What is this?

 

 Mysteriously Yours Dinner Theatre is the GTA’s only interactive Dinner Theatre! We specialize in comedic murder mysteries and have been performing original shows for over 30 years, having made our debut at the historic Fairmont Royal York and now we are performing at the fabulous Chelsea Hotel, downtown. As a professional theatre company, we also offer custom and private mysteries to suit any need and occasion.

 

 

Is this suitable for Children and/or Teens?

 

Children and teens are welcome but please be advised that our mysteries are written for adults. There is risqué material and double entendres in our shows but we don’t allow any swearing and there is nothing you couldn’t see on Prime Time TV. We recommend them for 10 year olds and up and although we’re sure they are very well behaved, we do not allow infants or children under 6 under any circumstance.

 

 

Where can we see one?

 

We perform at Chelsea Hotel,  downtown Toronto (33 Gerrard Steet West). We are open to the public with performances on Saturday evenings. We also have select Wednesday Matinees at Old Mill Toronto, West end of Toronto – please check our schedule or call the Box Office for details!

 

 

Do you have to have a group to attend?

 

You can attend as a single, couple, small party, large party, whatever! Small parties will likely join with other guests at a table. We will accept requests for a table alone but cannot guarantee it due to high demand of seats. –

 

 

What happens at your mystery evening? How does it work?

 

Performances are held Saturday evenings with arrival at 6:30 pm for a delicious buffet dinner. Guests joining us for show only arrive at 7:30 pm and the mystery itself begins around 7:45 pm when you are introduced to the cast and theme of the show. Characters mingle with guests and visit tables to set the scene. Then, someone you’ve just met dies or a body is found and a detective is called in to investigate! He leads the questioning but you get to question them as well because they’re spread throughout the room, sitting at the tables with you.

 

Clue sheets and pencils are available at your table to help track the clues and figure out whodunit before the evening wraps up around 9:45 pm. Prizes are awarded to some of the guests who correctly solve the mystery. It’s a lot of fun and great for couples, friends, families, work outings, engagement parties, stag/stagettes- what occasion isn’t made better by a little murder?!

 

 

Do I have to participate or do any acting?

 

You can participate as little or as much as you’d like. You’re welcome to simply sit back and be entertained or you can get involved- question the suspects, keep track of the clues, see if you can figure out “whodunit?”! All our mysteries are solvable and you will have enough information to solve the mystery by the time ballots are passed out during the 2nd and final intermission. Tell us who you think the murderer is and why. From the correct ballots, we draw 5 and those lucky 5 win a prize (prizes vary and are subject to availability)

 

 

Do you do anything special for Birthdays or Anniversaries?

 

Absolutely! We love making your special occasion more memorable and will incorporate people celebrating birthdays or anniversaries- we’ve even done marriage proposals! Please call the Box Office to add an occasion note to your booking so we can put your guest under suspicion and have a little fun with them. It’s never anything embarrassing- they may be asked to say a word or a line or it could be a quick stand up/sit down role. It’s all in good fun and a great way to say congratulations!

 

**Note that although we will try our best to include everyone who wants to take part, we cannot guarantee inclusion and guests celebrating birthdays or anniversaries will take priority.**

 

 

What is the Dress Code?

 

We ask guests to arrive dressed Casual Elegance- so no baseball hats, sweatpants, ripped jeans, that kind of thing. Some people choose to dress up and others don’t. Usually, whatever you’re comfortable in is fine with us and we always love it when guests join us dressed in the theme or era of the mystery!

 

 

How far in advance should we book?

 

It’s best to book as far in advance as possible. Some performances can be booked the same day and others are sold out weeks in advance. All discounts, coupons, and show passes are accepted based on availability so it is especially important to call ahead in these cases.

 

 

How do we make reservations?

 

Tickets can also be purchased online via Ticketweb or give the Box Office a call at 416 486 7469. We take payment at the time of booking to guarantee the reservation. Guests may pay by visa or master card.

 

We have a 5-day Cancellation Policy so if you cannot make it, we need to know at least 5 days in advance of the show. Cancellations inside of 5 days will not receive a refund. We feel our Cancellation Policy is exceedingly fair in comparison to other theatres in Toronto and as such, there are no exceptions regardless of weather conditions or illness.

 

 

How can we give a Mystery Evening as a gift?

 

Great idea! We sell Gift Certificates in any denomination of your choice. You can purchase any value you’d like and if there is a balance, your guests can use it towards another visit. We can either mail or email the certificates directly to you or purchase online via our website and because we treat them just like cash, they never expire or depreciate.

 

 

I’m driving. Where do I park?

 

Chelsea Hotel offers on site parking at an additional charge. Old Mill Toronto provides free parking, however please contact box office for a parking pass.
