Description

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 four sidesplitting, parody-style shows played in repertory each week: Gun With the Wind, Moonshine Murders, and The Killbillies. 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.

Gun With the Wind is the sequel to our audience favorite, Frankly, Scarlett… You’re Dead! Moonshine Murders stars the Luke family who have been runnin’ shine in Sevier County but are finding it harder to evade the law with all of the tourists in town. The Clampetts are the stars of The Killbillies who have relocated to Pigeon Forge, where Jed is looking for a new life and a new wife!

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.

Now Showing:
Gun With the Wind Gun With the Wind is the sequel to our audience favorite, Frankly, Scarlett… You’re Dead! It is four years later when we find Melody Simpson and her Uncle Avery planning a cotillion of sorts. Now that Scarlett is out of the picture, Miss Melody has her pick of all the eligible suitors this side of the Mason-Dixon Line. Sadly, the only eligible suitors are the two Pinkney boys. Buffoonery, mayhem and murder are sure to ensue as the Pinkney boys fight for the honor of Miss Melody Simpson.

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.

This was a smaller dinner show but the food was good and the show was very funny and it kept the crowd entertained. It was nice how the act was around the people watching the show.

Tip: We're glad we went. Didn't like the numerous zombie references. I find, even though zombies are fictional, the concept is gross. Kind of ruined it.

"Hilarious!!"
September, 2018 NEW
We saw the Moonshine Murder show. It was acted out very well and was truly hilarious!! It is good for all family members. The food was great too! We had the traditional plates but they also have other options such as vegan & diabetic meals. I would definitely recommend seeing one of the shows here. Great job to the cast members, waiters, & cooks!!

We saw Beverly Killbillies. Before it starts they give you a paper with puzzles to solve for clues. You don’t have to, but it was challenging and fun and you use the clues to make your guesses about who dunnit, how and why. All the right answers go in a drawing for a very nice prize. The play was good. Jethro/Jedidihah was hysterical! My husband doesn’t like plays and he enjoyed it. My teenagers are .... well teenagers, and they both loved it. We all recommend it! Dinner was not only very filling but actually good. If we could afford it we’d go back to one of the other shows while we’re here. There are three choices. We will go back next time we’re in town.

My buddy and I booked this show for our wives as this is not really my type of entertainment. However, I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised. I really did enjoy the comedy in the show and the food was very good. I will say as far as the food, the price is a little expensive, but I feel the overall experience made it a fair price.
