Murder Mystery Dinner | Richardson

Richardson, TX

Murder at The Lighthouse

The Stringbean • Richardson, TX

Selected Saturdays

7:00 – 10:00 PM

A 360° Immersive Theatrical Experience with our plots designed especially for Amateur Sleuths with a twisted sense of humor!

Drop by to Dine, Drink, Deduce, and Die… Laughing — at Keith & Margo’s MURDER AT THE LIGHTHOUSE — where incognito professional stage, TV and film actors surround you as imposters and where you can be part of the action, both as an investigator and as a homicide suspect! 

We’ve partnered with The String Bean in Richardson — a southern, home cooking kitchen with a cozy and inviting feel… an ideal setting for intrigue, cold-blooded murder, slippery red herrings, diabolical clues, and ingenious detective work!

Enjoy an evening of delicious cuisine and despicable crime as you help solve a triple homicide, but don’t be surprised if you find yourself at the business end of a comically snarky third-degree interrogation by our hilarious Homicide Detective, ostensibly from the Richardson Police Department.

Listen In!

FAQ's:

Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?

No ID is required.  We do not recommend our shows for children under 13 years of age.  Plots may involve adult situations or mature themes (infidelity, drug use, gambling).  Humor may contain mild adult innuendo.

What are my parking options for getting to and from the event?

Free public parking is available.

How can I contact the organizer with any questions?

What's the refund policy? Is my ticket transferable?

All sales are final and nonrefundable. No exceptions. However, if you can’t make the show, you are allowed to give someone else your ticket for that date.

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

No. Your name will be on the check-in list with our Mystery Host at the door. We will email you a confirmation with directions and additional information, however.

Is it ok if the name on my ticket doesn't match the person who attends?

Yes.

How can members of a group sit together if they reserve separately?

When reserving, you are asked if you are part of a larger group. If you are, type your group name (e.g. The Smith Party, or The Jones Party) into the space provided, and we will sit you all together.

Is it gory or scary?

Stage Blood is used, but nothing too graphic. This is not like a haunted house experience. No one is going to leap out and try to scare you.

Is the murder mystery before or after the dinner?

During. It begins the moment you park your car, and ends only as you exit the restaurant.

May I take pictures?

Yes! We encourage it… as long as you tag it (if you upload it to social media) as KEITH & MARGO’S MURDER MYSTERY TEXAS. Please also tag the location as STRINGBEAN RICHARDSON

What Others Have To Say

We had an absolute blast! The food was great & the mystery had us guessing the whole time.

I loved it! Intriguing and fun! Hilarious, fun, joyful, comedic.

Well done. Detective and music effects were fun. Characters were interesting, fun and lively. Format of the evening – encouraging people to mingle. Food was good.

We wanted to do something different for our anniversary and this was perfect. We had so much fun. They keep you entertained, laughing, interacting and guessing the whole time. I highly recommend.

I was the killer! I would love to do this again. If you have never been please go and attend. It’s an amazing experience!

Ingenious scripts and motives for murder! We are amazed at the talented actors and actresses, or should I say “Con Men” and “Con Women” that are so good at interacting with people and misleading them.

They helped me make my marriage proposal very special as they worked it right into the show. My fiancee was surprised and excited! Thanks, guys!

My date had tried one of your competitors and she told me that your show was far better on every level.

A must see if you’ve never been or even if you’ve “seen em all”.

It was one of the most memorable moments of our honeymoon!

It would make a super date night. It wasn’t campy or corny.

Absolutely nowhere else can you have this much fun being a murder suspect. We left with a third of the votes naming me the killer which is awesome!

I’ve been twice, and both times we had a blast. We were genuinely duped by an actor at our table who succeeded in her role as another guest like us.
