from Murder Mystery Dinner Show
The Great Smoky Mountain Murder Mystery Dinner Show is a small and intimate theater, perfect for the up close and interactive show it provides. Our traditional, restaurant-style murder mystery plays out all over the dining room, so every seat is the perfect seat. There are three sidesplitting, parody-style shows played in repertory each week: Moonshine Murders, The Killbillies, and Gun With The Wind. Guests are given the opportunity to participate in the mystery, either by becoming an audience actor or by solving the murder using the clue packet provided at each seat.

Your ticket includes our “laugh ‘til you die” murder mystery show with a Prize Package for the Top Sleuth of the night, as well as a three-course dinner with choice of soup and cheesecake for dessert.

Now Showing:
Gun With The Wind
Gun With The Wind is the sequel to our audience favorite, Frankly, Scarlett… You’re Dead! It is four years later when we find Melody Simpson and her Uncle Avery planning a cotillion of sorts. Now that Scarlett is out of the picture, Miss Melody has her pick of all the eligible suitors this side of the Mason-Dixon Line. Sadly, the only eligible suitors are the two Pinkney boys. Buffoonery, mayhem, and murder are sure to ensue as the Pinkney boys fight for the honor of Miss Melody Simpson.

Moonshine Murders
The Lukes have been runnin' shine for years in the Sevier County hills. The unscrupulous Boss Boar and his henchwoman, local law officer Roscette P. Ketrain, have pursued them for years to no avail. But Sevier County has now become a prime tourist destination with increased traffic, making it harder for the Lukes to outrun the incompetent law woman. It is for this reason that Uncle Bessie has decided to sell his highly sought after, top-secret moonshine recipe to the local distillery at the bi-weekly Boss Boar Celebrity Speed Trap Concert featuring Elvis. The only problem is that Uncle Bessie hasn’t discussed the sale of the family business with the rest of the family.

The evening of the concert has the whole county vying for the top-secret moonshine recipe and is full of murder, mayhem, and of course - moonshine. So grab your hats and hold on to your seats 'cause it's gonna be a bumpy ride in Sevier County tonight!

The Killbillies
Back from Beverly Hills to start a new life in Pigeon Forge, meet the Clampett Family. Jed, the patriarch of the clan, has designs on a new life and a new wife after some financial and zombie problems in California. Ellie May and Jethro are up to their own brand of mischief and hijinks, while Granny misses her California life as much as she misses her motorcycle gang. All this and more in a brand new take of your favorite characters in the Beverly Killbillies!

Seating is assigned when you check in at the theater.

"Entertaining show decent food"
January, 2019
We attended the show during our NYE trip to Gatlinburg. We seen several of the shows in Pigeon Forge and were looking for something different.
We were glad we got there about an hour early. This allowed time to go through their seating assignment process and plenty of time to complete the “clue” puzzles they give you. Show and cast were entertaining and one of the audience members they had selected to participate was hilarous. Show is pretty cheesie as a spinoff of the Dukes of Hazzard but thats where some of the comedy comes from. Food was decent but I know its challenging to prepare a large quantity of food to serve all at the same time. Server was very friendly.

"Moonshine Murder Mystery"
January, 2019
This is the second time my family went to this show. Personally I could not give it a higher rating for adults to see. It is a class performance, the audience is involved and the actors do a fantastic job. Food service is also excellent. If you are traveling to Pigeon Forge area and seeing all the "dolly' shows please get out of the same routine and add this one to your list. You will not be disappointed.

Tip: You may sit with others, don't worry everyone is having a great time. And the venue is small enough that all seats have a great view.

Decided to try the murder mystery dinner show. Reviews were mixed. Well get there an hour beforehand to fill out the clues you need to help you solve the mystery and enjoy some pre dinner chat with people at your table. I loved it. the food was excellent and the service was stellar as was the acting. great show funny, and time flew by and well worth it. Would do this again. Plenty of food...good show for teenagers as well as adults.
