Although we are NOT on a real train, all the plays have a train setting, within a background of Kansas City history. Performances are held in some of your favorite area restaurants.

Welcome Aboard!!!

all aboard

The usual suspects? I don’t think so!! Look closely at your dinner companions. Could you be sitting next to a MURDERER? Or an ACCOMPLICE?

Only The Mystery Train will take you back to another time, and put you in the middle of the action. You’ll find yourself up to your eyeballs in high-brow antics that will leave you wondering where your alibi went.

Take the most dastardly devious doings in Kansas City’s past and add a four-course dinner, a compelling conundrum to consider, mix in some laughs, and you have a real good time!

Our shows are truly a theatrical experience, with fully scripted shows, written by local writers, and presented by professional actors. You can be as involved as you want to be. Ever wanted to be an actor? We have a role just written for you! Always got the killer pegged? You may become the Grand Master Gumshoe!
