“A Higher-Caliber Murder Mystery Show”
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 shows all the way back to the early 1970’s! Our scripts are a seasoned combination of intelligent plots, humor and logical forensics 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.

Our Former Corporate Clients
Full-time, Professional Actors VS. Part-Time “Wanna-bees”
All 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 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 mystery dinner clients are now checking with YELP. Yet, websites like GroupON or Living Social fight back and sponsor their own reviews online which are actually fake, positive reviews written by clever staff members. They do this because their have suffered high volumes of negative YELP reviews over the years. As of late, they are slowly regaining a footing on YELP by even inserting FAKE YELP reviews as well. They pay full-time internet writers to keep this false image going so ticket buyers are not scared off!

“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
