Step into the rustic decor of the Old Mill Inn -- surrounded by dark wood, hand-carved beams and vintage stonework -- and you're in the perfect setting for an evening of mystery and intrigue. Indeed, the historic landmark building is said to be haunted by the spirit of an old German cook named Hilda who died by falling (or being pushed) into a vat of her famous bread dough. At Keith and Margo's Ultimate Murder Mystery Dinner, you'll have a murder mystery of your own to investigate. As you enjoy a three-course dinner featuring award-winning chicken-fried steak with cream gravy (vegetarian options available), the action will unfold all around you -- and you'll get drawn into it by the homicide detective (a professional stand-up comedian) who considers you a suspect. Deemed "the masterminds of the genre" (Los Angeles Times), Keith and Margo's improvisational actors mingle amongst you as you follow clues and try to solve the crime. The murderer might be sitting right next to you ... A prize goes to the person who's the best sleuth!
This fabulously fun song-and-dance sensation follows a sweet sorority sister named Elle, known for her all-pink wardrobe and her chihuahua Bruiser, whose unlikely plan to win back her Ivy League boyfriend involves putting down her credit cards, picking up the books and setting out to go where no Delta Nu has gone before: Harvard Law. This unlikely academic not only ends up teaching the intellectual elite a thing or two, but she finds true love along the way. Nominated in 2007 for seven Tony Awards (including Best Book of a Musical and Best Original Score), the bright and bubbly Legally Blonde: The Musical is based on the novel by Amanda Brown and the subsequent hit movie starring Reese Witherspoon.

There's nothing in live theater better than seeing a pair of actors becoming deliciously evil characters and sinking their teeth into a juicy plot, which is why Les Liaisons Dangereuses has remained a stage favorite for over 30 years (and why it was made into an Oscar-winning movie called Dangerous Liaisons). It took home London's Olivier Award for Best New Play in 1986, and it's still more shocking than any scandalous cable drama. Enter a decadent aristocratic world of carnal scheming, where two ex-lovers turned rivals use sex as a weapon to humiliate and degrade others. The ice-cold opponents seduce, corrupt and trample the hearts of those around them in a dangerous game -- but can they make it out unscathed? Find out when Theatre Three brings this classic to Dallas.
