“We discuss the paranormal events at the museum, and we hear from the paranormal team that actually came in and researched all of them and discovered the reasons for all the weird things that were happening,” Agles-Kempfer said. “Then we’re going to do a murder mystery theater set in a 1920’s jazz club scene called the Meow Club.”
