Without A Cue is available and eager to work with restaurants to bring murder mystery theater to their banquet rooms. We would like to take this opportunity to introduce Without A Cue Productions, an entertainment company specializing in murder mystery dinner theater, interactive corporate teambuilding, and in-home events such as murder mysteries and Escape Rooms. We perform regularly in Peddler’s Village in New Hope, Pennsylvania, as well as several other locations. In 2019, we produced over 480 murder mystery events, and are happy to bring top-notch entertainment to you! The founders of Without A Cue have been performing murder mysteries in the Philadelphia area since 1996.

Q: What does WAC require for a performance?

A: A private space where actors can prepare before the show begins. A table and chair near an outlet for sound engineer. Meals/vendor platter for the actors & production assistant if your event will have a dinner break. A performance space that is closed off from the public such as a banquet space or private dining room that does not have viewing obstructions. An informed audience – guests LOVE to know that they are about to attend a murder mystery!

Q: How long does the event last?

A: 3-3 1⁄2 hours from the moment your guests walk in to the moment they leave. This time includes breaks for dinner, ballot-collecting, and an initial 30 minutes for guests to arrive and settle while characters interact with the audience. The show itself has a run-time of 11⁄2 - 2 hours.

Q: When should guests eat?

A: The meal (if you have one – dessert theater also works well!) can occur before the show starts, in which case we will take a 15 minute intermission between Act I and Act II, or the meal can occur between the two acts. The second version is our most popular timing.

Q: How many actors are involved?

A: Four or more depending on selected theme.

Q: How does ticketing work?

A: Ticket-selling is the responsibility of the client – you have the freedom to set your own ticket prices. On average, dinner theatre tickets range from $45-$60 per guest (dinner + show). We strongly recommend taking payment at the time of ticket reservations. Please make note of the audience maximum for the show you select. Your event does not need to be ticketed if not necessary.

Q: Are your shows interactive?

A: YES! Each guest has the opportunity to guess whodunit and win a prize at the end of the show. Several of our shows have opportunities for guests to play small roles during the show which last approximately five minutes and do not require preparation beforehand.

Lisa Lent-Miller, Old Bridge Animal Shelter

"Absolutely love this theatre company. I hosted two fundraisers so far using this group as entertainment and both were huge hits. Funny, creative and very entertaining shows. Two thumbs up!! " 


Merck Sharp & Dohme Federal Credit Union

"I just wanted to touch base with you in regards to Saturday night, everything was fantastic! The actors did an amazing job! They were funny and really entertained us, and the singing was a great touch too. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves and really liked the fact that the actors involved them but didn’t make them have to act anything out. They liked that they could be apart of it by talking or just giving a high five or something along those lines. We just wanted to say thank you for everything! "

Char's Tracy Mansion

Murder at the Moulin was a huge success - Thank you for your lively cast of characters!
