Dust off your Deerstalker cap and polish your favorite monocle, ‘cause Callaway Gardens needs your detective skills for “Showdown at Northspoon”. At this mystery dinner theater, guests will join the Sheepling siblings as they learn who will inherit Northspoon, the family ranch. Who successfully met the goal set forth by their deceased relative for the big inheritance? The drama on the ranch continues to grow as the moment of truth approaches. Can you figure out “whodunit” before dessert is served?

The Mystery Dinner Theater will include opportunities to interact with the cast while you dine on delicious cuisine from the Callaway Gardens culinary team led by Executive Chef Joe Malone. Guests selected just before the show will receive reading parts and will be cued to deliver their award winning performances. Expect a few surprises and activities to add to the fun, and solving the mystery comes with token prizes for the winning team.
