The year was 1988. Compact discs has just outsold vinyl records for the first time. Wrigley Field finally added lights for night games. And across from the historic Fox Theater on Peachtree Street, Agatha’s A Taste of Mystery opened for its first dinner theater performance!
For 32 years Agatha’s A Taste of Mystery has been entertaining audiences with our unique comedy murder mysteries. We’ve been forced to change locations, battled personal tragedies, and even weathered the recession of 2007. Through it all we have been able to persevere, thanks to you, our beloved patrons and fans.
Through the years, Agatha’s has showcased many actors who’ve gone on to star in acclaimed and cult television shows like “Archer”, “Doc McStuffins”, Key and Peele, Stranger Things, Ozark, Army Wives, and countless other movies and shows. We’ve also been a mainstay for entertaining celebrities when they come into town, with stars like Evangeline Lily, comedienne and Oscar nominee Monique, some of the housewives of Atlanta, and Hugh Jackman to name a few. We’ve also hosted many important governmental agencies when they’ve needed a laugh, most notably the honorable Senator John Lewis.
It has been our pleasure to serve each and every one of you and to deliver hilarious and interactive shows with an array of some of Atlanta’s finest talent and dedicated wait staff. For the past three decades, we have been motivated by one purpose: give audiences an evening of laughter and good food that they’ll never forget!
In these unprecedented times, Agatha’s A Taste of Mystery is coming to you, our patrons and fans, because we desperately need your help to prevent this Atlanta theater institution from closing its doors.
Our goal is $120,000. Any amount you may be able to spare will help and be greatly appreciated! We know with your help we can hit this goal and open our doors once more when the time is right.
As a small business located in the heart of downtown Atlanta, our costs are quite high. Here is a small rundown of what your donation will be helping us provide.
Rent & Utilities for 7 months: $80,000
Redesign cost for upgraded safety and guidelines and compliance: $6000
Employee retention: $30,000
Thank you so Much!
The Entire Agatha’s Staff and Crew!
