Join Andy, Aunt D, OP and Barney Fifth for an evening of good-old-fashioned Murder.

Become one of your favorite Mayberry characters and join in on a little singing, a lot of laughing and a little murder! You can participate as much or as little as you would like to with no lines to memorize, just good old-fashioned murderous fun!
