Murder mystery play on Queen Mary

LONG BEACH - After a five-year hiatus, interactive mystery theater is coming back to the Queen Mary."A Murder on the Queen Mary" opens this Saturday and continue through June. The mystery begins when guests are informed the Queen Mary is haunted by Julie Rose, a famous local singer who was murdered in her dressing room 70 years ago. Her killer was never apprehended and her ghost still roams around the ship to this day. In an attempt to rid the Queen Mary of her presence, the case has been reopened and it's up to the audience to help solve the case. Guests will travel throughout the ship in search of long lost clues to help solve the murder. The play was written by Long Beach resident and Cal State Long Beach theater alumnus Baron Mosely. "Every time I think I'm done producing these murder mystery shows, I somehow get pulled back into it," said Mosely. "It all started back in college when we did a mystery party for one of my theater classes. It was one of the most fun times I had during college. That was over 20 years ago. The rest is history." When not busy crime-solving, guests can enjoy a three-course dinner, access to a full bar and a rare view of Long Beach from the Queen Mary. Tickets are $49 for the show only, and $99 for the show and dinner from one of the three restaurants on board. For tickets and reservations, go to
