What to Expect When You're Expecting... a Murder!

  
  
  
  
  
  

Hello Detectives!

So, you just booked a private party with us... Congratulations! You are on your way to having one of the most entertaining  experiences of your life. Choosing us for your evening of entertainment was the first step to making your upcoming party a killer event! You e-signed your contract with us, filled out the questionnaire, and sorted out all the little details.  I bet you are wondering now, what is going to happen at my party?

Let The Murder Mystery Company help you out with some great clues for setting up your night of mystery.

Let us start with the events before your party begins, shall we? Our actors will show up about 20 to 30 minutes before the start of your party ready to go. They just need a few things.  They will need a space for changing in and out of costumes, an acting space about the size of a pool or air hockey table, preferably against a wall, and a table or empty space to set out suspect binders and costumes.

They won’t take very long to get things into shape before your guests start to arrive.  You can expect the actors to greet each guest as they come in, and mingle with your partygoers before the show starts. They do this in an effort to make your guests feel comfortable, and encourage interaction during the show. If you are feeling frisky, you can tell our troupe members before the show which guests to highlight in the show for maximum entertainment.

The actors will also utilize mingling time to hand out suspect binders, assign characters to your guests, and tell the Rules of Murder.  Guests will have an opportunity to avail themselves of the various props and costume gear brought by the actors. It is important to note that these costume items will include hats, goggles, feather boas, and other accessories. You may want to advise your guests of the theme of your show if they want to dress authentically to that theme. Actual costumes will not be provided.

Your show will take around 2 hours. This is a perfect amount of time for your guests to have an engaging interactive experience. There will be three acts to the play, each one about 20 to 30 minutes long.  In between these acts there will be time set aside for investigation. Your guests will be given the opportunity to bribe each other for clues, and interact with each other and the troupe.

At the end of the show, everyone will be given an opportunity to reveal who they think the murderer is! After the thrilling conclusion of the show, there will be an impromptu award ceremony where certificates will be handed out to your guests. Then the troupe will clean up all their supplies and materials and beat a hasty retreat, leaving your entertainment space as it was when they arrived.

Now, there are a few things to consider when planning for your night of mystery.  Your guests are going to want to be sitting for the majority of the performance, so make sure you have adequate seating for every guest.  Your party should be contained to one room so everyone can see the show. Separating people into rooms means they will be missing important plot and clue reveals that will make it harder for them to discover who the murderer is!

Also, you want to make sure that The Murder Mystery Company is the only event scheduled for the time of your party. Other entertainment will be very distracting to your guests and our actors, making it hard for them to put on a great show. If you want to book other entertainment, please make sure it is before or after the show time you have scheduled with us.

Ok, here is one final tip. Please make sure your guests know what kind of party they are coming to. A surprise murder mystery party sounds awesome in theory, but can be very disconcerting for unsuspecting guests.   Most people have always wanted to do a Murder Mystery, and now they get to come to one with you!

The Murder Mystery Company would like to thank you so much for choosing us for your next big event. Now you are on your way to a thrilling night of mystery, so get ready, and don’t forget your detective hat!
