Murder Mystery Dinner Colorado SpringsIt's Saturday night, and you're seated at a small table with some of your closest friends. Where were you when the elegant woman dropped dead during your dinner?

The scripts are lighthearted enough to keep the laughs flowing as you solve the mystery. Once the meal has run its course, you get the opportunity to share your own theory of who killed the lady in the red ball gown. Whoever has the best and most accurate solution wins a prize package.

If you're visiting with a big group, you can book a private show for a more intimate mystery, complete with personalized scripts tailored to your specific group. The theater's actors are highly trained and have worked for major companies like Disney, Warner Brothers and Universal Studios.
