Murder-mystery dinners begin innocently enough—diners arrive to mingle amid drinks and quiet conversation. Soon, however, the dining room erupts into a dramatic spectacle when the host announces that someone has been murdered. A detective arrives to determine who the killer is, inevitably laying blame on one of the audience members. Tablemates work together to prove their innocence and find the real killer through an interactive performance full of hilarious characters and eye-catching costumes, all the while dining on an included three-course meal and taking advantage of drink specials.
The show's humor and horror is generally designed for a PG/PG-13 audience, though because each show is improvised, the actors can easily tone down the subject matter if the audience skews younger. See the locations page for details on local show dates and times.
The Murder Mystery Company
It's not every day that a dinner with friends risks a murder accusation. That's a good possibility for the guests of The Murder Mystery Company, who find themselves in the middle of a investigation for which any one of them could stand accused by a hapless detective. During each interactive dinner, the company's troupe of professional improv actors ignites the dining room with entertaining outbursts and hilarious one-liners in an effort to divulge clues and redirect guilt. Meanwhile, guests work together to sniff out the real culprit, which is definitely not the school janitor in a mask. Birthday parties, bachelorette celebrations, and corporate events can also get in on the interactive action by scheduling a private murder-mystery dinner.
