A Higher-Caliber Murder Mystery Show
The majority of our clients are educated Corporate personnel from all over the world. Our murder mystery dinner show audiences include CEO’s and management staffs from many Fortune 500 companies. Our corporate clients expect an optimum performance from vendors that they hire. To ensure successful results, we execute our plays with the same enthusiasm and precision of REAL-LIFE murder investigations! Our scripts are a seasoned combination of intelligent plots, clever twists, humor and realistic evidence. In fact, our brand of murder mystery plays include many aspects of actual law enforcement procedures. TV and movie casting agencies recruit some of our actors to appear in productions that include leading actors from movies and television.
Our Murder Mystery Dinner Theater plays are similar to a real homicide investigation. The DETECTIVE cast in the leading role is dynamic and authoritative and he is the play’s lifeblood (pardon the pun). His personality and stature resembles a career detective, yet he is skilled at the art of dead-pan humor. Several decades of performing experience comes into play as he directs and guides the mood of your audience. Your guests will feel comfortable to let fly with their own humorous comments or wisecracks since the detective acts as the catalyst to set the mood.
Full-time, Professional Actors versus Part-Time “Wanna-bees”
Our actors are TRUE professionals – unlike part-time amateurs that other mystery companies describe as ”Professional Actors”. Just because a murder mystery company pays thirty dollars and a free meal to their actors doesn’t put them on the same par as full-time professional actors that earn their living full-time from performing. Nearly all restaurants and hotels that present public shows avoid hiring quality actors in order to preserve their profit margin and save money.
But tight-fisted restaurant managers can prevent a better quality public show from happening. This is especially true with dinner trains, riverboats, wineries, or hotels. Most ticket buyers don’t realize they are getting a cheesy, amateur play for their $80 ticket price! It never occurs to them that an established hotel or restaurant would rather skimp on hiring a better quality show. But this trend may eventually change since more smart customers are beginning to check out “YELP” reviews of mystery shows they want to hire or attend.

“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)
“We received a lot of positive feedback…thank you for doing such a great job!”
Evie Roberts, private party
“You made my birthday memorable…everyone had a great time!”
