Winner of the Best Dinner Theater in NH for 2008.
What is Interactive Mystery Dinner Theater?
Unlike a traditional night of theater where you watch a story unfold
on a stage before you, Interactive Mystery Dinner Theater actually
incorporates you into the action while you dine. This means the
actors will move among you, have conversations with you and in some
cases even make you part of the action. Have shy guys and gals in
your party? No problem. Just let us know who they are and we’ll
make sure that these guests will remain anonymous and well-fed observers.

How do people use
Interactive Mystery Dinner Theater is frequently used as entertainment
during fundraisers and other private events like bachelor/bachelorette
parties, milestone anniversaries and birthday celebrations. And
because we’ve assembled a group of incredibly funny and creative
people, we’re also able to adapt our mysteries to fit the
theme of any corporate event - such as sales meetings, award banquets,
and holiday parties. So, how you choose to use an interactive mystery
is completely up to you!
on the lookout
Every now & then, a rogue character has been
known to even sample a dessert or two!
Just how engaging are the mysteries?
The last thing our actors want is to see your guests yawning in
their seats. So to protect against the “boredom factor”,
as well as preserve our actors’ fragile egos, our producers
carefully select comedic scripts that are not only sensitive to
the nature of our audiences, but will bring our actors the accolades
they love to write home about. And for good measure, we even throw
live music into the mix.
Now, just because most of our mysteries can be described as PG-rated
entertainment, that doesn’t mean that we don’t keep
you and your guests on your toes until the very end. In fact, we
go that extra mile to keep you interested in the action by selecting
crimes that typically only 10% of our audience members are able
to solve correctly.
Just how long does it take to solve a murder?
Designed to provide entertainment throughout an entire 3-course
meal, our average dinner program lasts 3 hours. However, we can
easily customize our program to accommodate events of varying lengths
and are able to adapt to alternate meal plans (no 's" on meals)
such as an evening with a buffet, appetizers, or just desserts.
Hint: Expect the unexpected
With all the improv talent we’ve assembled,
sometimes even we aren’t able to foresee what’s coming
Have crime, will travel?
Yes, we travel to just about anywhere. Hotels, restaurants, and
private homes - it doesn’t matter as long as the space is
large enough to accommodate your guests, our cast & crew, and
has electrical outlets available for our use.
How many people does it take to run a
Our cast & crew requirements are dictated by the script and
vary according to the style of the program. In addition to our talented
musical accompanist, a typical show requires 5 to 9 actors based
on the number of guests in attendance. And regardless of how many
actors are used, at least 1 producer and 1 stage manager is always
present to ensure the performance runs smoothly.
Hint: Bring Your Tissues
Comedy this good brings even the most somber among us to tears!
Okay, I’m sold! What’s
my next step?
If hosting an evening of crime is just what your next event begs
for, all that’s left to do is figure out which mystery you’d
like performed and lock in your performance date. And with enough
notice, and the occasional edible bribe, we are able to accommodate
just about any performance date.
