    IIDA WICHITA: MURDER HIGH REUNION

    Murder Mystery Save the Date

    It will be a reunion you won’t forget…if you live to tell about it!  Join us for a Murder Mystery night of suspense, entertainment and thrilling fun. Murder High Reunion brings the “Class of 1987” back together to reunite with old friends (and old enemies) to see what everyone’s become. Unfortunately for the sake of the reunion, what one of you has become is a murderer. Let’s hope it’s not you.  Come ready for flashbacks to the 80s, excellent food, wicked drinks, and totally rad tunes. This is the night for the Wichita design community, our product representatives, dealers, and design firms to get together and celebrate all the great work we do together!
    Upon purchasing your ticket you will receive an email with your character description, potential wardrobe options, and a run down of talking topics for when your classmates strike up conversation with you, so be looking for that in your email inbox.
