2) Mein Shaft Murder Mystery Dinner Theatre Club 81 Billy Bob’s Texas
Billy Bob’s Texas interactive comedy murder mysteries are set in the 1880s, when Texas was wild and cattle was king. A time when the glow of lanterns along with the sounds of music and laughter from the local saloons created a welcome oasis for thirsty cowboys. Rustlers, wranglers, gamblers, saloon girls and lawmen were just a few of the colorful characters who wove the romantic tapestry of this bygone era. Take a light-hearted trip back to THEIR version of the Wild West, “Where Historical meets Hysterical.®”
