The Dinner Detective
Running year-round, The Dinner Detective thrusts guests into a mirthful murder mystery where any of their fellow diners could be responsible for the evening’s dastardly events. A troupe of improv actors convincingly blends into the crowd, making it difficult to determine who is and isn’t a part of the show. While feasting on such entrees as chipotle-roasted pork tenderloin and tropical chicken confit, show-goers scan their eyes throughout the dining room and attempt to suss out the identity of the killer.

Midtown Arts Center
Completed in 2010, Midtown Arts Center, formerly Carousel Dinner Theatre, was converted from a movie theater to a cultural and performing arts center, where an array of actors and entertainers regale audiences in the year-round murder mystery dinner show, The Dinner Detective, as well as intimate performances of Broadway hits such as The Sound of Music and the upcoming Shrek the Musical. Midtown Arts Center’s four venues accommodate events of all stripes: the Ballroom and Grand Hall both welcome private and corporate events, the Dinner Theatre grants enough elbow room to dig into hearty dinners from its menu, and Theatre One's Young Audience Series excites youngsters with children’s shows and promises to abolish all pop quizzes.
