These exceptional companies help make the San Francisco Bay Area as well as California a great place to live, work and play.” (Direct quote by the San Francisco Review Board news release.)

We are proud of our long established reputation for producing the best Murder Mystery Shows in California. This is supported by 1) the awards we have won, 2) hundreds of referral letters and testimonials we have been sent from past clients, 3) newspaper reviews, and 4) YELP reviews.
We invite you to click on the small YELP logo at the left to see our CURRENT reviews of shows we have performed. When YELP corrected a typographical error on our City location a couple of years ago, they goofed up and deleted 20 of our previous YELP reviews that had accumulated over 9 years. (Yelp’s policy is not to restore reviews even though the reviews were accidentally deleted by YELP personnel.)
A Higher-Caliber Murder Mystery Show
The majority of our clients are Corporate personnel from all over the world. Our murder mystery dinner show sees audiences comprised of CEO’s, top management personnel and all levels of management from Silicon Valley companies and many from the Fortune 500. It is no understatement to say that our corporate clients have a right to expect an optimum performance from vendors they hire.
To answer our clients’ demand, we are one of the very few entertainment companies that can boast a stellar history of highly rated shows and events dating all the way back to the early 1970′s! Our scripts are a seasoned combination of intelligent plots, humor and logical evidence. The actors performing in our shows are well-established in their television and movie careers, and we are honored to have achieved a highly respectful stature among other actors in the movie and television industry.
CLICK ON red logo box ABOVE to read a portion of negative YELP reviews about our competitors.
The DETECTIVE actor in our leading role (Scott Ebright) is dead-on believable and authoritative as he guides your guests through the various stages of the plot. His likeable personality reflects the stature of a true career detective. His mastery of “dead-pan humor” keeps the guests amused and alert as they venture forward into the mystical intrigue of solving “Whodunit?”

Full-time, Professional Actors versus Part-Time “Wanna-bees”
All our actors are TRUE professionals – unlike the part-time hobbyists that other mystery companies use. Other mystery companies may describe their personnel as “Professional Actors”, but just because a person is paid $50.00 and given a free dinner doesn’t put them on the same par as REAL professional actors that earn their full-time living from their acting talents. But…they cannot be entirely to blame when most restaurant managers promoting mystery dinners actively seek out the cheapest show they can hire in order to gain a higher profit.
This tight budget attitude is often true with operators of dinner trains, riverboats, wineries, or hotels. And sadly, on the receiving end, most ticket buyers don’t even realize they are buying a cheesy play for their $80 ticket price! It never occurs to them that fine dining establishments all too often will skimp on hiring a better show. We hope that this trend eventually changes since people are now checking with “YELP” and “Groupon” reviews before buying tickets.

“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!”
