Matriarch Mayhem
“The Stromboli Family Reunion”

July 20 (Sold Out)
September 7

Join Mama Filomena Stromboli and her crazy extended family for a raucous Italian family reunion celebrating her 80th birthday. All in the family are wishing her well, buttering her up trying to get their name in the will, and hilariously in-fighting only the way a big loving Italian family can.

Unfortunately, sometimes the family that stays together, preys together, and murder is definitely a part of the program for tonight’s festivities!

Match your wits against the witless and try to solve tonight’s whacking—err, murder, before the spaghetti sauce hits the fan!

Master Angler Mayhem
“Murder Takes the Bait”

June 15 (Sold Out)
August 24
September 21

It’s the fishing tournament of tournaments, and we’re all enroute to beautiful Lake Iwannabangya where the fish aren’t the only thing that are biting! As everyone tries to prepare for tomorrow’s early morning takeoff, it seems the participants are fishing for trouble rather than for fish.

Will they all make the weigh-in without anyone going overboard—literally?

Figure out the angle on our master anglers and reel in the troublemaker before someone gets away with murder!  (PS. It’s not really about fishing – it’s about ‘whodunit’!)


Murder Mystery Mayhem
“Slay ’em Again, Sam”

August 31
September 14 (Sold Out)
September 28

You and your group are in the audience at DiPlace for Murder theatre, attending their “Dinner with the Detectives” series, a murder mystery show where you dine with the world’s greatest literary detectives while they solve the murder of their mysterious host. When a “real” dead body is discovered in the theatre, the evening takes on an edgy twist as the actors try to unravel the dastardly plot going on behind the scenes.

Unfortunately, one of them is planning an encore that will drop the curtain early on someone’s life. See if you can out-sleuth the sleuths and find the culprit who is slaying them in the aisles… and on the stage!

Metaphysical Mayhem II
“Ghost Chasers and The Depot Ghost!”

October 26

Hauntings have plagued the Oil Creek and Titusville Railroad Depot for ages, and for tonight’s entertainment, they’ve called back the nuttiest group of professionals in paranormal investigation, the Ghost Chasers!

Throughout the evening you will work with the Ghost Chasers searching for paranormal activity and debunking myths. But during their efforts to find the truth about the Perry Street Depot Ghost, one of them is scheming to send a Ghost Chaser on the ultimate chase—one with no return!

We’ll help you figure out “whodunit”, “how” and “why” based on clues that will be introduced in various scenes and repeated during an interrogation of the remaining suspects which will take place after the murder. Of course, feel free to question the characters about any of the events you may witness.

Once the interrogation is over, you will be challenged to fill out your ballot with your guesses. If your super-sleuthing is in good form, or your fabulous Halloween costume is voted the very best, you may qualify to win a prize.

Add into all this the expert improvisational specialists from The Comedy Troupe In All Seriousness and you’ll find we’ve got a killer evening planned!

So don’t get tricked or treated out of a fun and laugh-filled evening, even though one of the spooky characters you see may be the real deal!
