Sherlock’s Mystery Dinner Theatre
“Back to the ‘80s!” It’s time for the Franklin Pierce High School class of 1985 reunion. Alumnus Jennifer Grey McFly, having been the assistant principal for 17 years, is now vying for the principal position since the last one had been killed in a bizarre peanut crushing accident earlier in the week. McFly is sure that this is her time, only to be thwarted by the return of the 1985 championship team quarterback, whom the school board is appointing as the new principal. The show features a host of characters from “Footloose” to “Flashdance”. Feel free to come retro in your best Madonna or Don Johnson look. (This is a PG-13 show-no young children or infants allowed.) $52. 7 p.m.-9:30 p.m. nightly. Columbus Marriott Hotel, 800 Front Ave. https://sherlocksmysterydinnertheatre
