Conway Scenic Railroad dining car Chocorua

Murder Mystery Dinner Train

Date: June 6 & 15 and October 25 & 26, 2019


Climb aboard the Conway Scenic Railroad for a new farcical adventure for 2019 … this year’s theme will be announced in early 2019 and promises to transport you into a world that is sure to entertain and lift your spirits right up to and including the moment the final curtain drops.

A first class evening of fabulous food, superior service and rollicking Dinner Theatre aboard the dinning car Chocorua or Hattie Evans. Passengers can participate as much or as little as they are like in the latest tongue in cheek zany antics. No matter the setting; a red carpet event, a wedding reception, a gala reunion or as yet undisclosed confection, Arts in Motion Theatre Company will keep everyone on their toes as they work the clues to uncover the name of the killer on board.

Come dressed for a dinner party with the glitterati, and you’ll arrive appropriately attired for the occasion: fine dinning, fine company, dressed to impress… this is an adults only event.
