The Dinner Detective - Madison
The Dinner Detective is the largest, award-winning, interactive comedic murder mystery dinner show in the United States. We are now running public and private shows in cities across the country every week.
Our immensely popular shows are set in the present day. Unlike other murder mystery dinner shows, here you will find no cheesy costumes, no recited campy dialogue and no hokey song and dance. Our performers are dressed just like everyone else, leaving all of the guests to suspect who is a part of the show and who is not. In many instances, guests are seated with the performers and don't even realize it until they die...the performers, that is! Our Detectives proceed to interrogate everyone and find clues as more people die. At the end of the night, prizes are awarded to the Top Sleuth who solves the crime.
We also offer private shows any day or night of the week that are customized to groups with roles for their attendees to play.

This is an ongoing run. Most shows take place on Saturday nights. Rehearsal is from 4:00 - 5:45 PM, and the show is from 6:00 - 9:00 PM. Pre-show rehearsals are for that night’s cast only. You will not work every show; we can accommodate most schedules.
Roles are open to all actors, improvisers, and performers. You must be comfortable interacting with audience members in semi-scripted situations. You will be expected to blend in with the audience during the show. Actors receive compensation of $40 - $100 depending on role, and most actors also receive dinner and performer gratuity. Actors are scheduled according to their availability, collected each month.
Audition consists of improv games, performing scenes and exercises, and talking as a group. No need to prepare a monologue/scene in advance; audition is completely improvised. Those auditioning should be prepared to stay for 2 hours, but could be released earlier. No callbacks.
