Event Details



Join us on Friday the 13th for a fun, entertaining night of mystery and interactive drama where monsters and villains will reign supreme and secrets will be revealed.

Every century, famed monsters and villains from throughout time, sharpen their fangs and drop their 21st century identities and get together with the only beings that can truly understand them – their fellow monsters and villains!  At this year’s Monster Mash-Up at Salisbury House, everyone can truly be themselves without worrying about interference from the “normal” world. 

The evening begins as you enter the house through the secret tunnel to enjoy appetizers and cocktails. Then you will move to the grand Common Room for dinner. Suddenly something goes terribly wrong! Could there be a “normal” amongst the monsters and villains?!  Who is it? Is he or she sitting right next to you while you enjoy your dinner? Help solve this whodunit at the Salisbury House mansion as you join in by playing your assigned part in the drama.  There may even be a secret mystery challenge to be solved!    

Ticket price includes the show along with a four-course sit-down dinner including appetizers, salad, entrée, dessert and beverages. Cash bar.  Prizes will be awarded for the guest voted as “Best Character” and the guest who correctly solves the secret mystery.
