Get your friends together for a tricky Halloween treat – an Edgar Allan Poe themed Escape Room at Stage III. Poe is missing from his study, and the police suspect foul play. Groups of up to 6 players have 45 minutes to search for clues, solve puzzles, and figure out where the author has gone.
Game sessions are available from Oct. 13 to Nov. 4. Ticketing for the Escape Room is only done online at stageiiitheatre.org. For the complete Poe experience, make an evening of it with Stage III’s show “An Evening with Edgar Allan Poe” followed by an Escape Room session. Stage III is located at 904 N. Center in Casper. Supported in part by an award from the Wyoming Arts Council, through funding from the National Endowment for the Arts and the Wyoming State Legislature.
