Become the Detective!

Become the Detective!

January 22, 2019

Students can step into the world of comedy at Sleuths Mystery Dinner Shows, where they’ll become the detective and put their problem-solving skills to work to solve a crime—and have major amounts of fun.

This live, interactive theater experience will immerse students in a hilarious whodunit storyline, all while enjoying a delicious meal and dessert. The adventure begins by entering one of three intimate theaters where students are greeted by Sleuths’ outrageous characters.

But not so fast! Students must watch out for anything suspicious they notice and interrogate their main suspects.

While eating, each table team formulates insightful (and not so insightful) questions for the live interrogation. Detectives move around the room, allowing each table to ask their questions and uncover additional clues. After students have gathered everything they think they need to solve the mystery, they’ll submit their guesses to detectives, who will unveil the culprit and award fun prizes to the successful sleuths who guessed correctly.

Sleuths Mystery Dinner Shows is a great way to introduce students to theater, with professional actors who perform a side-splitting presentation filled with opportunities for audience participation, comedy and improvisation. Want to add more to the experience, beyond solving the crime? Request a Q&A session after one of the daytime shows to make the performance even more educational for student groups.

For younger students, Sleuths offers Sherlock’s School of Inspection, Detection, and Deduction. Sherlock Holmes has assembled a team made up of some of the greatest sleuths in the world at his new “school for detectives.” Students must solve the crime when the school’s most prized possession turns up missing on the first day of school; even teachers become suspects!

Students might even be chosen for a cameo role in the longest-running mystery dinner show in Orlando. The two-and-a-half-hour experience will provide many memorable moments and keep students laughing long after the show is over.
