Q?

Do you have a Virtual Mystery?

A.

Yes! We've just developed a New Virtual Mystery!
We are very excited about this. Are you looking to do a fun activity on line with your team? Do you want guests to participate while sitting on their own couch or at their own dining room table? Are you looking for a fun and interactive virtual game for a private group? This is it! Book the Virtual Mystery. Regardless of whether you have ten friends, fifty family members or eighty employees they will all have a blast. And you'll be proud knowing you've put seven actors to work at this very trying time. The introductory cost is $699, the activity takes an hour and fifteen minutes and you pick the date and time. It is easy to book, just send an email with the purpose of the event (perhaps an on line company party, virtual birthday party or virtual team building event) and the date and time you'd like it to begin. The introductory price will be available for a limited time and is due to go up to $1299. So book it now to get the savings. And thank you in advance for helping. We appreciate the support.

Q?

What is the cost to have my own murder mystery party?

A.

The cost to have your own murder mystery party is $75 per person if you host your event at one of our locations. This includes the dinner, the entertainment, the tax and the gratuity. You must have a minimum of 30 guests. There is a per person savings for fifty or more guests. The event will last three hours with the first hour being a welcome reception for guest arrivals and mingling.

Q?

Where can I host my murder mystery party?

A.

The following locations in Maryland, USA can host a mystery party at the $75/person inclusive rate. If you are in an alternate location, call me, I may be able to make it happen or could make a recommendation.

Q?

What is the cost without food? At an alternate location?

A.

If you have set up a private party at a restaurant and are looking for entertainment only, the cost for the murder mystery entertainment depends on if you'd like a team of seven actors to entertain your guests or if you'd like your guests to be the ones accused of the crime. In either case there is a flat fee for the murder mystery entertainment. The production format (a play with seven actors) is $2500. The party format (a coordinated game) is $1250. You choose the date, time and place. I (or my team) come to you. In either case you will worry only about feeding your guests, I (or my team) will ensure everyone is laughing and engaged for the duration of the event. A murder mystery with all of the necessary props, costuming, awards, backdrop, mystery mood music, etc. is included in the price of both the production format or the party format. The reason for the drastic savings with the party format is that your friends and family will be the ones accused of the crime. Both formats are a blast, it is simply a matter of your preference for your event. Do you want actors to be the suspects or do you want your friends to be the suspects? Actors is $2500, your friends is $1250.

New third option - the virtual mystery. The cost for a virtual mystery is on sale right now for $699. This is an on-line version of the production format and you'll be hiring seven actors to entertain. You should plan an hour and fifteen minutes for this activity. The cost is a flat $699 regardless of the number of participants. At this time only the production format is available in the virtual format.

Q?

I’d like to host a Team Building Event. 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. Yes. And yes.

Q?

Do you have themed storylines? I want my guests to come in costume.

A.

Many of my storylines are written with a theme and I ask that guests come in costume to help set the scene.

Q?

How long does it take? What should I expect?

A.

It takes three hours with the first hour being a welcome reception. Use this timeline as a guideline.

  • 06:00     Doors Open for Guest Arrivals, Check-Ins, Mingling, Welcome Reception, Announcements, Etc.
  • 07:00     Salads Pre-Set, Guests Seated, Mystery Begins

Expect your guests to have a blast and be engaged and laughing from the moment the mystery party begins. And expect to sit back, relax and play with your team. Once you've booked with Whodunnit for Hire you're work is done.

Q?

What is included?

A.

If you are booking the $75/person mystery at one of our locations, everything for the murder mystery is included, a three course dinner is included (salad, entree, dessert), tax and gratuity is included. If you are booking entertainment only (production format $2500 or party format $1250) then everything is included for the murder mystery. You need only worry about food.

Q?

Will I incur other costs?

A.

If you'd like to include beverages, appetizers or have a cocktail hour that will incur an additional fee. If you have guests on their own for drinks there won't be any additional fees to you.

Q?
