|ABOUT THE MURDER MYSTERY|
This event will be a comedy. The focus is on the fun suspects, understanding their crazy clues and solving whodunnit. The point is to have your guests laughing from the moment we begin. There will be no mistaking this for an actual crime scene and your guests will not ever be confused or frightened at any time.
|HOW DOES THE EVENT PROCEED?|
Picture this... your employees have gathered for a team building event, company party or employee appreciation night. They are chatting and enjoying one another's company when suddenly a stranger comes into the party and falls to the floor dead. Oh my! That turns the party into a crime scene and your guests are told they may not leave the premises. An investigation will take place and your guests will be asked to help. But whodunnit? Was it one of the waitstaff? A stranger? Perhaps one of the employees? Your guests will be the armchair detectives searching for clues and interrogating suspects. By the end of the event, a winner (or group of winners) will be recognized for having used their deductive reasoning skills to come up with a correct response. They will also have the distinct honor of putting handcuffs on the killer and taking away the Super Sleuth Award.
Whodunnit for Hire includes everything to operate the successful murder mystery entertainment. You will be able to sit back, relax and solve whodunnit with the rest of your employees. We will handle it all including coordinating with the wait staff, giving instructions to your employees, and ensuring that the event flows smoothly.
Additionally, we will take several photographs during the mystery party and will share a link with your employees so that you may download, save and share those photos for free.
|WHAT'S NOT INCLUDED?|

Do you want to keep this event a surprise? Love it! Yes. You can do that.
You get to choose your own "dead guy"! What?! Yes! This role is very easy and fun and is the star of the show. We recommend that you ask the “boss.” He or she will return after their big dying scene as themselves and try to solve whodunnit with their employees. They will not miss a thing.
