Murder on the Love Boat

Murder Mystery Dinner Theatre

Written and Directed by R. Aaron Thompson

Produced by Jerri Wiseman

Welcome aboard The Mediterranean Mermaid as she returns home from another fun-filled trip full of romance, adventure, and … a dead body. It appears that one of the passengers was found dead next to the railing. Now, it’s up to you, your fellow passengers, your Captain, and your lovely cruise director to solve the crime. Luckily, an FBI agent has just been air-lifted aboard to help. But wait, he has his own agenda…  Murder on the Love Boat promises something for everyone. Set a course for an exciting and new adventure on the Love Boat.

All murder mysteries are what we would rate as PG13. There are usually sexual innuendo, mild swear words, and, of course, murder. It is up to you as a parent to determine whether it will be suitable for your child to attend a performance.

“Murder on the Love Boat” is available for private bookings for groups of 30 people or more. Please contact us at [email protected] or call us at 571-477-9444 to discuss this and other entertainment options for your group.
