1.) What is Interactive Dinner Theatre?
The New York Times calls interactive dinner theatre, "A party game for grown ups in search of more spice in their entrees." Professional writers, directors and actors have combined their talents to create a script which allows you to play a character or try to solve a crime - all while enjoying a delicious dinner in a great setting.
2.) Do the actors appear on a stage?
There is no stage, nothing separating you from the actors. It's the difference between watching a movie and being in one. You can interact with the characters.
3.) Are the seats equal?
The actors sit among you and walk around the room so wherever you sit, you are right there in the middle of the action.
4.) Can I play the part of a character?
Depending on the show (see Question 2), you will be asked whether or not you want to take a part. If you are playing a part, a detailed character biography will be supplied. Sometimes you will be given a prop to help you get into character and even an odd line. All that is required of you is that you have fun.
5.) When is dinner served?
Dinner will be served throughout the evening and there will be breaks in the action, even breaks for you to question the characters and search for clues.
6.) How long does it last?
Most of our shows begin at 7:30 and end at about 10:00. If there's a trial or lynching, then it goes on a bit longer.
7.) What should I wear?
Many audience members can, and do, dress for the shows and this is encouraged (however it is by no means mandatory)! The most important thing is for you to be comfortable and have fun. You can participate as much or as little as you wish during the show.
