Dinner, Drag, Drinks… and a Detective?

Vancouver Mysteries presents a series of murder mystery dinner shows: Murder Is a Drag. Tickets include food, a drink, drag performances and a detective.

Each chapter will take place in a different setting with a different murder victim and 3 different suspects.

Can you solve the murder?

Interact with the suspects, solve a puzzle, collect clues and help our detective solve the murder!

Music, Mayhem… and Murder? 

This fast-paced and funny show has two intermissions – during the first intermission players work on a puzzle to collect clues (always optional) and during the second intermission you can cast your ballot to vote for the suspect(s)  that you think killed our murder victim!

Murder Mystery Dinner – Early Show

You could be on your way home by 9PM if you choose this show! Meet your friends after work or elevate your date night to dinner and a show! Check event details when you book for specific timing (show times may vary). Tickets include dinner and one drink – preview an example of the menu here (menu varies from show to show, contact us if you have questions before you book).

Murder Mystery – The Late Show

Plan to enjoy a late dinner or plan to eat dinner elsewhere first. If the venue listed on your tickets is The Show Cellar we recommend the Park Pub which is at the same address as our venue. The Late Show starts later (obviously!) but you can still be home by midnight (if you live nearby!). Check event details when you book for specific timing (show times may vary). Some Late Show events are ticketed events only, meaning you are purchasing a ticket for the show but then you can order drinks/dinner when you get there.

How Do Tips Work For this Drag Whodunit? 

An 18% gratuity for the performers is added to the ticket price when you book. (Note if your ticket includes food/drink, there will also be an 18% gratuity for the servers.) Unlike other drag performances, guests typically do not tip performers during the show. However tips are welcome afterwards – there is also an opportunity to get photos with the cast after the show!

All prices plus applicable taxes.

Also available for private groups of 25 to 55 people, contact us for information.
