The long-running TV series, Seriously Dancing, is now into its 14th contest. Hailed as bringing ballroom dancing back into the average viewer’s dining room, Seriously Dancing, hosted by the popular presenter Bruce Falseteeth, has been a surprising hit and the judges themselves have become household names. The show sees celebrities competing with each other for the Glitterball Trophy, dancing themselves silly with professional partners in an attempt to wow the judges.
However, this evening the show has been called to an abrupt halt. Bruce, the much loved presenter, has found murdered backstage! And it definitely wasn’t nice to see him to see him, to see him dead!
Foxy Trott (Presenter)
A ray of sunshine and co-presenter of the show, Foxy brings both elegance and warmth to the contest and is always sparkling in her tailored dresses.
Leah Tard (Judge)
Extremely comely and well balanced, Leah is never short of a smile and her eyes sparkle.
Len Badguy (Lead Judge)
British Ballroom Champion and always dressed smartly in his tux, Len is a Londoner through and through and never minces his words.
Tony Buttontelli (Judge)
Extremely flamboyant and more than a little camp, Tony lives and breathes dance and always cuts a fine figure in his tailored Italian suits.
Charles Stone (Judge)
Always immaculately dressed, this lean Australian is not known for pulling any punches when he gives his opinion.
OPTIONAL EXTRA – Ballroom dancers – this game lends itself to having two different showcase dances at the start of rounds 1 and 3. These are fabulous when built into the evening as it really gives the guests that “wow” factor.
If you’re looking for a murder mystery evening which supplies entertaining sleuthing while you dine, then our Dinner Theatre style murder mystery evenings are just what you are looking for.
Each mystery is designed to be run in one room within a hotel/restaurant setting during a three course meal.
There are five suspects (our cast). One murder occurs before the event (the discovery of the body usually begins the evening) and one murder occurs mid-way through the evening.
These mysteries are written as interactive dinner theatre with a series of scripts as well as interactive questioning by the guests. They are fun, melodramatic and engrossing.
Sadly they are usually not usually appropriate for young children due to the number of deaths involved!

|7.00pm||On arrival, guests are greeted in character by the cast.|
