When invited to a Murder Mystery Company event, many people wonder exactly what they have gotten themselves into. Hopefully, this will alleviate any concerns people might have and get them prepared to have an amazing experience!
The basic formula for a murder mystery party is actually pretty simple. We bring out our highly trained improv actors to come set the scene for a murder that you, the guest, will have the next two hours to solve. Many of the guests at the event will be chosen to play the parts of suspects, but EVERYONE gets to help solve the crime.
Each murder mystery experience has a specific theme. The murder can take place anywhere from a 1920s speakeasy or a 1980s rock concert to a modern day gathering of billionaires. This gives you, the guest, the chance to play dress up and immerse yourself into the world of the mystery. It is certainly not required, but can really help if you, or someone you know, is a bit shy. Costumes can be very liberating and really add to the experience.
Some people are worried about being chosen as a suspect. It could not be easier. Our actors will have costume items selected for you, and everything you need to know will be given to you in a binder. Our actors will clue you in when it is time for your character to do something. The most you will ever have to do is read a line or two out loud and answer some questions. Our team won’t let you fail! Our number-one priority is that everyone has fun, and we make sure that our chosen characters are given all the tools needed to have a worry-free experience.
If you are not chosen as a specific character, there is still a lot for you to do! You get to look at evidence and bribe characters for clues before figuring out exactly who did it. There is nothing quite like the thrill of having all of the clues suddenly fall into place and seeing the picture clearly. The “A-ha!” moment is absolutely magical.
All in all, a mystery brought to you by The Murder Mystery Company is a worry-free, hassle-free experience. All you need to do is show up and be prepared to have an incredibly memorable night!
