from Murder Mystery Dinner Show
The Great Smoky Mountain Murder Mystery Dinner Show is a small and intimate theater, which proves 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: Scarlett Reloaded (New for 2017), Moonshine Murders, The Killbillies, and Frankly, Scarlett… You’re Dead! Guests will be 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.

New for 2017, Scarlett Reloaded 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! And then there’s Scarlett and Melody, the not-so-sweet daughters of Colonel Simpson, who is looking to marry-off his two bundles of joy in Frankly, Scarlett… You’re Dead!

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 desert topping.

Now Showing:
Scarlett Reloaded *New for 2017* Scarlett Reloaded is the sequel to our audience’s all-time favorite show, 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!

Frankly, Scarlett…You’re Dead!
An evening of over-the-top antebellum hilarity where dinner guests will witness a crime, or two, and solve a mystery! The year is 1861 and Yankee spies are everywhere! Keep your eyes open and your pistol ready as Colonel Simpson throws a party in hopes of marrying off his daughters, Scarlett and Melody. Seems the only eligible bachelors are a tad….odd, then of course there is a handsome gambler of questionable repute. Jealousy, espionage, money and dowries…so many motives, so few suspects.

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

Not worth the money you had to pay! The price was as much as the other shows "Hatfield and McCoy, lumber Jack and dixie stampede" which I wish that I have gone too. The food didn't have much of a taste. Wasted money and my time! We should of known when we drove up to the place and saw what kind of building it was in! Don't waste your time!
Tip: Read the reviews and the ones that said they loved it evidently hasn't seen the other shows! Don't waste your money!

My Family had a great time. We thought the actors were very good and professional. The food was also, very good. Our only comment for the food was that the bread should be served with the soup. The clue sheets keeps everyone engaged in the show!!!

"Not as impressed as we'd hoped"
June, 2016
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 have been to several murder mystery shows including ones produced at the college by students. They were far better. The food was below average. Parking is good and access is easy. Other than that I felt this show was a total waste of money.

"GREAT FUN!! But .."

We went to the Moonshine Murders viewing & it was a hoot - of course guest interaction is KEY!! The actors/actresses were absolutely on their game! I wish I could remember their names, but the ladies that played Lily & Roscette were by far our favorites! The food was mediocre, nothing to brag about .. but the show itself is honestly worth the price you pay! HOWEVER .. at the beginning of the show, they do request that you not take photos or videos, which is totally understandable: 1. They have a photographer & 2. They don't want to risk you sharin everything on social media .. but to be fair, if someone in your party becomes part of the show (again, guest interaction), then YES, you would kind of like to be able to record that moment, as a memory. When my mom and cousin was asked to play a part, I asked if it would be ok to just record when it's her turn & I was told that that would be fine. Well .. during the 2nd act, the photographer was standing near our table, & YES, I was recording because it was my cousin's turn to speak .. I happened to make eye contact with the photographer & she mouthed to me to not take photos. Sometime late run the 2nd act my cousin had another speaking part in which, YES, I again recorded. I then turn around to see the photographer bent down telling my mom to tell me to cease taking photos or whatever it was she thought I was doing because "it's against their policy & she's the photographer" .. my mom then informed her that I had permission record when it had been their (my mom & cousin) speaking parts, & that I hadn't used my phone at any other time in the show. THE PHOTOGRAPHER WAS BLUNTLY RUDE. She didn't look happy to be there AT ANY MOMENT OF THE NIGHT, from beginning to end. At intermission I'd gotten up to inquire about the photos, bc we intended to buy a package from the night .. their was a gentlemen ahead of me and 5min prior to the next act she shut her stuff down & told him he'd have to wait till the end of the show .. mind you, this was after she'd already come over the microphone & informed everyone that we could go see her for photos. She was just REALLY VERY RUDE when speaking to him and because of that we ultimately decided to NOT make a purchase from her. The photographer just seemed to have a bad attitude and not personable at all. I really hope that MAYBE this was just an off night for her, but somethin tells me that's probably just her personality. All in all though, it was a great show & somethin I would do again just for the fun/humor of it.
