Actors perform a live family-friendly comedy show all around you as you eat your dinner and enjoy the action! This is dinner with fun and unpredictable outcomes. The actors follow a script and theme, but love to spontaneously involve some of the audience or say something unplanned. Although they love playing with the audience, they are always respectful of those who just enjoy watching. Get to know the characters as they work their way around the room. Spot a crime. Identify the culprit when the authorities arrive. Appropriate for all ages! Our box office is open Tuesday-Saturday 11am-4pm. Our shows are every Thursday, Friday, and Saturday night. Call us to purchase tickets or to book special events!

The food was pretty rubbish but I'm not sure you should go to this with the food as a key requirement. The fun is the show.

I really enjoy going to the Vaudeville. I have been a few different times and have always enjoyed the food and the show. I like how the cast interact with the audience and involve them as well. I am glad that they have moved into their new location. The other place was very dated and super small. The new place... More

Nice friendly atmosphere! They seated us at the very front next to the stage. It was the perfect place to be! The waiters brought out drinks and rolls then a salad. While we were chowing down...the actors came to our table asking us question and we asked them questions...the murder mystery has already started and your wheels are turning as... More

We did the dinner show 2 years ago for my birthday. The food wasn't good, I knew that before we went because I had read reviews. We did enjoy the show so with that said, I think it's worth going one time for the show.

I'm a glass half full kind of girl. Try to usually be positive.Unfortunately in this case, I am positive I will never return or recommend this dinner theatre. Actors are very pleasant and do a good job with what they have, however,what they have is terrible. There is no actual solving of a murder mystery. It is random skits that... More

This is NOT highbrow entertainment. Our experiences with dinner theater led us to dress far better than we needed to, but we didn't feel out of place. Everyone from the ticket lady to the waitress, to the entertainers who came around and mingled with us pre-show was very friendly! For one ticket price, there was a menu selection - my... More

I'm shocked this place is in business somehow. Must get a lot of tourists from out of town. We had never been, and will definitely not return. The food was not good, the waitress brought us the wrong drinks multiple times, the actors seemed to be making up a script (with little talent) and kept saying "someone please bail me... More
