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: Who Shot the Sheriff, We're Off to Kill the Wizard, and Moonshine Murders. 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.

Now Showing:
Who Shot the Sheriff
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!

We're Off to Kill the Wizard - Premiering March 2020
Journey back over the rainbow with Dorothy and Toto to a land you may have heard of. See all of Dorothy's old friends reunite for a new and exciting adventure in this magical night of twists and turns. The Wicked Witch and the Wonderful Wizard are both back in action, and who knows what will unfold. There's no place like a front seat to the witty and whimsical, wonderful Wizard's return!

Note: Seating is assigned when you check in at the theater.

"Good ole country fun"
March 2020
The show was a bit corny but cute. The actors were great and I loved the audience participation parts. The food was ok. Would’ve like brownie or ice cream for dessert. Also maybe ham instead of pork. Otherwise staff was friendly and the show was fun.

Small venue dinner theatre. The food was average, as was the performance. A little pricey for what you got, but fun

Tip: This theater is in a strip center. The show is performed throught the theatre and around the tables. The ceilings are low. The acting is pretty average, but all those in attendance had a pretty good time.

"My favorite show in the area"
November 2019
I've been to most of the big shows in Pigeon Forge and the Who Shot the Sheriff Murder Mystery Show was my favorite. The skits were funny and the actors even sang! The food was just ok, but all of the staff member were very friendly. I had a great time. I'd love to see another one of their shows.

If you are looking for a good meal and some comedic entertainment- this is the place. The food was good. The wait staff was attentive and friendly. The actors were funny and improvised as needed with audience participation (several audience members were chosen to participate with props and scripts). What to expect: Soup and beverages are served upon arrival (doors open about an hour before show starts). After Act 1, your entree is served. After Act 2, your dessert is served. And then Act 3 is performed and the murderer is revealed. Lots of fun! Definitely plan to come back next time we are visiting Pigeon Forge.

Reviewed January 12, 2020
We were returning after seeing the show about 8 years ago when we had a wonderful experience to this year on January 1, 2020 when it was extremely disappointing. We saw Who Shot the Sheriff. The show was not a mystery. Even the 8 year old at my table figured it out. Sad actors, story, costumes, singing?.... I will add that the service was excellent, the food was good but I could visit many restaurants if I want good meal. Extremely disappointed! Do not waste your time.
