The Ambush Murder: Surprise! 
An ambush murder mystery begins in the guise of some other purpose. One of our more popular is that of our providing a stand-up comedian for the evening. That comedian is there with his girlfriend and having a nice time with the partygoers. During cocktails and the beginning of the meal these characters are having a nice time mingling with the crowd. There are other characters as well, such as an assistant who believes himself to be a comedian, who also are outgoing and entertaining people.

Heightened Reality! 
During the actual meal, the comedian's wife appears and confronts the couple. Instead of a major argument, the comedian claims that the girlfriend is actually just there to take photos or his make-up artist. Tension builds as audience members struggle with the moral implications of not saying anything. The characters continue to grow the problems between them and walk a fine line to try to cause tension but not to the point that audience members intercede. 

The comedian gets up to perform at the beginning of dessert, takes a drink of water and dies. At that point the audience is made aware that it is a murder mystery dinner and not really happening. This is done in a comedic way. At this point the detective takes over and comedically walks through the process of solving the crime. 


This is only one example of a scenario. Many times we customize specifically for your group. Some more common examples include:
Comedian Carnage - The example above. This can also be done as a game show host or a motivational speaker.
The Corporate Takeover - our people act as if they're a company poised to takeover yours
Teambuilding Gone Amok - this is a team building workshop that leads to one of the facilitators getting killed. It's a great way to provide team building with them later feeling it was just part of the entertainment
The Bride and the Bartender - a wedding where the bartender was a former boyfriend of the bride
Even though we have those themes, really we customize to you and can develop any scenario. Our cost can fluctuate greatly as we adjust the number of actors and the various skills that they might have to have to meet the needs of your scenario. Simply discuss these options with our director to learn more.
