ABOUT ART OF MURDER

Art of Murder is TCT’s annual fundraising event. By making your plans to attend, you ensure Topeka Civic Theatre continues to provide high quality and accessible entertainment for our community, life-long learning opportunities for youth, and inclusive experiences for volunteers to share their unique skills. This year will mark our 10th anniversary of bringing this interactive murder mystery to the Topeka community. Past events have been held at Washburn University, NOTO, Fairlawn Plaza, Downtown Topeka and other venues. We also use this fundraiser to celebrate individual members of the Topeka community as well as local businesses. Our Artistic Director, Shannon Reilly, will integrate special guests and sponsors directly into the performances! Last year we featured our very own comedy improv group, Laugh Lines.
