Bastrop Opera House hosts Murder Me Always, dinner theater - with a twist! During a very bad performance, an actual murder takes place off stage. The Director is shot. The "fake" play comes to a screeching halt and a "real" murder mystery begins. A "murder mystery murderer" is on the loose and has struck again. What will happen? Will the murderer get apprehended? Come see this show to find out for yourself.
Do something spooky and learn a little something while you're at it. If you were to go searching for the fate of early Bastropians, the final resting place frequently cited is Fairview Cemetery, the historic 36-acre graveyard along SH 95 located on a hill overlooking the city. Partake in one of the two docent- led walking tours offered on October 23. Tour start times are 3PM and 4:30PM and will last about 60 minutes each.
