“The Dinner Detective” Interactive Mystery Show Holding Auditions for Actors in Michigan


The Dinner Detective Auditions

Location: Oakland County, Michigan

Type: Theater


Seeking actors and actresses ages 18 and up for hire as company members in The Dinner Detective, America’s largest murder mystery dinner show. All ethnicities welcome and encouraged to submit.

The Dinner Detective, is not the normal murder mystery dinner show you expect and know. The award-winning, interactive, comedic shows are set in the present day which means – no cheesy costumes, no campy dialogue and no hokey song and dance. Our performers are dressed just like everyone else, leaving all of the guests to suspect who is a part of the show and who is not. Guests are seated with performers and don’t even realize it until the reveal in the end. By the end of the night, four courses have been served and prizes have been awarded to the top sleuth who solves the crime.

Seeking performers with the ability to play a real person, blending into the audience. Improv experience a plus but not required. No food service will ever be required by any performer.

Pay: $80 (per performance) for the two lead detectives, $40 (per performance) for seated performers plus a tips ($20-$40) and a full meal at every performance.

Auditions will take place at the Embassy Suites, Troy (850 Tower Drive, Troy, MI) on:

Saturday May 28th, 4:00 pm
Saturday, June 11th, 4:00pm

Auditions will consist of small scripted bits, which will be sent to you once you are scheduled, as well as some exercises to convey the ability to convince audience members you are not actors. Expect to stay no more than 1 hour.
