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 four sidesplitting, parody-style shows played in repertory each week: Scarlett Reloaded, Moonshine Murders, The Killbillies, and Frankly, Scarlett… You’re Dead! 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.

Scarlett Reloaded is the sequel to our audience favorite, Frankly, Scarlett… You’re Dead! Moonshine Murders stars the Luke family who have been runnin’ shine in Sevier County but are finding it harder to evade the law with all of the tourists in town. The Clampetts are the stars of The Killbillies who have relocated to Pigeon Forge, where Jed is looking for a new life and a new wife! And then there’s Scarlett and Melody, the not-so-sweet daughters of Colonel Simpson, who is looking to marry-off his two bundles of joy in Frankly, Scarlett… You’re Dead!

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 desert topping.

Now Showing:
Scarlett Reloaded Scarlett Reloaded is the sequel to our audience’s all-time favorite show, 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!

Frankly, Scarlett…You’re Dead!
An evening of over-the-top antebellum hilarity where dinner guests will witness a crime, or two, and solve a mystery! The year is 1861 and Yankee spies are everywhere! Keep your eyes open and your pistol ready as Colonel Simpson throws a party in hopes of marrying off his daughters, Scarlett and Melody. Seems the only eligible bachelors are a tad….odd, then of course there is a handsome gambler of questionable repute. Jealousy, espionage, money and dowries…so many motives, so few suspects.

Seating is assigned when you check in at the theater.

Wonderful show! We go to the murder mystery show almost every time we come to Pigeon Forge. We took our 10 yr old and 7 yr old boys this time and they loved it too! Mrs. Kitty was a wonderful waitress and took great care of us and our boys. Wonderful food, service and show!

"Very disappointing"

The acting was bad. The food was mediocre at best. There are many other things to spend your money on in this area. Skip this one.

The entire night was great! The show and the actors were great. Our server Kitty was awesome, funny and lots of fun!! The food was very good and a lot of it. I especially appreciated that we weren't gouged with drink and picture prices like some other places. My 2 teenagers enjoyed it also and they are hard to please. Can't wait to go back and see one of the other shows.

We went with a group of friends - just so you know what you’re in for this is not a big dinner production like many others in the area. It’s in a strip mall and a very small setting. The food was what you’d expect, our server was great and the show was decently entertaining. It’s a fine way to spend an evening - nothing to write home about, but fine.
