At StageCoach Theatre, we love being able to perform our fun murder mystery puzzles with you.

Ghost Stories: A Haunted House-themed Murder Mystery

Written and Directed by Michael Young

Welcome to the spooky, old Carlyle House, the site of a grisly murder that occurred 10 years ago. You must summon the ghost to find out what happened that night and solve the puzzles to reveal the murderer.

Murder Mystery meets Escape Room

A minimum payment of $200 is needed to secure the date.
  5. Bring your own dinner or snacks. We can also provide a catered meal, either as a buffet or individually packaged, based on a menu you choose. Cost is $28+. Drinks are sold separately.
