What to Expect

Expect smiles, shenanigans and maybe even a little dancing. Expect shy people to come out of their shells. Expect surprises, shouts and jokes, but most of all, expect a lot of laughter.

A Jest show is no ordinary murder mystery dinner theater. There are no spooky scenes, no stage separating the show from the audience and we can guarantee that a dozen overzealous actors won’t be competing for your attention. Because when you hire Jest, it’s not about the actors, the story or even the mystery, it’s about making sure your guests have a great time.

We’ve been around a long time and we’ve earned our reputation for high quality entertainment. We only book professional actors and we’re darn good at making sure everyone has a blast.
