Step into the rustic decor of the Old Mill Inn -- surrounded by dark wood, hand-carved beams and vintage stonework -- and you're in the perfect setting for an evening of mystery and intrigue. Indeed, the historic landmark building is said to be haunted by the spirit of an old German cook named Hilda who died by falling (or being pushed) into a vat of her famous bread dough. At Keith and Margo's Ultimate Murder Mystery Dinner, you'll have a murder mystery of your own to investigate. As you enjoy a three-course dinner featuring award-winning chicken-fried steak with cream gravy (vegetarian options available), the action will unfold all around you -- and you'll get drawn into it by the homicide detective (a professional stand-up comedian) who considers you a suspect. Deemed "the masterminds of the genre" (Los Angeles Times), Keith and Margo's improvisational actors mingle amongst you as you follow clues and try to solve the crime. The murderer might be sitting right next to you ... A prize goes to the person who's the best sleuth!

Led by the enigmatic master of ceremonies and charismatic singer Sally Bowles, the colorful characters of this Kander and Ebb masterpiece are eager to entertain with beloved musical numbers that include "Don't Tell Mama," "Willkommen" and "Cabaret."

You've probably heard the story of Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde before, but you've never seen the classic horror like this.

On the fog-bound streets of Victorian-era London, Henry Jekyll's experiments with exotic "powders and tinctures" have brought forth the villainous alter-ego Edward Hyde -- resulting in a deadly game of cat-and-mouse that determines who shall be the master or his slave.
