An Interactive Mystery Event

Nosh & Knock Off 2019: A Librarian Scorned is scheduled for Saturday, October 26, 2019!

Nosh & Knock Off is the Waterville Public Library's annual FUNdraiser. This event is an extraordinary community experience featuring the entertaining theatrical talents of our amazing local actors and actresses. Always a sold out, one time only performance!

When seemingly mild-mannered librarian, Debbie Decimal, is found dead, her colleagues are stunned. However, as details of her mysterious relationships with the library’s resident literary characters are brought to light, they reveal that Debbie had many dark secrets… secrets that got her killed. Featuring an original script and a talented cast of local actors playing some of literature’s most memorable characters, this interactive mystery will keep you laughing and guessing as you try to identify Debbie’s murderer.

The cost to attend is $40 per person and includes a wide array of delightful libations and refreshments throughout the evening. Tickets are limited and go quickly!
