About the Show:

  • When you arrive, you will be met at the door by one or two of the evening's "suspects" who will help you find your seats, show you to our cash bar, and get you ready for the mystery about to unfold.
  • When the first scene starts, keep a watchful eye open for clues, and jot down anything that look suspicious.
  • As the evening progresses, and the plot thickens, you will open a "clue dossier" which contains, among other things, special "bribe money" to use to entice the "suspects" to give you better clues.
  • Between scenes, our cast (always in character) serves you a delicious four course dinner. This gives you a chance to question each of the suspects about key elements of the murder.
  • At the end of the evening we collect your "solution forms" and give a prize to the person who best solves the mystery. We also give a prize to the more stupi...uh, well...creative answer!
