2008: History Mystery: The Sinister Secret of the Sand in the Salt Shaker
A once in a lifetime event took plae at the prestigious Onondaga Historical Association Museum! The cream of Syracuse's high society, historical experts, the media, and even a Hollywood superstar unveiled of the contents of a mysterious chest discovered in the secret room of a 19th century James Street salt baron's mansion! All did not go as planned! Secrets and revelations took those present on a suspenseful journey far into the past to solve a mystery of today!
The OHA History Upstagers provided a terrific whodunit. . . Crime! Clues! Detectives! Interactive Fun!
It was hysterical, hilarious, and historial. After all, it was written and direted by Scott Peal.
This history mystery spanned the "sands of time and deceit" from 2000 BC to 2008 AD.
It was a killer!
Coffee House Mystery: Death with Chocolate!
In February, 2007 the newly formed Onondaga Chocolate Society hosted their first event, a sold-out theatrical production based on scenes from history in which the power of chocolate, the food of passion, has played a deadly role. Chocolate Can Be Dangerous!
Highly entertaining , the performance was dark, rich and full of nuts! Guests sampled a wide variety of chocolate delights , sipped coffee or tea and savored this unique murder mystery! Guests were warned: everyone was expected to eat, drink and be wary-- it's was a killer !
