Murder Mystery Dinner Cast in costumes

Aleathea’s at the Inn of Cape May, 7 Ocean St.

The scene and the table are both set for “All Bets Are Off”, by Jacky Fazio. After a long weekend in Atlantic City a group of close friends return to their small town home, eager to show off their big winnings. But one of them has a secret to hide. Loyalty and friendship will be pushed to the limits as they realize they don’t know each other as well as they thought, and maybe they don’t want to. Enjoy a four-course dinner as you interact with the cast of likely suspects and the mystery unfolds around you.

Without a Cue Productions

Emlen Physick Estate Stage

Join us for an all new theatrical experience:  in which YOU decide the action!  Without A Cue Productions combines their unique form of interactive entertainment…while also allowing the audience to choose the course the action will take.

In this hilarious parody inspired by the many works of Agatha Christie, a man’s mysterious death is attributed to a curse he placed on his prized possession…but is murder afoot? The audience will vote on which characters does what throughout the story with their phones, so not even the actors know whodunnit!  As one of the best-selling authors of all time (second only to Shakespeare, true story, look it up) Christie has left behind countless mysteries that have captured the imagination. She invented many of the Murder Mystery tropes we know and love, and those tropes are on full display in “And Then They Were Dead!”.
