They are “interactive” shows designed to be performed during a meal. Unlike stage theater, the actors perform around your dinner table and in-between the courses of your meal. It has been described  by NBC as a live game of Clue.

There is something about the Murder Mystery Dinners program that everyone loves.  The teamwork, the competitive element the race to the top, the costumes and the excitement of participating in murder is really fun. As a team building event, each table works as a team to collect clues, question suspects and solve the mystery, and all the while our performers are keeping them laughing and enjoying themselves.

We have a wide range of mysteries from customized plots that are developed specifically for your group and event, to shows that can be performed anywhere for anyone.
