Murder Mysteries

This site has been created to help you make your next birthday party special with our murder mysteries to entertain your friends and family.

Having your friends engaged in trying to solve a comedic quandry can get people working together and bonding. This is true of murder mystery dinners as well as escape rooms, which we can also perform.

These take several forms including some that use people from the audience as characters, actors or situations. We can tell the people ahead of time or ambush them with it at the event. With each, though, on one level or another, one of the concepts is if they're talking about us, they're not talking about you. This reduces negative rumor mongering. Below is information about our birthday party murder mystery dinners.

Birthday Party Murder Mysteries

Entertaining Through Engaging Minds

THEY improvHire THEY improv for a customized show just for you. Yes, the perfect capper for any birthday party is a customized murder mystery dinner show or lunch written just for the group and venue involved.

Actors from THEY improv come together and set up a murder mystery dinner or luncheon that the audience helps to solve. Interacting directly with the participants of the birthday party, partygoers help examine clues, evaluate witnesses and alibis, choose from a variety of suspects and determine the culprit.

Once THEY begin, your audience will meet and talk with the crazy cast of characters, witness a crime and then work to solve the crime, all without CSI's crime lab! Laugh along with our professional, but bizarre, crime solver, as audience members help him interrogate suspects and work his way through the winding maze of clues. This often makes audience members shine, which is perfect for birthday parties, leaving the celebrant with a sense of being appreciated.

THEY improv is one of the only companies in the country that provides 'ambush' murder mystery dinners. These are birthday parties where the audience is NOT aware that a show is taking place. Using a variety of techniques, THEY improv provides uncomfortable situations that get audience members to talk to each other and compare notes as they are confronted by awkward situations. For example, one of our cast members might be at your party with his girlfriend and his wife shows up. Note: We let the audience know it's a show at the right time. We don't want anyone to actually call the police!

The Frick & Frack Show is a new development that we've made and involves two detectives, Detective Frick and Detective Frack, who investigate an improvised whodunit while directly involving your audience members in the crime. Audience members are introduced to the idea that they are to accept any facts that are given by the detectives as fact. Any questions they are asked, they are to make up any details that they like and those details will be incorporated in the show. No two shows are alike and thus the final answers are truly a mystery.

accusedLikewise, the scripts can be adjusted to bring your audience members under suspicion of being the culprits. Information known about their past can be intertwined to simply dig them deeper into the birthday party murder mystery.

For small groups where you simply want to get partygoers to talk to one another, to keep costs down, we have Clue Parties. This has everyone with a character and they all talking to each other and sharing information to determine the culprit in their midst.

For slightly larger groups, say from 30-100, we have the Cambridge Solution where we have a few of your people as characters and they go from group to group that works together as a team to build a case against one of the suspects. This is also a great way to get the celebrant to speak to everyone at the party.

And even if we don't know anything about the audience ahead of time, our ambush shows can completely immerse the audience in the midst of the mayhem until they realize that it's a show. This causes the audience to fully become involved in the event and the things that they have seen influence their solving of the crime because our actors can adjust to changing circumstances.

badgeThese shows can be provided not only in the evening, but also make a great idea for a lunch or at other times during the day that might not even be around a meal. This goes well with ambush scenarios when our people are supposed to be there for another purpose. Let us discuss various ideas that can work for you.
