Our Murder Mysteries are a delightful evening of entertainment and fun for groups of a minimum of 20 people. The event can be enjoyed with or without serving dinner.

As the story begins, we move from room to room in this historic home. Other players join in and suddenly there is a murder! Now we all become detectives to try to solve the mystery. At times members of the audience are given scripts and become part of the action. “Who done it”? The audience is enlisted to help with the sleuthing.

Is there a Sherlock Holmes or Miss Marple in your group?

Some of the murder mysteries currently available are:

  • Murder at the Class Reunion (for groups of 20 – 35)
  • The Death of Oliver Stone (for groups of 20 – 35)
  • Murder on Vine Street (for groups of 20 – 35)

Our creative cadre of murder mystery lovers come up with new crimes every year so call to find out what’s afoot at the McClendon House this season!
