Murder on the Agenda premiers Jan. 27

Murder on the menu

Murder on The Agenda will take your dinner experience to a whole new level, with a classic "who done it?"

Murder on the Agenda is and isn’t dinner theatre.

There is a dinner. And there is acting. Yet it takes the concept further. Guests will get to interact with the plot and the suspects. They’ll need to ask questions, solve puzzles and collaborate. All to come up with their solution to a murder that happens on the night.

Happy Candy Ltd is the fictional company around which the plot has been woven. The guests are attending the first night of a weekend long sales conference. The event has been set up to let them meet the HQ team and get a pep talk from Mr. Chum, the Sales Manager. But the discovery of a murder turns the evening from celebration to investigation. The guests take on the challenge to solve the case, and help the Victoria Police. And they also get to enjoy a great three course dinner provided by the Ambrosia centre.

Seated in groups of up to eight, guests will be able to collaborate and discuss their theories. Some guests will enjoy interviewing suspects, while others will prefer to solve brain teasers to uncover the truth. And others will just enjoy watching events unfold. The plot is not linear either. There are side plots, red herrings and diversions. All helping to build a compelling story to uncover.

Starting Jan. 27, Murder on the Agenda is running on three weekends. Tickets price are $68, with an opening special at $60. For more information visit www.selectyourtickets.com
