We Educate and Entertain
The Theatre Lab's goal is to provide quality entertainment and an enjoyable atmosphere for our guests, so that they may become invigorated and enthusiastic about solving a mystery.
Over the top acting meets a "B" movie. I always tell my actors that anything and most everything they learned in acting class doesn't apply here. Our high energy evening of comedy, improv and audience participation gives the audience more than just a night out; it gives them an experience. Remember this isn't Broadway!
How Can We Help your Organization or Business?
For Zoo and Theme Parks
The Theatre Lab has an extrordinary 1 hour production on Recycling and how it effects our animals and planet. It's a audience participation/comedy with an informative look at how we, as individuals, can make a difference, one step at a time.
We have helped such organizations and companies as The Columbus Zoo, Ford Motor Company, The Buckeye Hall of Fame Cafe, The Lancaster Country Club, G.P. Agostino's, AT&T, State Auto, Mead Corporation, Tony Packos, Cherry Valley Lodge, 5 Spaghetti Warehouse locations (we were the original troupe)and many others.
The Theatre Lab has produced functions for groups as small as 20 and as large as 500. Wireless microphones and staging are required once the audience grows larger than 120 patrons.
The Theatre Lab can provide productions geared towards holiday parties and theme events. In order for The Theatre Lab to provide such a service, we must be provided with advance notice of the event. Otherwise, the production offered will be the same as the one being currently offered at our weekly venue. We can also incorporate your company into a performance, but again, advance notice is needed in order to make such an addition to a script.
The Theatre Lab performs private parties at a rate of $16.00 per person with a minimum of 50 persons. The performance location must be within 25 miles of Columbus. When a performance exceeds the mileage requirements, the price is $18 per person. This price does not include food, beverages, service,etc. **There are extra charges for additional services. (For example: musical entertainment, wireless microphones, amps, etc.)
We can perform anywhere from a hotel to a restaurant or banquet room, mansions to state parks. The Theatre Lab has even created shows for on board dinner cruises. The only main requirement is a single space that can accommodate the group and the actors.Going Beyond the Call of Performance
If a patron requests the actors to do other tasks besides acting in our show (i.e. waiting tables, helping with set-up/clean-up, singing, playing the part on our down time) we ask that the patron tip the actor or actors accordingly or provide the company with a donation. The final decision as to how much and what we can do, will be decided on by the owner.
To Make our customers happy! We can customize our shows for you!

We host a three-act comedy-mystery theatre production between each course of a three-course meal for our guests. Our goal is to create and environment in which our guests feel comfortable interacting, improvising, and becoming very creative in solving a "Who-Dunnit". During the play, each guest becomes a private eye. They can become as involved as they wish in solving the murder, including interrogating each actor in the show.
They have the opportunity to gather clues from about the room before and during the show to assist in their investigation of the crime. To reward our guests, we give out prizes for those who were exceptionally creative in solving the crime, as well as those who just didn't have a clue.
The Theatre Lab is a very flexible organization that provides interactive entertainment that can help a variety of organizations in a number of ways. We can customize any show to reflect on your business...write about actual people in the company, talk about funny issues that took place at your business.
