Designed to take place around a meal with an emphasis on entertainment. Not dissimilar to a theatre restaurant style event. We have a variety of venue partners or can use a venue of your choice. Team building can be incorporated but its not the main focus. Guests can participate or watch as they prefer though everyone is given the chance to be involved.
There is a choice of two interactive, comedy, murder-mystery dinner shows with a cast of 5-6 actors in each show, A Dinner to Die For or Time Star. These dinner shows have been a regular part of the Melbourne International Comedy Festival for the last nine years and the shows are often performed for private parties.
The dinners are set around two options including A Dinner to Die For and Time Star. Each show is set in different periods.
The dinner shows are designed to create a party around dinner. Guest are allocated small character in advance of the evening and encouraged but not required to dress accordingly. Team building can be built in but it is not the main focus.
Set in the 1920s
Not molecular gastronomy, but a wickedly funny Musical, Murder Mystery Dinner.
Christmas Eve 1928, and Lord Quinten Daventry hosts his annual party bash with all the usual festive trimmings. Rumour in social circles is that he will announce his engagement to Miss Fanny. Agatha Christie in spirit – all cut glass accents, pearls, flapper dresses, army outfits and monocles – with lashings of sexual innuendo and double entendres.
The core cast includes the delightfully flighty Miss Fanny, besotted and oblivious to the designs on her fortune. Uncle Bernie, a former army colonel, a blustering, big-bellied chauvinist. The pièce de résistance has to be Nanny Maude, Quinten’s childhood Nanny. Scottish down to her brown boots, this is one of the best drag acts since Mrs Doubtfire.
Party guests are allocated a role for the night and encouraged, but not required, to indulge their inner artist by dressing and behaving in character. They play the game as a detective for the night whilst mingling over dinner. Subplots emerge and the evening begins to gather pace and spices up into a hilarious romp peppered with music, murder, mysteries, disembodied limbs and suitably hysterical screams. As shows go this is interactive entertainment at its best.
Travel back to 1985
Part Murder She Wrote, part Back to the Future and part Dr Who– albeit in a testosterone-tanked ‘Tardis’ – Time Star invites you and your friends to cast aside your inhibitions and party your way back to the 80s. Your host, and the brains behind the world’s first commercial time machine is TJ Packham, a flamboyant, sex-mad, ego-centric entrepreneur with a reputation for genius but also for shady dealings. Motivated by a desire to find out who killed his mother in Priscilla in 1985, TJ has gathered the great and the good for the launch of his Time Star machine, which is powered by the Big Bang, but not the cosmic variety; this one runs on lust and libido.
Dust off your shoulder pads, stretch on your spandex, dab on some frosted lippie and don your disco gear to travel back in time with a soundtrack of classic hits – from Madonna to Michael Jackson. Will it all go to plan or will it go flop? Be part of history and hold on for the ride of your life. With a 1980s-inspired menu, drag queens, disco hits, daring dating games, glitz, glamour and bling (think Joan Collins on speed) and oodles of sexual innuendo, you’re guaranteed an evening full of fun and laughter. It’s so good, it’s outrageous.
