A typical itinerary for a Three-Hour Murder
The host keeps the event on track
Guests are greeted
by their Murder Mystery Host, given guests packs, mingle, and get to know
each other. Half way through the reception the "first murder"
Police are called
and a Homicide Detective (who just happened to be in the neighborhood)
arrives and starts a homicide investigation.
Various clues are uncovered, some implicating the guests.
The detective motivates and informs
continues throughout dinner with the Detective continually working the room,
interrogating and implicating many of the guests (all done with a lot of
Clues are found by
the guests and suspects are narrowed down.
Towards the end of
dinner "another murder" is staged and again our detective will
jump into action.
More clues are
found and the investigation and humorous interrogations continue.
About this time
everyone thinks they know who the murderer is. That's when we bump that
person off. "Murder #3!"
Final clues are
submitted into evidence.
Guests are then
told they have 20 minutes to come up with a solution (this can be done as
individual answers or team answers can be submitted).
The participants are challenged to solve the mystery
After the Host has collected all the answers the Detective miraculously figures the whole thing
out. This is where the final scene is played out between the Detective and
the remaining actors.
The Detective, logically and categorically, solves the crimes, makes his arrests and the
actors all exit to wild applause.
The Host then reads the winning solutions starting with the funniest answers and ending
with the best answer.
Actors are introduced, prizes are awarded.
A typical one-night murder mystery event
staged for 100 people will run approximately $2,000. Since each client has
different requirements and there are many variables, all quotes are handled on
an individual basis. Beyond 100 guests, the per person cost declines, so for
example, for 200 people the cost would be approximately $2,500.
