Guests Help Solve Gwinnett Historic Courthouse Murder Mystery

Gwinnett County Parks & Recreation will partner with Page2Stage Productions and Stacey Sparks Events to present “The Haunting on the Square,” a chilling murder mystery dinner event at the Gwinnett Historic Courthouse. Leading up to Halloween, the event will take place 7:00-9:00pm on Fridays, including October 8, 15, 22, and 29.

Guests will explore designated areas of the Courthouse with paranormal guides. When spirits surface from a 100-year-old murder, it will be up to visitors to solve the mystery at the Courthouse. (Please note that all events and historical depictions for this murder mystery are fictional.)

Prior to the murder mystery event, the Gwinnett Historic Courthouse will serve a buffet dinner consisting of a penne pasta bar with options of grilled chicken, beef meatballs or grilled vegetables, as well as marinara or alfredo sauce. Italian salad, fresh parmesan, garlic bread, chocolate mousse dessert shooters, and tea and coffee service will also accompany the dinner.

This event features improvisation from Page2Stage performer favorites including Jason Caldwell, Kate Rasnick, Ariel Stewart, and Ilene Miller. Jonathan Strickland also joins the cast, the senior writer from and an Atlanta improv artist. Beth Peters, assistant director of Ghosts of Georgia Paranormal Investigations, consults on the project to create realistic elements of ghost hunting and encounters.

Admission is $30 per person for Gwinnett County residents, $50 per person for non-residents and is suitable for ages 16 and up. Reserved tables for 10 are also available for $250 (a $50 discount). Advanced registration is required. Gwinnett Historic Courthouse is located at 185 W Crogan Street in downtown Lawrenceville.
