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 time."
April 2019 NEW
We were looking to book a date for a murder mystery in Pigeon Forge. The site of the show showed nothing available, reserve direct had some still available. We received a code that we had it reseved through them. When visiting the show they new our name and also our special alergic menu item. We were unsure of booking this way but their communication with the venue was excellent and we had a great time. I would definitely use them again! The show was great. It was a lot of fun and they included the audience to play parts of it. The food was good and the service was excellent.

"Very good show!"
April 2019
Very fun show. Very good food, and I liked how they served the food at different times, so you weren't trying to eat and watch the show. The cast included the audience in the show, which was a lot of fun. This is a small theater, so there is no bad seats in the house. It was fun trying to solve the mystery. Chelsea was a wonderful waitress.

The dinner was good. Arrive 30 minutes prior to the show so that you have time to work on the clues to solve the murder mystery. This group does 3 different murder mystery themes and we experienced "Who shot the sheriff?"

Moonshine Murders was hilarious! Drew Hatcher and Rainy Green are probably some of the funniest people I've ever seen. Loved the Dukes of Hazzard spin off. Food could be a little better but not bad. All around good time though.

My family of four ventured to the Great Smokey Mountain Murder Mystery Theater to watch The Moonshine Murder. The cast welcomed visitors while in costume at the check in desk. They have a nice back deck overlooking the river you can enjoy while you wait. Once seated, you receive a fun mystery sheet with puzzles and clues. We had fun working together to figure out the puzzles. Dinner was ok, but the show was a lot of fun. The cast interacted with the crowd and that made it even more enjoyable. Definitely a good time!
