Breakout Box: A Case of the Mondays
Monday, November 20th, 7:00 PM
You’ve just arrived at school and find that your teacher has written the date on the board.  It says “Monday...”--but how can that be?  You’re 100% sure yesterday was Monday, so it can’t be Monday again...right?  You ask your teacher if they’ve made a mistake, but they just give you that “teacher look” and tell you to sit down. Last night a strange box appeared on Miss Lucy’s desk with a note explaining that unless her students can unlock the box, every day will be a Monday for the rest of the year.  There’s a timer attached to the box.  Are you ready to save our school year, or will we suffer the curse of the Mondays?

Ages 12 and up. Register HERE.
