We have traveled and performed our comedy murder mystery dinner theatre entertainment wherever the client has asked for a professional troupe with professional sound/lighting equipment.
Our performances have evolved over the years into true musical dinner theater, including singing, dancing and tons of comedy. In additon, our shows emphasize audience participation.
Hunt Mysteries is currently doing shows open to the public at Boccias D'Italia in Ogden, and at Spaghetti Mama's, Jordan Commons, in Sandy, Utah.

Hunt Mysteries has more than 35 comedy murder mystery scripts after 19 years of doing dinner shows. All the scripts are original.
What to Expect
Typical Gig Duration: 120 - 150 minutes
Hunt Mysteries actors mingle with guests for about 20 minutes, setting up the comedy mystery and introducing all the characters to the guests.
Actors then do a 15 to 20-minute opening scene. All the actors are on professional body mics to enhance the enjoyment of the performance.
After the opening scene, the guests finish up their dinners while the actors mingle more with guests. Then the actors go back on mics and do the main part of the show, which includes song and dance numbers and tons of comedy. The comedy murder happens and then the guests are asked to help solve the mystery. They are invited to question individually all the suspects (the actors). After about 15 minutes, the guests turn in their answers. The actors then do the comedy finale to show who did it, how and what was the motive. Then a few prizes are awarded to top sleuths.
