Posted March 9, 2007

The Idaho Museum of Natural History will host its third annual Museum Mystery Dinner Theater March 22-24 from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. To raise funds for its exhibits, the event will offer dinner, drinks, a show and dessert.

Tickets are $75 per person and space is limited, so the public is encouraged to call 282-6168 soon for reservations.“It is our only fundraiser,” said Dave Mead, exhibit design manager at the museum, “and without it we couldn’t offer the programs that we do.”

The show is “The Case of Hidden Hunklebutt” or “Director in Disguise.” The plot is that the museum’s biggest donor wants to hire the famous, but reclusive, H.P. Hunklebutt as the new museum director. Hunklebutt is famous for his many published scientific papers, but nobody knows who Hunklebutt is. Participants are challenged to discover who the true Hunklebutt is so that the Museum can secure a large donation.
