2023 Holiday Murder Mysteries

Eat Drink and be Murdered!

The Finch family has always loved the holidays - especially Stephen Finch, who has always been known as "Mr. Christmas." In fact, this is the first Christmas in years that Stephen is not working his job in middle management at a local theme park! However this year is going to be extra special.

For the first time in 5 years, the entire family will be together for the almost world famous Finch Family Ugly Sweater Party on Christmas Eve! Noel is home from boarding school, Grandma has recovered from her surgery and even Uncle Sammy has made parole. This is sure to be the merriest of Christmases for Stephen and Monica as the gang is all together again! What could possibly go wrong?

Unfortunately for one family member this Christmas will be a silent night as visions of murder dance in their heads!

Jingle Bell Ruckus

Twas a week before Christmas

And in Santa's shop

All Elves were meeting

They'd been working nonstop.

Marley, their leader was a cranky old chap

And the rest of his elves were sick of his crap

As the big day grows closer

The elves prove they're skilled

But at this elfin' meeting someone gets killed.

About Us


Something New Studio is located in Lake County, FL. A long time dream of owner Jim Quinlan who wants to bring experiences in all arts to those who may not have tried them otherwise.

The business formed in January 2020 and signed a lease for an a absolutely perfect space in the historic district of downtown Eustis in February 2020. We quickly began build out of our theatre and dance space in order to use it to support many arts related program and give the community an opportunity to learn AND teach Something New. The excitement built quickly as we formed partnership with The Historic State Theatre, Showtime USA and other local creatives. We looked forward to sharing everyone’s talents with a projected opening date of April 1st!

Enter a global pandemic... Just weeks before our Studio was set to open with a calendar of classes Covid-19 was sprung on the nation and our plan to bring groups of people together for the love of the arts needed to be put on hold.

As restrictions eased and we learned how to be safe in this new world we found new and exciting ways to bring the arts to our community.  From our many different introductory classes and programs to our troupe of professional actors we bring the arts alive!


Today, Something New Studio has focused their efforts to become Central Florida's PREMIERE traveling professional immersive entertainment troupe.  Our professional entertainers will develop a personal experience for your restaurant and or private group that will grow to be stories of legend!  In addition our children's theatre program makes your child a star, not Tree #4 is an overly expensive musical theatre program.  Check out our kids drama club and camps to help your young performer thrive!

In March 2023, we relocated to our new headquarters space on Highland Ave in Mount Dora.  We are excited to see what the future holds for Something New!
