How the Mystery Theatre Works
You may purchase your ticket at the Winery for $45.00 (plus tax) which includes a great meal and the price of the entertainment. The main fare is generally a steak or prime rib with a variety of delicious sides and tremendous desserts. Drinks are purchased separately.
Plan to arrive no later than 6:00 pm or so as seating is assigned. You are free to sample our wines in the wine tasting room and you may purchase a bottle or glass of wine, or your favorite beer, to enjoy during the program and the meal. You can also visit our gift shop or enjoy the views of our winery and peaceful outdoor setting before the show. During this advance time, the evening's actors may mingle with the crowd and seek volunteers to play some of the short parts. This is strictly voluntary and adds to a hilarious evening when you, your friends or someone else gets a chance to showcase their talents, or even flubs.
Once the limited number of parts are filled, we will ask that everyone be seated and the fun will begin. Your meal will be served at your seated location and different courses served throughout the program. The entire event will last until approximately 9:30 pm.
We hope that you will join us for great food, great wine and a very enjoyable evening of entertainment. If you have never experienced a Mystery Theatre, you are in for a treat - give it a try! If you've been before, you can see we have a variety of plays and all are different and unique in their own way. Please tell your friends and reserve space for your group! For reservations, please call Hill Prairie Winery at (217) 635-9900.
