You are invited to a swashbuckling murder mystery set in the tropical waters of the Caribbean! Captain Mugwash and his pirate crew are shipwrecked on a desert island where they find a buried treasure chest. But during a drunken celebration on the beach the Captain is discovered slumped over the chest, murdered! Please join us to find out who buried the ol’ Sea Monkey!
Ship’s Cook (his stew is made from real Stewart!) Costume suggestion : Wearing a smart apron and chef‟s hat that you plundered off another ship‟s cook, you almost look like a proper chef. However, the supply of not-so-fresh ingredients that you keep hanging from your belt says otherwise. That and the rolling pin you carry around with you (that isn‟t real blood on the rolling pin, is it?)
Ship’s Carpenter (she’ll work your wood in exchange for food!) Costume suggestion : You keep your white blouse tucked into your tight brown trousers so it doesn‟t get in the way of your hammering. A belt at your waist holds the essential tools for wood-working, offset by a sword and scabbard swinging at your side. A skull-and-crossbones bandana keeps your hair out of your eyes while you‟re working.
Captain’s Daughter (you can hoist her up the flagpole!) Costume suggestion : As the only female pirate on the crew, your britches and shirt are a flattering green pastel shade, and your boots are long (sometimes thigh-high!) with lace ties. You carry your cutlass wherever you go, and your bandana and eye patch are uniquely white.
The Stowaway (she’s quite feisty for someone so lady-likely!) Costume suggestion : Your lady-like elegance is all that‟s left after being a stowaway for so long. Your flowing purple skirt has been torn short and your lacey blouse is ripped in the most revealing places. Still, you don‟t need to look regal to be regal, but you do still wear a large gold locket around your neck that holds a family portrait.
First Mate (his bright pirate clothes make people wish he’d stayed in the closet!) Costume suggestion : If the colours clash horribly, you‟ll wear it! Your pink shirt and yellow knee length britches are carefully divided by an electric blue sash. Spoilt for choice, you prefer a bandana that sports all the colours of the rainbow. No sword for you (they‟re too pointy) but you do carry a telescope for spotting faraway lands, and stroking!
Serving Wench (she’s everyone’s port in a storm!) Costume suggestion : Your ultra-tight corset dress shows off your curvy assets to boost crew morale (amongst other things!) but it does, unfortunately, take a while to remove. Your small-heeled boots help you dig in if things get too slippery on deck and the wooden spoon you carry around is useful for stirring, and smacking naughty crew members!
The Hostage (he’ll take your gold before you’ve gone cold!) Costume suggestion : Smartly dressed in your preacher‟s gown and collar, you‟ve always got the good book with you to help convert the unbelievers. And if you can convert them, you also carry a small silver cup where they can make donations to pay for the sins they‟ve committed so far and put any down-payments on their future sins!
Ship’s Surgeon (so much as a cough and he‘ll lop it off!) Costume suggestion : Your white apron and shirt are splashed with blood from all the handiwork you do. With your small medical briefcase of „tools‟ you are ready for any surgical emergency (and quite a few culinary ones too!) Occasionally you‟ll consult your pocket watch to time just how long a crew member is in pain.
