from Murder Mystery Dinner Show
The Great Smoky Mountain Murder Mystery Dinner Show is a small and intimate theater, perfect for the up close and interactive show it provides. Our traditional, restaurant-style murder mystery plays out all over the dining room, so every seat is the perfect seat. There are three sidesplitting, parody-style shows played in repertory each week: Moonshine Murders, The Killbillies, and (NEW for the holidays) Murdering Mister Scrooge. Guests are given the opportunity to participate in the mystery, either by becoming an audience actor or by solving the murder using the clue packet provided at each seat.

Your ticket includes our “laugh ‘til you die” murder mystery show with a Prize Package for the Top Sleuth of the night, as well as a three-course dinner with choice of soup and cheesecake for dessert.

Murdering Mister Scrooge
Welcome to the South Pole, ya’ll! Santa relocated the whole shebang down South, where the folks have a flair for Southern hospitality. Meet Suzy Snowflake the local diner owner and Frosty the Tow-Man! Meet Bobbie Cratchett, Mr. Scrooge’s loyal accountant who is hoping to get a special someone for Christmas. Join Ebenezer Scrooge and see if he gets one more chance to change his cold-hearted ways before it’s too late. Watch all the Christmas comedy and hi-jinx unfold in this tale of a Christmas Carol…the southern way

Moonshine Murders
The Lukes have been runnin' shine for years in the Sevier County hills. The unscrupulous Boss Boar and his henchwoman, local law officer Roscette P. Ketrain, have pursued them for years to no avail. But Sevier County has now become a prime tourist destination with increased traffic, making it harder for the Lukes to outrun the incompetent law woman. It is for this reason that Uncle Bessie has decided to sell his highly sought after, top-secret moonshine recipe to the local distillery at the bi-weekly Boss Boar Celebrity Speed Trap Concert featuring Elvis. The only problem is that Uncle Bessie hasn’t discussed the sale of the family business with the rest of the family.

The evening of the concert has the whole county vying for the top-secret moonshine recipe and is full of murder, mayhem, and of course - moonshine. So grab your hats and hold on to your seats 'cause it's gonna be a bumpy ride in Sevier County tonight!

The Killbillies
Back from Beverly Hills to start a new life in Pigeon Forge, meet the Clampett Family. Jed, the patriarch of the clan, has designs on a new life and a new wife after some financial and zombie problems in California. Ellie May and Jethro are up to their own brand of mischief and hijinks, while Granny misses her California life as much as she misses her motorcycle gang. All this and more in a brand new take of your favorite characters in the Beverly Killbillies!

Seating is assigned when you check in at the theater.

Five ladies and myself went to the dinner and show. The show was was very entertaining and the actors and servers were great, however, the food was not that good. The green beans were cold and the chicken was dried out . All in all had a great time. The food would not stop me from coming back.

The food was good and the show keeps you involved. It was hard to understand sometimes with the actors on the same level as the guest . They do involve the guest and some are chosen to be table actors. If it had been on a stage the performance would have been much better. One a scale of 1-10 I would give it a 5.

While it was fun to watch, I think it would have been better if it were on a stage. This way the sound travel can be reached through out (it was sometimes difficult to hear/understand).

Decided to try the murder mystery dinner show. Reviews were mixed. Well get there an hour beforehand to fill out the clues you need to help you solve the mystery and enjoy some pre dinner chat with people at your table. I loved it. the food was excellent and the service was stellar as was the acting. great show funny, and time flew by and well worth it. Would do this again. Plenty of food...good show for teenagers as well as adults.

The atmosphere was great from beginning to end. The entire staff made you feel welcome from the moment you walk in the door. Our waitress, Kim, was very attentive and always made sure we had everything we need. The cast of the show really got into character and had wonderful voices. The audience got involved which made it more fun. Overall great experience and we will definitely be back for another show.

Reviewed November 20, 2018 NEW
The show is entertaining; the actors are talented with fine singing voices, and they do a lot of fun audience engagement. There is no stage; the show plays out on the dining room floor, and the actors are right next to the diners. The are no clues to the mystery’s solution in the script of the show; you discover the murderer by solving puzzles on the program you receive when you are seated. So don’t expect Agatha Christie. The food was good for the price paid, but not amazing. All in all, an enjoyable evening out.

The actors were amazing and very talented and great voices. The service for the food was awesome and the staff was very attentive. The potatoe soup was very good and hot, not so much for the main course. The chicken was over cooked and everything was cold and we think there was gravy, not sure what that was, not good. We enjoyed the murder show not the dinner and we think overpriced.
