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 Gun With The Wind. 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.

Who Shot the Sherriff - NEW in 2019
Howdy Partner! Welcome to Dodge City! The Wild West can be a dangerous place, so saddle up and keep your eyes and ears sharp. Sheriff Dillon is busy as always wrangling up outlaws, and spending his evenings at Miss Kitty's Saloon. However, a lawman's job is never done. Calamity Patty has rolled into Dodge, no doubt to stir up trouble. Join Sheriff Dillon, Miss Kitty, and Doc Adams as a night full of gunslingers, gamblers, and outlaws takes our gang on a wild ride. Pull up a stump and enjoy 'Who Shot The Sheriff'!

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.

"Great show, good food!"
July 2019
Shows are cute - always based on some old TV series (Beverly Hillbillies, Gunsmoke or Dukes of Hazzard). Like a giant clue game with audience participation. We laughed hard. Food was great. Actors played off audience actions/reactions & were great. Tripster easy to book with & you get a coupon when booking online. We've been there 2 years in a row & will definitely put this on our list for next year too!

"Murder Mystery Dinner Show"
July 2019
I'm so glad that I decided to reserve these tickets. My family and I laughed so much and enjoyed the guessing clue game. The food was delicious. I especially liked the potato soup. I enjoyed seeing my family having a good time together!!! By far my favorite dinner and show that I've been too in Pigeon Forge. Definitely will be using tripster again and will be seeing MMDS other shows. I highly recommend checking this place out on your next visit.

We decided to do this dinner on a whim. I've been active in community theater for years and years. These people put on a really good show. We bought their last two tickets, but our seats were still not bad. A good date evening for couples.

"Murder Mystery and Great food."
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed July 08, 2019
We love going to the Murder Mystery shows. We have been to several in various parts of the country and this is one of the best. You start off with a great meal that taste like good old home cooking (that is if you have a great cook at home). The show is not really drama as much as it is great comedy. They'll keep you laughing the whole time you're there. This is good clean comedy fun that you can take anyone to see, even your preacher. Be sure to see it.

"would have rated excellent but i don't like to sit with people that i don't know"
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5
Reviewed July 06, 2019
the food was excellent at this place and included fried chicken, pork loin, mashed potatoes, green beans, cheese cake with 3 different topping choice, and unlimited soft drinks or tea. souvenirs and snacks are served in the lobby but save your appetite for the dinner. everyone is given a pre story with word searches to find clues to solve the murder. you can use the paper table cloth to figure out your clues. on the back of your paper you write who you think committed the murder, why, etc. for a drawing for a prize. the play is hilarious. audience members are asked to participate on a volunteer basis. there are 3 different shows to choose from on a rotating nightly basis. if we would have had more time, i would have liked to have seen the other shows. there is also a christmas murder mystery during the holidays and if you buy a second show, it is @$20/person. current shows are the killbillies, moonshine murder, and who shot the sheriff. Enjoy!

I was skeptical at first, but this was an awesome play, and the food was quite good. We saw the Beverly Killbillys. There are 3 other plays they do and can’t wait to see them. Good family friendly entertainment. Wait staff very friendly. I definitely recommend seeing.
