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.

Not sure what will happen at Murder Mystery Dinner Show? Let us tell you what to expect.

You’ve purchased your ticket, taken your seat, and are enjoying a delicious meal. But now what?!

Step 1: Roles are distributed.

Our actors will be in character, floating around the room and speaking to each of the guests. They will be assigning 8-12 people as ‘suspects’. These people will have nametags and a few costume pieces such as sunglasses, feather boas, or hats. Keep your eyes out for them—one of these people will be the ‘murderer’! Those who are not assigned as ‘suspects’ should be ready to play ‘detective’. Their role is to be paying close attention to what’s happening around them and asking questions of our suspects during the investigation times. 

Step 2: The Show begins.

This is where the real action starts to happen and the ‘murder’ will take place. Don’t worry—no one will be injured during this ‘stage death’! There are three acts in each show. This gives you three chances to watch the performances carefully and ask questions before you have to solve the crime. However, don’t forget your other objectives: eating your meal and having fun! Courses and laughs are served throughout the show.

Step 3: Solve the crime!

Now here’s the important part: figuring out ‘whodunit’! Spend some time discussing with your tablemates who you think had the motive, the opportunity, and the means to commit the crime. It’s important that who you name meets all three of these criteria because there is only one correct answer in each show.
