Lone Star Murder Mysteries

Our critically acclaimed, award winning Lone Star Murder Mysteries are set in the 1880's, when Texas was wild and cattle were king. A time when the glow of lanterns along with the sounds of music and laughter from the local saloon, 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. We invite you to take a light-hearted trip back to our version of the wild west, where laughs fly like bullets and hilarity is the law of the land.

For murder mystery aficionados, we provide intrigue, suspense, and challenge for their investigative skills. For those who just want to have some fun, we provide more hilarity than you can imagine! This is a 90 minute scripted show in three acts with an intermission between Act I and Act II.

Texas Meetings and Events Magazine Best Entertainment North Texas


In 2003, Lone Star Murder Mysteries debuted in the Fort Worth Stockyards as an instant hit. In September 2004 we moved to the Gaylord Texan where year round we entertained thousands with our unique brand of Wild West comedy "who-done-its" and established a reputation as a great entertainment experience. Lone Star Murder Mysteries were named "Best Entertainment in North Texas" in both 2009 and 2010 by Texas Meetings + Events Magazine and garnered a four dagger rating, the highest given, from the Ft. Worth Star Telegram in its review of Best Murder Mystery Dinner Theaters. These accolades are great, but the most meaningful have been the thousands of positive comments we've received from our audiences. You can read a few of them below. We've branded our wacky western style of comedy entertainment "Where Historical Meets Hysterical"® and after a few hours of laughter and fun we think you'll agree.

Take a peek here and see how much fun your group party can have.
