A Holiday murder mystery dinner hosted by Mr Charles Dickens, Esquire. Lots of comedy. music, audience participation and ghostly apparitions. Each table works as a team to solve the murder of Jacob Barley.
“Barley was dead to begin with, of that there can be no doubt.”
THE PLOT: It is Christmas Eve 1867 and your group is gathered to celebrate the Holidays. Renowned British author Charles Dickens, Esquire, who is on a tour of North America to promote his new book, has agreed to give a reading of one of his short stories. All is going well until a ghostly apparition dragging long chains and wailing like a banshee enters the room and disrupts the festivities.
“I am the ghost of Jacob Barley, murdered one year ago this very night, and I shall not rest until my murderer has been brought to justice!”
Great, you think, but can’t we eat first?!
Who the Dickens is the Killer? has all the same ingredients as our other interactive murder mysteries including a cast of zany characters that perform between the courses of your meal interacting directly with the audience at their tables. The cast is lead by a stand-up comedian who plays the role of Charles Dickens and it is Mr. Dickens’ job to keep the plot moving, keep firing the jokes, and keep the audience on the trail of the killer. There is also a musician, Mr. Bob Scratchit. When Bob isn’t dropping enigmatic clues, he’s either playing background music or he’s getting everyone to sing a lively version of “Jingle Bells”.

Til Death Do Us PartSep 27 2013

A comedy murder mystery dinner show with a wedding theme. Each table works as team to solve the mystery. This mystery may be performed anytime of year but it is most popular around Valentines Day and in the Spring during wedding season. We have even performed this mystery at actual wedding receptions and once at the wedding ceremony itself.
THE PLOT: The mystery takes place at the wedding of George and Martha and your group are the friends and family of the bride and groom. We have all the usual wedding characters including the happy couple, the in-laws, the Wedding Planner and the Minister, but we have also thrown in a few oddball characters to liven things up. The mystery begins the moment the guests arrive at the reception with a DJ, musician or band (depending on your budget, the size of your group and your preference) playing tasteful background music. What the guests don’t know is the DJ is just the first of the suspects they will meet. All seems normal until some uninvited characters crash the reception and things just get wilder and wilder culminating in gun shots. Don’t worry, the victim is one of our actors, not one of your guests.
HOW IT WORKS: The mystery runs the length of the meal plus one hour during which time your guests are both implicated in the murder and publicly (and humorously) interrogated by Detective David Oscar Adams as witnesses The mystery ends with all of your guests getting a chance to solve the crime and one table being declared the super sleuths. There is plenty of comedy, music and audience participation. The zany suspects (our actors) interact with your guests throughout giving your guests plenty of opportunity to become part of the show.
CUSTOMIZATION: If you are a wedding couple and you are purchasing this mystery for your actual reception then we will customize the mystery. We have you complete a questionnaire weeks before the wedding telling us about the two of you and your guests. Using this information we then write a customized mystery all about you, your family and friends.
- Live musician or band
- Dance music after the mystery
DURATION: The length of a meal plus one hour (about 3 hours)
SPACE REQUIREMENTS: A private dining area large enough to accommodate your guests and a second room where the performers can change.
GROUP SIZE: 50 – 250 persons

This fun, interactive murder mystery is filled with psychics. So why didn’t any of them see the murder coming?! This mystery can be played anytime of year but with its supernatural theme it’s especially popular around Halloween. Your group works in teams to solve the mystery.
A fortune telling party? What a delightful idea! Well, until one of the fortune tellers gives a chilling prediction of murder! It isn’t long before her macabre prediction comes true and the body hits the floor! This is a job for psychic detective Will Dunn. Other agencies may use a medium, but your guy is Will Dunn! Unfortunately Detective Dunn’s partner has been called away on another important case… an Elvis sighting! So Will will need your help to follow up leads, track down clues, and solve this “paranormal” mystery. Perfect! Because let’s face it… your group is anything but “normal”.
Play Mystic for Me is interactive murder mystery with a cast of zany characters, a challenging mystery, and lots of leads and clues that will require your group to work in teams to solve the case. The cast is lead by a stand-up comedian who plays the role of detective and keeps the investigation and laughs going. It also includes suspects who are fortune tellers who read palms, tea leaves, Tarot cards and the bumps on your head! One of the fortune tellers is Billy Ray Psychic, the singing soothsayer (say that three times quickly) who entertains your group with his musical abilities. The fun never stops from the time your group arrives until the killer is hauled away.
How it works: Play Mystic for Me has two versions:
1. The Dinner Theater Version This version is designed to be performed during a meal. Each table works as a team to solve the mystery. Throughout dinner the characters move between tables dropping clues, interacting with your group and keeping everyone entertained. After dinner the tables are given a chance to submit their solutions and a winning team is declared. The mystery runs the length of the meal plus one hour (approx. 2 1/2 — 3 hours in total), and includes plenty of comedy, interaction and music.
2. The Mystery Game Version This version is like a live game of clue. Your group aren’t watching a mystery, they IN the mystery! Your group is gathered together and a murder happens in their midst! After that your group is divided into teams and they must move from place to place looking for the suspects and questioning them. Once time has elapsed all your guests are gathered together again to learn the identity of the killer and to announce the winning team. This mystery can be played in a mansion, on a boat, at a resort, in a museum or any venue with multiple locations where your group will search for the suspects. If you wish to add a meal to this mystery multiple food stations work best. This mystery game runs about 3 hours.

The 1920’s atmosphere is set by a Dixieland band. As your guests arrive they need to give the password to the gangster at the door (you pick the password and tell your guests in advance). Of course, with all the unsavory characters packin’ heaters it ain’t long before someone gets shot. Shortly thereafter, Eliot Mess and the Untouchables raid the joint. Is Flossy the flapper really as vacuous as she seems? Is Big Mugsy really big? Why exactly is Eliot Mess untouchable? Is it contagious? Your group will need to do a lot of investigating to find the answer to these questions and… Oh yes! Who shot Mumbles? And do we really care?
HOW IT WORKS: This 1920’s murder mystery is designed to take place during a meal. It starts during cocktails, continues through the meal and ends about an hour after desserts have been served. It includes an opening scene with the murder, a closing scene where the audience tries to solve the mystery, and a lot of audience participation, music and interaction with the characters throughout the show.
DURATION: The length of the meal plus an hour (approximately 3 hours)
GROUP SIZE: 70 – 250
SPACE REQUIREMENTS: A private dining area large enough to accommodate your group and a performance area large enough for a 3 piece band. For groups over 150 we request a riser or stage 16′ x 16′ or larger for the band and performers. You may also wish to include a dance floor for dancing during and after the mystery.
