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: Murdering Mister Scrooge, 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:
Murdering Mister Scrooge
It's Christmas time again in the town of South Pole! Join us at Suzy Snowflake's diner as some merry Christmas mayhem ensues. Spend the evening with Suzy, Frosty, Scrooge's Bookkeeper Bobbie Cratchett, and mean old Mister Scrooge himself on a holiday adventure you'll never forget! The night may light the way for Scrooge to find the true meaning of Christmas, but will it be too late? Come join us for a yuletide disaster in "Murdering Mister Scrooge".

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.

"My favorite show in the area"
November 2019 NEW
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.

Went they seat you, your give a paper to fill out. You need to unscramble words, decipher a code, and figure out who shot the sheriff and why. You do this as your eating and watching the play. The actors are performing around your table as you eat. Then they collect the papers before the end of the show to see who has the correct answer. One person wins a prize for the correct answer. The food was very good, the play was really good. They had 3 different shows to choose from. I would go back to see another one next time I'm in the area. Good clean fun to take kids to also.
