Theme & Corporate Murder Mysteries

Murder Mystery Dinner

New! Theme Dinner Parties

Comedy Theater continues to search out and create the most innovative Corporate Entertainment for your event – Our theme dinner parties combine comedy, music, lots of audience participation and a cast of historical CharActors who dine with the audience. These events have been done for large groups in banquet halls and small groups in large homes – our newest "Classic Dining Moments" even have historically accurate (customized for today's palate) menus for you or the facility to re-create.

Here are a few of our Theme Dinner Parties that we have performed in the past…

Large Groups - Theme Dinner Parties (40 – 400)

Dinener TheaterBig Mugsy's Speakeasy

You'll need to have your password ready when you enter Big Mugsy's Speakeasy, or "Mumbles" won't let you in! This is an audience participation show featuring a musical comedy revue with Gangsters, Flappers and YOU! After lunch the "Mugs" and the "Molls" treat you to nonstop comedy, music and fun in this roaring 20's musical revue. You might get raided by the cops and even be asked to play a character in the show!

The Victorian Feast
"Is not additional eating an Englishman's ordinary idea of Christmas day?" asked Charles Dickens. But Charles never imagined anything like this! Our Victorian Feast is replete with period decorations and costumed actors, musicians and Victorian Carolers performing throughout the meal.

The Revolutionary Feast

Dinener TheaterThe Revolutionary Feast is a spoof of the traditional American officers mess dinner set in New England at the end of the War of Independence. The premise demands that all in attendance are officers in good standing in the Massachusetts Light Infantry. This is reinforced by the distribution of various ranks to each individual present. This ranking system becomes the foundation for the hilarity that ensues as the entire meal is run according to the "Rules and Regulations for Officer Decorum While at Mess." These rules, humorously enforced by the commanding general and his staff create the basis for a variety of events that neatly weave their way through the service of the meal.

Finnegan's Wake

Come and drink deeply of the laughter, song and dance that characterize a proper (we use the term quite loosely) Irish Wake. This uproarious interactive comedy dinner show is just the thing to lift your spirits – and rest assured there will be plenty of spirits to go around as glasses are lifted in honor of our dearly departed. Mr. Patrick James Finnegan (Tim's brother ;)

Small Groups - Classic Dining Moments (15 – 60)

Banquet on R.M.S. Titanic with Captain Edward John Smith

R.M.S. Titanic, the final First Class Dinner with Captain Edward John Smith and guests, on the Atlantic , on Sunday April 14th 1912. Opulence was a feature of the elaborate menus for the wealthy first class passengers on the doomed liner. Your dinner is recreated from the actual menu served aboard the mighty ship.

Create a banquet for King Arthur & The Knights of the Roundtable

Our dinner with King Arthur and his Knights of the Roundtable was held in the splendid Great Hall of Winchester Castle in AD 530. The famous table still resides here.

Banquet for Robin Hood and Maid Marion

Robin Hood fell in love with Maid Marion at first sight, at the May Day games in Nottingham Forest . They celebrated with dinner in the local inn: the 'Five Nuns' Tavern situated in Croscombe, Nottinghamshire. The year was 1189 yet you will be amazed how well they ate in those far off days .

Create a banquet for William Shakespeare

This celebratory and imaginative dinner with William Shakespeare and his devoted wife, Anne, took place in the White Swan Tavern (which still stands) in Stratford upon Avon , in May 1583

An Erotic Dining Experience

This month we launch a new, rude dinner party pack called Erotic Dining . This provides a liberal evening of fun, food and frolic for eight close friends. The emphasis of the evening is on a classic buffet followed by a generous serving of risqué party games. The menu is almost entirely aphrodisiac, the games are popular, tried and tested. 

Create a dining experience with Buffalo Bill & Annie Oakley

Buffalo Bill and sharpshooter Annie Oakley were guests of Gustave Eiffel at the opening of the Eiffel Tower . At this celebratory dinner at the top of the Tower our colourful duo and other famous guests were served this classic French dinner.. ..

Dinner with The Mafia! - Scarpato's Restaurant, Coney Island, 1931

This dinner is set at the height of prohibition. This was the heyday of the Mafia. There were over four hundred gang related murders a year in Chicago alone at this time . Your dinner is in the comparative safety of a cosy Italian restaurant on Coney Island but beware Machine Gun' Jack McGurn is on the loose. So watch your back!


Guests are welcomed into the function room which is decorated to suit the theme. Live entertainment continues throughout the meal in the form of actors, music and specialty entertainers such as magicians, jugglers, dancers and... well whatever suits the theme.

The cast of actors are eating with the guests and is recommended to have food and setting to suit the period.

Guests can be encouraged to dress in costume - anything to set the environment.

Why, we even once did a sort of Zoological Theme Dinner Party in an underground aquarium at Sea World in San Diego . Is your company/venue looking for a Politically Correct show? Or does your group prefer something a little wilder? Is there a particular time in history you would like to travel to?

Let us know and maybe we can cook up the right Theme Dinner Party for your group's tastes!
