Recently had a business event here And found it to be Fun and different. The building is very interesting. Friendly local talent. Great place to bring your friends or family for something different to do. The food was surprisingly good, Not something you would typically find At a place like this.Great example of a place to support your local arts.

this place was a cherry on the sundae of our weekend getaway to Denver. I laughed so hard my cheeks hurt. Food was pretty good considering how many have to be fed though the dessert was a bit stale. Even so, the entertainment was well worth the money ! Highly recommend!

We attended the Steamtrunk Mystery night and enjoyed ourselves! I had never been to an interactive dinner theater before, but it was fun and engaging. The vegetarian plate they made for me, a lightly crusted fresh vegetable pie, was delicious. The actors were great and could easily improvise when needed. I would certainly return for a different show. Tip: Get... More

We had a fun time at the zombie show. They had a decent diner but the show was a blast and everybody got involved. I highly recommend this place.

Kind of corny but cute. Nice evening in a small intimate envioronment. If you are uptight, do not go. If you can appreciate some clean humor in a comfortable intimate setting you will probably enjoy it. It is not Broadway but it is fun.

We just did "The Bernice Murders". Everyone in our group really enjoyed it. The guy who plays Eddie Melvin is a hoot! You'll have fun even if it's just you and a friend, but if you can round up a larger group, even better. My advice is not to take solving the crime too seriously; the real point is just... More

Great evening--something different! Scavenger hunt, bingo, conga, great entertainment. We took our 9,8,and 5 year old grandchildren with us and they loved it. The "adult humor" was clean, mostly generation related. They included the kids-the youngest did the drawing, the oldest read a clue to the audience. A highlight of our trip.

We laughed, we cried, we even did the conga. The mystery part is great but the jokes are better. They always do a great performance.

My 12 year old daughter and I were visiting the Denver area, and as we had a late flight we looked for something to do for the evening. We found the mystery playhouse online and purchased tickets on their website and got a great discount 2 for the price of 1. I have been to a number of dinner murder... More
