New Hampshire Restaurants That Hold Murder Mystery Dinners

By Sara Messelaar
Murder Mystery Theaters are a fun alternative to traditional theater productions.

New Hampshire is known more for its parks and nature than for its cultural centers. Most theater productions in New Hampshire are put on by community theaters. Other than the community theaters there are some year-round dinner theaters, such as Stage One Productions in Manchester, and several dance troupes, such as the Ballet New England in Portsmouth. For murder mystery dinners, there are only a few options.

Mayhem and Murder Productions
