On Friday, I was invited to attend Mysteriously Yours murder mystery dinner theatre with Val, Casey, and Justin. Mysteriously Yours is celebrating their 25th anniversary of murder mystery in Toronto! They produce different shows all the time and are currently running one called “Once Upon a Murder”. This fairy tale murder mystery featuring a prince, a princess, a queen, the princess’ sister and her boyfriend, and a dopey member of the royal kingdom.
After you take your seat and order your dinner and drinks, you’re given some time to socialize with the rest of your table. The characters start to come out after the appetizers and start walking around the room talking to a few tables. The actors take a seat and the show starts just after dinner is served. We were lucky enough to have Prince Charmin himself (owner of the toilet paper company) sit at our table for the show. He took no time at all to charm Miss. Charming herself!
Around the time that dessert is served, a member of the cast dies and you are tasked with answering the question of the evening:
While I love a little mystery, I don’t appreciate it when it comes to my food. I was impressed that the menu at Mysteriously Yours labeled dishes that were gluten-free or vegan. I was able to follow my gluten-free eating habits and enjoyed my meal. I ordered a shrimp appetizer, the chicken breast piri piri with citrus cucumber yogurt sauce served with herbed quinoa & rapini, and a raspberry sorbet for dessert (the gluten-free option).

Let’s just say there’s a reason they’ve been in business for 25 years!
The show was really entertaining and I was happy to be sitting with someone like Casey who is really animated and loves being involved in stuff like this. The characters pulled almost all of the audience into the show at some point and really interact with the audience.
Mysteriously Yours would be a great idea for anything from a date to a fun family dinner.
Tickets to Mysteriously Yours cost around $65 per person and include the show and a 3 course dinner. You may also choose to just see the show without dinner for $40.
