This weekend I had the pleasure of attending a dinner show at the Adam's Playhouse. We had called ahead to Adam's Playhouse a week prior to let the team know that we would have a vegetarian with us, as requested. Upon arriving at the playhouse, you mingle with the in-character-actors and explore the venue looking for clues and revealing backstory... More

We took about 45 team members here on a Friday afternoon. Everyone had an amazing time!! Staff is extremely attentive and show was very interactive. Food is catered in and is so-so, but they fed 100 people in an organized and timely manner. Recommend large groups going!

This is for anyone, for all ages, for adults, parties, etc! The actors draw you into their characters, keep it light, fun and funny! You can be a whiz at figuring out whodunnit? Or you can enjoy the people, laughter, food, and drinks! There is also usually a tarot or palm reader along with the event for an additional thrill!... More

Talk about funny! This takes place in an old mortuary (yep that's right). The fun starts immediately, when the actors and actresses start mingling with guests before the show. There is a tiny gift shop and bar available for those who drink. The dinner was served buffet style, limited options, but good food. The real star of this is the... More
