It’s MURDER I Tell You! Murder Mystery Dinner Theater! Celebratin’ in Branson!

Almost Famous Murder Mystery Dinner Theater – another stop on my “Celebratin’ in Branson” trip! This is just one of many exciting activities you can find in Branson Missouri!
Branson is a world unto itself…No one can ever know Branson by a brief description….You must travel through it to be acquainted and inspired by it!

100_3486OH… what serious trouble we can get into in Branson. We head out to dinner and a show that nice warm evening… was a bit hungry! Lordy! Next thing you know, we are eating a great meal and someone in the theater gets MURDERED! You heard me… we were pretty much glued to our seats, because NO ONE leaves the scene of a murder. Everyone had their own idea who the killer and their motive was.

Just shocking! Lovable innkeeper, Pat Daniels, is hosting Hollywood newlyweds, Stanley and Jolene Pitt’s honeymoon trip. You know this was to be a fun, relaxing evening, but things don’t go as planned when someone mysteriously dies! Oh look… they brought us dessert! Check out the food here…

murder meal The chicken breast was huge and those green beans were awesome. The whole meal was filling and quite tasty!

Oh… I sidetracked didn’t I? So Pat calls in her paranormal therapist, novelist Angela Fletcher, to help figure out ‘whodunnit’. Now Angela is a bit hyper I guess you can say, but she works her way through all the evidence and suspects with help from the audience. By now you are probably wondering “What in the WORLD?

murder marriage

OK! OK! To be truthful, we attended Almost Famous Murder Mystery Dinner Theatre where they were presenting “Marriage is Murder”.  It really was a fun evening and I got to talk to some of the cast after the show.

Q – Do you create these shows yourself?

Helena – Yes, they are all original productions.

Q – What do you do to come up with these ideas for shows?

Helena –  We goof off a lot!

Deron – Its like every 10 minutes we come up with something and say Oh I got a better idea… I got a better idea. It has a snowball effect, then the actors  take that and it gets even more ridiculous.

Q – How long have you been doing the theater productions?

Helena –  The theater shows for 5 years, this particular production for 3. We have 4 different shows a year. We will be changing this show in just a few weeks.

No... I am not going to explain why Deron is in the nighty! He does look cute!

No… I am not going to explain why Deron is in the nighty! He does look cute!

Q – What kind of experience have you had in… say like acting, writing, etc?

Helena – Well, we both do. We have both been onstage our whole lives. I have done everything from pageant queen to magician assistant. I also have 2 books that are published.

Q – Deron, I am gonna ask you… were you a pageant queen, too?

Helena – Yes he was! and she laughs!

Deron – Oh I am sure you can google it and find it! I have been in theater since I was 9 years old. I am not a writer, I am just an idea guy. (Helena states he is also a comedy guy)

Q – Do you have a caterer come in?

Helena – Yes we do. We change the menu for every production. We serve the meal and we get to clean up after.

Deron – We push the envelope here in Branson.

Helena – We don’t do anything offensive…

Deron – Unless you have a dirty mind!

Q – What do you like to say about your audience?

Deron – Tonights crowd got into it after the break. Thats what we like… the crowd getting involved and a heckling some.

Helena – That’s what we like, We are not going to bring you onstage and embarrass you… we want and encourage you to embarrass us!


This evening was really enjoyable and I could talk about it a lot more. Just not going to do that because you need to see it to understand what I am talking about. So WHO DUNNIT”

I’ll NEVER tell!
