DINNER THEATER MURDER MYSTERIES
These are interactive mysteries that fully immerse the audience in the world of the story. The characters engage guests as they arrive, making them part of the evening’s events. During the act breaks, the characters serve food and dessert, all the while keeping the mystery going by improvising with the guests and each other, challenging the patrons to try and solve the mystery.
Los Angeles, 1932. The stock market is three years down the drain. People have more than their share of sorrows and, under federal law, not a glass to drown them in. Thankfully, there are places like the Limbo Club—illegal watering holes where otherwise law-abiding folk can enjoy a quiet drink and a little entertainment.
Except instead of a few naughty numbers from the club’s sultry singer, guests are given a front row seat to murder. The club’s owner has just turned up dead, and it’s up to Detective Johnny Lombard to solve the case before the police arrive and shut the Limbo Club down.
“Speakeasy, Die Easy” is an homage to the hardboiled detective fiction of the 20s and 30s. Contains some expletives and innuendos.
Christmas Eve, 1953. The staff and guests of the Rosedale Hotel are snowed in. No one knows where to find the hotel’s manager, Milton Rine…until the staff members open their Christmas gifts, that is. Looks like Mr. Rine has gone all to pieces.
Was it one of the guests? An angry employee? Or was it one of the ghosts said to haunt the rooms of the Rosedale? It’s up to P.I. Michael Archer to solve the case before the killer can strike again. But the enigmatic detective has a secret or two of his own.

Has the mummy risen to take revenge on those who have desecrated his tomb? Or is this a case of old fashion murder?

“Attack of the Creeping Menace (In 3-D)” is the long-awaited merging of the parlor room murder mystery and the 1950s giant bug movie. It boasts a cast of colorful characters and a series of “scares” that make it a perfect Halloween production. Requires sound effects and some physical effects. Contains mild expletives.
