… And a Show!

What about the murder mystery side of the evening? The theater offers four different shows, each with their own flavor.

You can follow the misadventures of two different families, the Lukes and the Clampetts, in ‘Moonshine Murders’ and ‘The Killbillies.’

  • Moonshine Murders – A group of moonshiners run from the law through the Sevier County hills in this fun romp.
  • The Killbillies – The zombie apocalypse meets its match in the Clampett family in this high-spirited murder mystery.

Fans of ‘Gone With the Wind’ will enjoy ‘Frankly Scarlett, You’re Dead’ and its sequel ‘Scarlett Reloaded.’

  • Frankly Scarlett, You’re Dead – Colonel Simpson throws a Cotillion at the Simpson Plantation, but this glamorous evening ends with a twist he (and the audience) won’t see coming.
  • Scarlett Reloaded – 2017 brought the thrilling sequel to ‘Frankly Scarlett, You’re Dead.’ Although the show can be enjoyed on its own, audiences are encouraged to watch ‘Frankly Scarlett’ first.

These shows rated PG-13 for mild adult innuendos. They’re fun and highly interactive, with audience participation encouraged.
