Amateur detectives will be sleuthing around the Homestead in Midway Saturday night for Park City Performances' fall fund-raiser, "Homicide at the Hot Pots." The charity event is being sponsored by the historic resort to benefit the Egyptian Theater.

Written by Raye Ringholtz and PCP General Manager Ed Britt, "Homicide at the Hot Pots" is set in the 1920s and based loosely on Park City history.Guests wishing to participate in the thriller will get a secret clue to hide or divulge. Other clues will be revealed during the course of the evening as the tale of intrigue and violence unfolds.

"This mystery will be difficult to solve," said Britt. "Guests will need to keep a sharp lookout for clues. They will also need to use their powers of deduction."

The mystery fund-raiser will begin at 6 p.m. at the century-old country inn. A contribution of $60 includes dinner at the Homestead, a detective's role in the whodunnit and one clue. The detective who solves the crime will win a prize.

Reservations for the evening of suspense and entertainment can be made by calling 649-8087 or 649-7153 in Park City. Tables for eight are available. Seating is limited.
