Now Showing:
Moonshine Murders: The Lukes have been runnin’ shine for years in the Sevier County hills. Boss Boar and his henchwoman, local law officer Roscette P. Ketrain, have pursued them to no avail. But now Sevier County has become a prime tourist area, increasing traffic and making it harder for the Lukes to outrun the incompetent law woman. So, Uncle Bessie has decided to sell his highly sought-after Top Secret Shine 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.

Whodunnit Lucy?: Everyone’s favorite redhead is up to her old tricks and involving the whole gang and a few new characters! Welcome to Club Tropicana where Ricky Bacardi is getting ready to debut his brand new show! Ricky has enlisted the help of his friends and neighbors, Fred and Ethel Hertz, and famous Vaudeville singers, The Gabor Sisters, to star in his new show, “Babaloo Broadway!"

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!

Frankly, Scarlett...You’re DEAD!: The year is 1861. Yankee spies are everywhere! Colonel Simpson cordially invites everyone to celebrate the upcoming marriages of his daughters, Scarlett and Melody, at the ancestral plantation home of the Simpson family. The Colonel is delighted about the impending nuptials, and will be even happier when he actually finds two young men willing to marry the girls. The only single gentlemen around seem to be the Pinkney boys, and let's face it, they are a bit odd. Of course there is a gambler of questionable repute, Brett Rutgers. Who will suffice for the daughters? Join us to find out.

Seating is assigned when you check-in at the theater.

"Not as impressed as we'd hoped"
Reviewed June, 2016 NEW
To be honest, my husband and I did not enjoy this show too much. We weren't able to see the show and were uncomfortable the entire time due to high tables with tall chairs. It was also hard to find, as Google Maps has the wrong directions to the address for the show. They claimed to have been trying to get that changed, but there should have been some kind of warning on the Murder Mystery Dinner Show page about the directions being wrong. The acting was ok, but nothing amazing. The food was bland and cold. I was not impressed with it in the least after paying $50 a person for uncomfortable seating and cold, bland food, with mediocre service. There were only two waitresses for the entire show and it was completely booked the night that we went, so they had to run around the entire room helping people. Honestly I wouldn't go back, and I would suggest a different dinner show because of all of the issues we ran into with it.
Tip: Uncomfortable Seating, bland food, inaccurate directions to get to the show

We were seated on very high, uncomfortable bar stools in the back of the room. This seems to be a low-budget dinner show--nothing like other dinner shows we've seen. Not worth the almost $100 we spent for the two us.

"Need to make some changes for the older age group."
Reviewed October, 2015
I would have like the show a little more if I could enjoyed sitting where I was sitting. They put us on a high table with bar stools that were very uncomfortable for as long as we had to sit in them. My boyfriend is 79 years old and could hardly get up on them. I have back issue's myself and had trouble. Did not enjoy the show since the sitting was so bad. We finally asked for a regular chair for him and it took the guy 10 minute's to find one for him. We were all the way in the front of the room where you come in and could hardly see or hear what was going on. I personally would get rid of the high table's and stools.
Tip: Don't know what to tell them hope they get better sits then we did. For as much as you pay to see the shows you should have comfortable sitting.

Lots of adult entertainment ( shows etc,)and plenty for the kids to do. Close to Gatlinburg and a once in a lifetime drive through Cades Cove. Just as relaxing or as action packed as you want. Great rooms and quite location.

"Frankly Scarlett your dead"
Reviewed July, 2015
The first question I asked was the show decent for an 8 year old. They said yes. The boobs of the ladies was all hung out and the jumped around a lot. They would rub the men faces into their boobs the whole show. One man went under Scarlett dress to hide. I found nothing funny about this show and I did not want to stay and watch it but for the money it cost we did. When it was over we tried to talk to someone about the show and there was no one to talk to. They give you a phone number to call and no one ever answers. You can leave a voice mail , which I did 3 times, but no one will ever call you back! Waste of time and money! Do not go see this show!!

"Not up to Pigeon Forge Standards!"
Reviewed April, 2015
This was not what I expected. The venue was in a strip mall, not a theater. It was very small and dirty. The actors and actresses were subpar and their costumes were downright awful. They overall quality was extremely poor. It was like being forced to watch a low budget film, having paid for a blockbuster. While there was plenty of food, it did not taste well. We had a group of 20 and everyone agreed that we needed to hit the donut shop on the way home, as we were all still hungry.
Tip: It's a low budget set-up, and not worth the money.

Reviewed March, 2015
I enjoyed my experience to the Murder Mystery Dinner Show. The plot kept you guessing and the interaction with the actors and audience throughout the performance was an added bonus. The food delivery was broken up into 3 times; appetizers, main course and deserts with scenes in between so plenty to do to keep you moving and guessing. Was a little country and corny but enjoyed it with the flavor of the area.
Tip: GPS take you to the wrong address, correct street (located on Teaster Lane) but took you to the wrong street #. It is located in a shopping center.

Drink prices were not bad if you wanted to purchase alcohol! Over all amazing experience and worth the money!

"Murder Mystery Theatre"
Reviewed January, 2015
We've wanted to go to a Murder Mystery type dinner show for a long time. We decided to do so for our anniversary. It was nothing like we expected. The theatre was much smaller than we expected. We liked the interaction with the audience, and the food was generous and good. The puzzles were neat. If you figure all the puzzles, someone is supposed to pick them up and have a drawing for different gifts, We were on the outskirts and no one picked up our papers. Overall, we were overall disappointed.
Tip: Make your reservations early if you want to participate with the actors and be down in the mix of things.

"Audience Inspiration"
Reviewed January, 2015
The Murder Mystery Dinner Show was an inspiration for all members of the audience. Being an inspiration signifies that we all have the ability to act out a part of the show along with the cast members. I had a lot of fun playing my character and got laughs from the rest of the audience when I used that Southern drawl to the utmost of my ability considering I am originally a Yankee. There was so much fun just being a part of it all. The murderer was hard to determine - believe only one out of the audience came up with all the right answers to the clues. It was definitely a show to see and experience.
Tip: It is interactive and audience participation is a must. Of course any one in the audience can volunteer to become a part of the cast.

"FUN INTERACTION"
Reviewed January, 2015
This is a great dinner show if you enjoy, as we do, to interact with your fellow diners and with the actors. The 'who done it' themed shows remind me of the old 'agatha christie' type dinner theatres and the actors are great about getting the diners involved in the show. We enjoyed the show, the theatre and dining area need to be larger and more updated because it was crowded and not a lot of room for the diners and actors to interact. Myself, I would pay a little more for a more updated and less crowded atmosphere. :)

My wife and I enjoyed the show very much. The food left a lot to be desired; the sides were good, but the entrees (pork loin and chicken) were meh. HOWEVER, the engaging cast, clever script, and friendly, attentive wait staff (hi, Miss Kitty!) saved this from being a 3-star review. The price is fair, given the quality of the show (we saw "Frankly, Scarlett"). This is a unique experience in Pigeon Forge, and I recommend it - just don't have high expectations on the meal. Otherwise, grab a ticket and have some fun!
