If you've never been, we can attest; a trip out to the Empress Tea Room & Bistro for a Murder Mystery Company show will make for one of the most uniquely exciting nights in Tampa.  Apparently, a ton of other people can too, because the Murder Mystery Company will return to the Tampa Bay area for their third run here in just under a year.

This awesome theatre company will take in the holiday spirit with a new show called Santa's Slain set to premier on Tuesday, November 16 at the Empress Tea Room & Bistro.

This interactive Christmas show will put you right in the midst of the action as you and other audience members work to solve a certain murderous mystery.

This time around, the law firm of "Doowie, Cheatem & Howe's" is throwing their annual holiday party.  Everything's going great until a not-so-sober Santa arrives.  He's a nuisance, but tolerable...tolerable to most that is.  That's because in the midst of this party, good ol' Saint Nick is found dead in his tracks.  Now it's up to you to unwrap this mystery and solve this holiday crime.

Tickets are now on sale for Santa's Slain Murder Mystery Dinner Show. Each show kicks off at 7 p.m. Admission to the show is $60 and includes the 2 1/2 hour, interactive and award winning Murder Mystery show with 3 course meal provided by Empress Tea Room and Bistro. Best of all, if you mention 813area.com, you can get them for $45!
