UPDATE: This show’s run has been cut short and is now scheduled to end on Monday, March 29.
The Abbey (Facebook | Website) will be presenting a new interactive and immersive walking tour in Thornton Park running from March 23- April 11.
The Office! A Murder Mystery Parody; Who is the Scranton Strangler centers on a murder that takes place in Scranton, Pennsylvania, and Michael Scott, Dunder Mifflin’s “World’s Best Boss” needs the help of the audience to solve the case. Scott has been bored during the quarantine so he put together a walking tour in the hopes of catching the Scranton Strangler and making some friends along the way.
The true-crime walking tour will take groups of up to 35 people through five locations in Thornton Park to meet characters like Jim, Pam, Dwight, and more, along the way. Guests are encouraged to use their detective skills to find clues, plant evidence, and lock up the Scranton Strangler.
