The cast of this show call themselves the “alternative Branson entertainment” and that description couldn’t be more accurate. Typically, when visitors come to Branson for the shows, they can expect to see full family performances, live bands rocking out onstage, countless country music tributes and bedazzled jackets galore. But with Almost Famous, you won’t find any of that.
This unique murder mystery show is a nice change of pace from the other shows in Branson and features an inviting cast of outgoing actors and actresses. Original scripts, simple sets and a unique take on murder mystery dinners make this show all too appealing.
The Crystal Theatre at the Lodge of the Ozarks welcomes a rowdy crowd for this show, so make sure you’re ready to have a good time! Relax with friends or family while you munch on a delicious meal as the mystery onstage unfolds, revealing an intricate plot, lots of laughs and eventually uncovering the murderer and motive.
You’ll have the chance to guess who committed the crime before the answer is revealed and chat with the hard-working cast members as they wander the theater mingling and serving dinner and dessert.
If you attend Almost Famous Murder Mystery Dinner Theater expecting a well-polished theater performance, it’s safe to say you’ll either be sorely disappointed or really confused. This fun-filled dinner show is meant to keep you on the edge of your seat with edgy humor, a little bit of improv, tons of interaction with the cast and boatloads of audience participation. So feel free to laugh as loud as you want, vocalize those sarcastic comebacks and enjoy a night of entertaining live theater.
Audience members of all walks of life will enjoy this performance but I would suggest leaving the younger kids at home. There are a few jokes meant for a mature audience and maybe one or two words used that you wouldn’t want the kiddos to take home.
