Marriage Cast 2024.jpg

Marriage Can Be Murder

Welcome to the Roman Festival of Love. Three goddesses have gathered to conjure a groom for a young maiden. During this evening of fun and fright, a sea of potions and curses will summon three unworthy grooms because the first two perish before your dinner is served. Jupiter, your godlike host, will preside over the ceremonies and Cupid, his stooge, is all too anxious to be the groom. By the time the third groom is conjured, they'll be two victims. Who spiked the spells?

Haunted High School Reunion

It's 2024, and Belfry High is hosting their 20th reunion for the graduating class of 2004. The only problem is, it seems as though the invitations were sent beyond the class of 2004, and perhaps beyond the grave! Is someone here celebrating 100 years since graduation? What about that hippie? Did that guy just step off the Titanic? They definitely did not graduate with you. Well, whoever these ghouls are, they seemed to have brought some high school drama back from the dead. It seems like everyone is still holding grudges from years ago, and someone may be left fighting for their afterlife!

Our 2024 Halloween mystery dinner show will be available for your private event or company party beginning October 1st.
