pink Chicks. These rebels attend Ryder High and spend their free time at Frosty’s Diner. The Pit Viper motorcycle gang runs the west side of town, and their ladies are the Black Widows. These hooligans attend Tuscadero High School and frequent the local hangout - the Milkshake Shack. If either of these gangs ends up on the other’s turf, a white knuckle rumble may break out and cause chaos in the streets.
At Ryder High, the cheerleaders have formed an organization known as Campus Crew which was created to focus on reducing criminal activity in the city. The founders firmly believe that bringing the teens of Fontaine City together will solve the gang problem, so they have scheduled the Friendship Sock Hop. To their surprise, everybody that was invited has sent in an RSVP! This should be a night to remember!
The Campus Crew has promised peace and harmony for this evening of forming new friendships and working out a truce between the east and west of Fontaine City. You have been invited. This is where your story begins.

My young adult daughters hosted a party and played East Side Story. (They had previously hosted parties and played Ravenwood Masquerade Murder Mystery and Murder at the Grand Gatsby and Panic at the Disco since then.) Just like the two parties before and the party after, everyone had a great time! We started incorporating the bonus games and giving prizes to the best guy costume, best girl costume, first person to correctly guess whudunnit (first person who turns in their investigation sheet with the right answer), and best dance group to each member of the dance group for the bonus dance game. Adding that definitely took our murder mystery parties to the next level, which honestly, I didn't think was possible! I love hearing all the laughter. There haven't been any lulls in any of the parties so far. I recommend hosts use a mic when making announcements and guests use a mic when making accusations. MMP's Biggest Fans on Aug 16th 2019
Everyone had so much fun. The pack made for a easy party, where everyone got involved. Even though not all the kids knew each other, by the end, they were so comfortable with each other. Highly recommend the mini rap game too. Jen on Oct 6th 2018
We are going to use this as a library program and partner with our local bar! We are super excited about it. We did the Luau Murder Mystery last year and it was a huge hit! We are offering this program in June and already have people asking about it!

I used this program at a Retirement Community for an 80th birthday for my mom. It was "the social event of the year"! So much fun and everyone participated. We had 75 guests in attendance. Vicki Stones on Jan 23rd 2018
