America's largest interactive murder mystery comedy dinner show. Solve a hilarious murder case while you feast on a fantastic four-course plated dinner. Just beware. The killer is hiding somewhere in the room, and you may find yourself as a prime suspect.
Our show is very different from traditional murder mystery dinner shows. We will hide non-costumed actors in the audience that are pretending to be regular guests. This results in a much more social and interactive evening than with other shows; you will find yourself engaged and involved to a level you never thought possible. Our shows are set during the present day and take place in real time. Over the course of the night, our costumed detectives will uncover clues, interrogate audience members that may or may not be part of the show, and help everyone get closer to solving the mystery.
Much Ado About Nothing is one of Shakespeare's wittiest romantic comedies. Filled with clever repartee and rambunctious slapstick, it explores the many ways that humans can find their destined soulmates — and also how jealousy, gossip, and betrayal can twist the noblest of feelings.
Annie Lareau is the co-artistic director of Seattle Public Theatre, where this season she is directing Vanishing Point. Annie has directed many productions for Cornish, including Nine, Wild Kate, The Children's Hour, and A Midsummer Night's Dream.
Seussical: The Musical ingeniously interweaves a series of classic tales by author-illustrator Dr. Seuss, in which themes of power and privilege, insiders and outsiders, and who gets to tell whose story are played out metaphorically through the interactions of such vivid characters as the Cat in the Hat, Horton the Elephant, Gertrude McFuzz, and the Lorax. Seussical is smart, inventive, tuneful, and appropriate for all ages.
Young Will Shakespeare is in dire need of inspiration. His next play is up against a deadline, and the only thing he's figured out is the title: Romeo and Ethel, the Pirate's Daughter. Then he meets Viola, a smart and beautiful woman who desperately wants to perform on the stage even though it's forbidden. Will is smitten and gets inspired to write the greatest love story the world has known.
The circus of current politics adds new acts almost daily, but a persistent cloud hanging over the country is the tunnel-vision view of our own opinions that prevents honest exchange, compromise and growth.
Luigi Pirandello's 1917 comedy Right You Are, If You Think You Are, offered that the truth of reality is only as strong as the beliefs in our minds. Theatre9/12's artistic director, Charles Waxberg, adapts the comedy for a modern audience at a time when reality is our opinions and the other side is the enemy. You Are Right, If You Think, in its world premiere, tells the story of a suspicious family that moves into a city "some time ago, but not too long" and excites the whole neighborhood to investigate their peculiar lives.
