What is a Murder Mystery Dinner?

A murder mystery dinner is a type of dinner theater in which guests cooperate with each other and interact with performance cast members in order to solve a fictitious murder scene. Our murder mystery dinner shows are most often comedic in nature and can be customized to a wide range of audiences. 

The goal of a murder mystery dinner is for participants to gather clues provided throughout the plot and use them to deduce the identity and motive of the “murderer.”

What Happens
at a Murder Mystery Dinner show?

In our fully-immersive show, guests will be welcomed into the world of the mystery by costumed actors, who will explain to them the rules of the game, and assign suspect roles.

The roles played by your guests are usually those of suspects who may have committed the crime. Props or light costuming may be offered to the guest, such as hats or glasses, to help them get into character while allowing the other guests to identify their new persona.

Most often guests will work together as “dinner detectives” to solve the mystery. They will have goals to accomplish throughout the show to figure out which suspect committed the crime.
