What Is The Mystery Shop?

The Mystery Shop is a traveling theatre specializing in adult and children’s interactive mysteries and programs.

Hosting a Mystery Shop event is easy – you provide the “scene of the crime” and we’ll do the rest!

  • Non-profit groups such as libraries, schools and park districts.
  • Social groups, clubs and private parties.

Our productions are real mysteries – written by professional playwrights and performed by professional actors and actresses. The Mystery Shop is committed to providing quality entertainment to an active and involved audience. We stimulate the mind as well as the funny bone.
