Holly Hotel on November 14, 2004
Click picture to order tickets

Who killed Lizzie Borden’s parents? On a hot August morning in 1892, the Borden house was locked. The maid was outside washing windows. Emma Borden, Lizzie’s sister, was out visiting friends. Lizzie was the only one in the house. Yet, when both her parents were found hacked to death… Lizzie was found "not guilty". Join us in 2004 as we recreate some of the events that led up to the murder  of Mr. and Mrs. Borden.


Enjoy a delicious, authentic Victorian Dinner while participating in this interactive dinner theater event with our actors, judge and attorneys as we revisit the events of this unsolved murder mystery.


On November 14, 2004, dinner guests at the Holly Hotel participated in an interactive dinner theater production which recreated the events that led up to the famous murder of Lizzie Borden’s parents. These short reenactments were performed during the dinner courses.  The banquet room was divided with half of the guests representing the defense team and the other half representing the prosecution. Working from the actual trial transcripts, our actors recreated a shorter condensed version of the events that lead up to the murder.   The guests had fun as they interacted with the members of the cast and examined the murder scenes.


This was a night of mystery and laughter as our attorneys, who are also stand-up comedians, called our cast members up to the witness stand.  The retrial complete with a twelve- member jury  randomly selected from the dinner guests that night, along with  a judge and two actual attorneys, while  using audience participation throughout the evening, determined that  Lizzie is still “not guilty” in 2004.

Each venue offers a different  authentic "Victorian style" menu.

One participant will go home with a gift certificate for two for one nights lodging in Lizzie's bedroom at the actual Lizzie Borden house. Click here to visit the home now.
