It is a 4-course sit-down dinner. In between each course of the meal, another part of the show will take place. The show is an interactive and improvised comedic murder mystery set in the present day. None of the performers are dressed in costume; therefore you won't know who is a part of the show and who isn’t.
The show takes place throughout the entire room, and performers may actually be seated at your table, so part of the fun from the beginning is trying to figure out who’s involved in the crime and who’s not. Throughout the night, murders and mayhem will occur, hidden clues will come forth and the show's Detectives will help everyone try to solve the crime. In the end, there is a prize package for the Top Sleuth who comes closest to solving the crime.
Every admission ticket includes: An interrogation reception, hors d'oeuvres, fresh rolls and butter, salad, your choice of entree, dessert, and wait staff gratuity for food service. There is also a prize for the Top Sleuth at the end of the night!
Water, coffee and iced tea are included with your ticket. There is a full bar available for additional drink purchases and nightly drink specials.
You do not need to participate in the show, but are encouraged to if you like! However, since the performers are not in costume, your fellow audience members may try to interact with you as they work to uncover the culprits!
