#5 Murder-Mystery Dinner

A detective arrives to determine who the killer is, inevitably laying blame on one of the audience members. Tablemates must work together to prove their innocence and find the real killer through an interactive performance full of hilarious suspects and eye-catching costumes, all the while dining on the included three-course meal and taking advantage of drink specials.
