Solve a Mystery, Have a Great Dinner and Lots of Fun at Sleuths Dinner Show
There are many possibilities for night time entertainment in Orlando. Over the years dinner shows have proven to be very popular with Orlando vacationers, and one of the best is Sleuths Mystery Dinner Shows which provides two and a half hours of scripted mystery, improvisation, audience participation and dinner. Let’s take a look at what you can expect to experience at these shows.
Comedy and mystery are the themes that run through the shows presented at Sleuths. The website for the theater lists 14 different shows, which are rotated with about five different shows being performed on different nights each week.
What are the shows all about? Without revealing “who did it,” here are some of the plots of the shows. In “Iron Mansfield’s Fox Hunt Banquet” you and other nobles are invited by Lord Mansfield for a fox hunt banquet in his mansion. The butler brings you into a lavish banquet room and amidst the “feast” one of the characters meets a sad fate, and it is your job to solve the mystery.
In “Squires Inn” you are in a bus that has been touring in the north of England but your bus breaks down in a remote country village. You enter the Squires Inn for food and lodging and get involved in a mystery that involves an old pensioner who is hiding a treasure. It is done in a hilarious way and once again you have to use your skills of deduction to solve the crime. The other shows combine the same ingredients, a far away place, funny characters, mayhem and a mystery that must be solved. After you witness the “crime” you get to enjoy you dinner with unlimited drinks. While you are dining you can think about the evidence, analyze and then ask questions to the suspects and finally you can make your “accusation.” If you successfully find the culprit you will be given a prize. It is a format that is a lot of fun and has proven popular with theater goers for close to thirty years.
For your dinner you will be served hors d’oeuvres, green salad, dinner rolls and crackers with a special cheese spread. The menu choices include prime ribs, Cornish hen and cheese lasagna. There is also a vegetarian meal available, and all of the meals are served with unlimited wine, beer and soft drinks.
Dinner shows in general and Sleuths in particular are good places for group outings. Sleuths offers special group rates for parties of 15 or more. Sleuths also offers birthday parties for kids with a special show designed for children aged 6-12. The kids become the investigators in their own detective agency. The detective agency is named for the birthday child and they are all treated to a dinner of pizza, ice cream and unlimited drinks.
