The majority of our clients are Corporations with personnel from all over the world. Audiences at our corporate shows are comprised of CEO’s, top management personnel and all departmental levels of administration, marketing, sales, training, and human resources. These Silicon Valley companies and Fortune 500 firms demand an optimum performance from vendors they hire, and on this level, we always meet and exceed their expectations.  

We are one of a very few national entertainment companies that can boast a perfect track record of highly rated productions starting with music tribute shows all the way back in the 1970’s!  While performing murder mystery dinner shows for the past 20 years, our scripts have proven to win over audiences with a seasoned combination of intelligent plots, humor and logical forensics evidence. The actors performing in our shows are established television and film professionals, not amateur local theater actors who perform as a hobby. We are blessed and honored to have achieved a highly respected company among peers in the movie and television industry.

Full-time, Professional Actors VS. Part-Time “Wanna-bees”

Actors Photo GalleryAll our actors are TRUE professionals – unlike the part-time hobbyists that other mystery companies use. Other mystery companies claim to use “Professional Actors”, but they pay their actors only $30 – $50 plus a free plate of food. They are not on the same par as REAL professional actors that earn their full-time living from their acting talents.  But…these companies with less caliber actors keep certain restaurant managers happy with bargain basement pricing. Unfortunately, most restaurants that advertise murder mystery dinners shop for and hire  the cheapest actors  they can find in order to earn higher profits.

This tight budget attitude permeates through to operators of dinner trains, riverboats, wineries, casinos and hotels. But sadly, the ticket buying public doesn’t even realize they are never going to see the best mystery dinner shows when they pay for their $80 ticket price!  It never occurs to them that restaurant managers ALWAYS skimp on paying for a better show with top notch actors and scripts. They only care about their profit if they promote a mystery dinner event. You would think they learn their lesson when reading all the negative reviews they receive on YELP. But in recent years, unreliable websites like GroupON or Living Social have figured out how to avoid a rotten reputation on YELP by inventing THEIR OWN BRAND of online reviews which are actually fake, glowing reviews written by their own employee staffs. Best advice is for you to avoid any of these slick marketing restaurant websites – especially since they create their own counterfeit reviews.

Our clients have written to us saying…

“You guys did a fantastic job with our group!” Marilyn Merydith, Intel

“Thank you for being a part of our [television] show. You guys were a great addition!” KPIX Television, CBS Network, San Francisco

“The actors are top notch since they regularly appear in movies and TV shows. They mingled well with our 40 guests, and they were definitely the hit of the party! The play and script was surprisingly believeable and realistic. It wasn’t way over the top or too cheesy. It was funny at the right points, but then serious at other points which made the drama so intriguing.” Dennis Yardley, Yelp Review (San Francisco)

“Our team had a lot of fun…the meeting was incredibly effective… because of the murder mystery play.” Cheryll O’Mara, Intel Corp.

“Detective Schlitt — looked and acted the part with a commanding stage presence. He has a booming voice and is able to keep everyone riveted in full attention. Note to hecklers or people who are talking at their tables— you will be sorry! Detective Schlitt is merciless and funny. ” Matt Cohen, Auburn, CA (Guest at public show in Loomis, CA)
