murder mystery dinners
When murder is on the menu, you’re in for an evening of fun. Hosts and their guests assume the roles of suspicious characters and solve the mystery with the help of a coordinator. Each play comes with a party planner, invitations, costume and menu suggestions, clues and much more! Everyone's a suspect when murder is on the menu. A trip, party, dinner, barbecue or other event turns to tragedy when a guest is murdered. No one knows which of the other party guests committed the crime. Clues will be uncovered and motives revealed as you and your guests search for the killer.
WHAT HAPPENS AT YOUR MURDER MYSTERY PLAY?
Our Murder Mystery Dinner Party events are ideal for parties of at least six and up to twelve participating guests. Some of your guests will be the suspects, one which is the perpetrator of the murder, which took place in time before the event. During the party, your guests will be given clues and encouraged to collect information about the other suspects to solve the murder.
Throughout the party, certain events will occur that will move the story along. When you book an event with us, we will provide a murder mystery coordinator to make sure things go smoothly, answer any questions you may have, conduct the pacing of the event and dinner. The identity of the murderer will be revealed at the party’s conclusion.
CAN I BE A SUSPECT, YOU ASK?
Yes! All of the suspects are played by guests, even the murderer! As a suspect, you will be questioned by the other participants about your relationship with the victim, your possible motive, and your whereabouts at the time of the crime.
CAN I PLAY A ROLE WITHOUT BEING A SUSPECT?
No, not a speaking role. Some characters are friends and acquaintances of the suspects, (other invited guests) and think they have vital information about the players that may or may not be essential to solving the murder. These guests are not characters with a part in the play, but are encouraged to mingle (before the play and during dinner) with all the guests and divulge the information they have.
DO YOU HAVE TO PLAY A ROLE AS A CHARACTER?
Not if you don’t want to. You can interact with the characters as yourself, trying to solve the crime along with everyone else.
HOW LONG IS AN EVENT?
Generally between three and four hours long.
ARE OUR EVENTS APPROPRIATE FOR CHILDREN?
The mystery scenarios contain a fair dose of murder and mayhem, including the possibility of secret affairs. We do encourage the participation of teenagers and young adults, but the event probably isn’t suitable for children under 13.
DO WE PROVIDE THE FOOD AND THE VENUE?
Yes, we can cater the event and recommend/suggest venues. We have a detailed discussion upon booking with our clients concerning their specific menus, decor, music, costumes, photo ops and provide other suggestions related to their specific play/event. Murder Mystery packages include fine dining, a great and funny mystery, and a coordinator.
