Who We Are:

Sherlock’s Mystery Dinner Theatre® is a non-profit theatre company that operates out of Columbus, Georgia, since 2008. Sherlocks has successfully produced hundreds of shows in front of over 14,000 patrons. Sherlock’s scripts are written by Dr. Kate Musgrove, professor of theatre (ret.), and her husband, JJ Musgrove, both whom are theatre professionals and educators with over 40-years of experience between them. All productions are fully scripted and use a two-actor format with 10-21 audience participation parts.

PG-13 Content:

The primary reason why Sherlocks decided to write their own scripts was because the majority of the available murder mystery dinner theatre plays contained excessive profanity, overtly sexual situations, and “bathroom” humor. While this type of comedy is perfectly fine for a night club act, it isn’t consistently funny in all settings. Our shows have been successful because we maintain a PG-13 type of approach that appeals to people from all walks of life.

Great Rental Rates:

Sherlock’s rental fees are traditionally much lower than other companies around the U.S. offering similar services. This will save on your bottom line, especially if you are trying to put on a successful special event or fundraiser. Our standard rental rates are $150 for the first performance and $50 for each subsequent performance. Details will be discussed during the contract phase. Rent our murder mystery dinner theatre scripts and have a great time.

Only Two Actors Needed:

Sherlocks’ scripts employ a two-actor format that allow groups maximum flexibility. Use only two actors to save on expenses or up to eight (in some scripts) to increase participation! Each script also contains 10-18 audience parts so that you can involve the whole crowd in your show.
