“Who Killed The Business?” Mystery Theatre Comes To The Centre Club


Was it the owner’s spendthrift son, the lazy salesman, the bookkeeper who knows all and tells all, the not-so-innocent foreman, or one of the other so-called valued and indispensable employees that killed the business?mystery_shopping small

That’s what dinner guests must decide when the business committee of Tampa’s Centre Club presents a mystery dinner theatre production entitled “Who Killed The Business?” on Friday, October 2, 2015 at 6:00 p.m. at the Centre Club.

The mystery begins when the founder and president of an alleged Acme Widget Manufacturing gathers together employees, their significant others, neighbors, friends, and a handful of his best vendors to celebrate the company’s 15th anniversary of the business with a festive dinner party at the Centre Club.

As the party gets underway, a long-time advisor to Acme enters the scene and informs the founder that the business is dead!

Throughout the evening, Acme employees begin to tell their stories and trickle information about what could be motives, opportunities, gripes, observations, feelings, conflicts, blame, their own suspicions about who could have caused the demise of the company.

At the conclusion of the evening guests working in small groups summarize their findings including initial suspicions, motives, opportunities, red herrings and, of course to identify the killer or killers.

Price for a three-course gourmet dinner is $39.50 per person including tax and gratuity. A cash bar is available throughout the evening. For additional information about “Who Killed The Business?” and to make a reservation, contact the Centre Club at 813-286-4040.

Centre Club members Gil Effron, Loren Murfield, Ph.D., and Jenna Waites developed this original production of “Who Killed The Business?”
