Who Killed Julius Caesar? Murder Mystery Dinner November 2

Posted on

Mystery and intrigue in ancient Rome! Which of Caesar’s political foes will do him in – the seductive Cleopatra? The brutal Brutus? Marc Antony, the Latin Lover? History was never so much fun – and never so deadly!
Our dinner theater events are a riot and will have you laughing all evening! Reservations are required and will be taken until one week prior to the show. Reservations can be made by calling 217-738-2323. Payment is due at the time of reservation. Seats have been known to sell out quickly so call us as soon as possible!

Tickets are $45 each and include a three course dinner and the performance. There are 8 seats per table but you are free to purchase as many or as few tickets as you need. If you make a reservation for a group of friends you will automatically be seated together; if members of your party make separate reservations, be sure to tell us you’d like to be seated with your friends.

Social time begins at 6:30pm and the dinner begins at 7pm with a plated salad. The first act begins as soon as the first course is complete. A buffet style dinner is served after the first act, giving you time to restock the wine at your table too! A plated dessert will be served near the end of the show.

The performances are created and performed by Upstage Productions, which has been producing interactive comedy murder mysteries since 1989, Upstage’s shows are a perfect blend of witty improvisation and legitimate mystery. They perform at a variety of locations all over the United States with a strong following wherever they perform, and have been doing shows at Willow Ridge Winery for over three years. Some of their fans have been to over fifty of their performances across the country! Don’t miss this terrific evening of comedy, mystery, and murder at Willow Ridge Winery!
