Murder Mystery Synopsis:
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.

This was so much fun. Playing Grease with a murder and a touch of Happy Days gave us all plenty of ad-lib room.
