The Dinner Detective at The Courtyard Downtown

The Dinner Detective Interactive Murder Mystery Dinner Show - Select Your Desired California Location

Eat a four-course sit-down dinner and help solve a mystery all at once. The show is an interactive and improvised comedic murder mystery set in the present day. None of the performers are dressed in costume, but instead are dressed just like everyone else; therefore you do not know who is a part of the show and who isn’t. The show takes place throughout the entire room, and performers may actually be seated at your table, so part of the fun from the beginning is trying to figure out who’s involved in the crime and who’s not. Throughout the night, murders and mayhem will occur, hidden clues will come forth and our Detectives will help everyone try to solve the crime, with a prize for the one who uncovers the murderer! Show time starts around 6pm and tickets start at $60.
