Q?

I want to host a murder mystery for my private event. What is the cost?

A.

The cost depends on the type of show (Production vs Party Format) and the number of guests at your party.

  • 150+ Guests:         $4500 - Production Format
  • 100 - 150 Guests:  $3500 - Production Format
  • 65 - 99 Guests:      $2500 - Production Format
  • 33 - 64 Guests:      $1625 - Party | Team Building Format
  • 00 - 32 Guests:      $1250 - Party | Team Building Format

Q?

What is the difference between the Production Format and the Party | Team Building Format?

A.

The Production Format is a full team of actors entertaining your guests. The Party | Team Building Format is a game and your employees or guests play the the suspects accused of the crime.

Q?

Could I book the Production format for fewer than 64 guests?

A.

You may hire the Production Format for any number of guests. The Party | Team Building Format is recommended for no more than 64 guests (or eight tables of eight).

Q?

Where should I host my murder mystery party?

A.

You choose the place and I come to you. The private room of your favorite restaurant works best. Any space large enough for your guests would work. I recommend the following locations in Maryland:

Q?

Could I keep this a surprise from my staff? Could I tell you the guests I’d like accused? Could I get a customized storyline?

A.

Yes! You may keep this a surprise. You need only tell your guests that you've hired an entertainer for your party. That's it. I recommend that you allow guests to volunteer as suspects rather than choosing people in advance. And yes, the premise of the Party | Team Building Format will be your event.

Q?

Do you have themed events?

A.

Yes. And we are writing new mysteries all the time. Check out our THEMES PAGE.

Q?

How does a mystery proceed? How long does it take? Should we plan a meal?

A.

You should allow three hours for your event and plan it around a seated meal. Use this timeline as a guideline.

  • 06:00     Doors Open for Guest Arrivals, Mingling, Photos, Reception
  • 07:00     Salads Served, Guests Seated, Mystery Begins
  • 07:30     Entrées Served followed by Interrogations
  • 08:30     Desserts Served followed by Wrap-Up, Curtain Call and Awards
  • 09:00     End of Mystery

Q?

What is included?

A.

The customized murder mystery, the photography services (all photos can be downloaded by your guests for free), event coordination and everything needed for the entertainment (i.e. notebooks, pencils, props, costuming, awards, etc.). If you take care of the food, I'll handle everything else. You can just sit back, relax and try to solve whodunnit with your guests.

Q?

Will I incur other costs?

A.

Yes, I kindly ask that you include me (for the party format) or my full team of actors (for the production format) in your meal and parking count.

Q?

Will you help promote our mystery?

A.

Yes. I am happy to help sell tickets on your behalf. To see the way in which I sell tickets, click here: Whodunnit for Hire on Eventbrite. Alternatively, I am happy to create an image for use with Evite (or similar) for private events.

Q?

Why should we book with Whodunnit for Hire?

A.

My goal, as owner of Whodunnit for Hire, is to offer the very best murder mystery entertainment. To that end, I care about three things. One; I care that your guests tell you it was amazing and that they had an incredible time. Two; I care that you are able to relax and enjoy your own party. Three; I care about my storyline. The puzzle of whodunnit is important to me. I will create a mystery which is solvable and based on clues.

Q?

What if we found another murder mystery company that is cheaper?

A.

Don't risk it. You have one chance to make a great impression with this event. Your guests are important and you want them singing your praises. Need more? Check out the Reviews of Whodunnit for Hire.

Q?

What is the Booking Policy?

A.

Your entertainment is confirmed once the invoice has been paid. For events over $2500 the payment may be broken in two, 50% due to confirm the date, 50% due one month in advance of the date.

Q?

What is the Cancellation Policy?

A.

Your payment is non-refundable. However, you may change the date of your event with thirty or more days notice and there is no penalty for a postponement due to inclement weather. If there is a change, the new date must be within the following ten months.

Q?

I want to book Whodunnit for Hire because I want the best. But I’m on a budget.

A.

Let me know your budget and we'll talk.

Q?

I’d like to organize a Fundraising Event. Do you do those? How much can my organization expect to make?

A.

Yes. I'd be delighted to put together a fundraiser for your organization and you can anticipate making between $2250 and $3750 if you sell the recommended 15 tables with ten guests per table (150 seats). Be sure your location has six-foot rounds.
