THEY improv is one of the few performance groups in the country specializing in ambush murder mystery dinners. For smaller groups of people, especially those in corporate or family situations where tension exists, an ambush murder mystery is perfect for creating a fun evening that will burst the bubble of tension and be memorable for all in attendance.
Perfect for teambuilding corporate events, meetings and incentives awards, weddings, family gatherings, dinners or charity fundraising!
An ambush murder mystery begins in the guise of some other purpose. One of our more popular is that of our providing a stand-up comedian for the evening. That comedian is there with his girlfriend and having a nice time with the attendees. During cocktails and the beginning of the meal these characters are having a nice time mingling with the crowd. There are other characters as well, such as an assistant who believes himself to be a comedian, who also are outgoing and entertaining people.
During the actual meal, the comedian's wife appears and confronts the couple. Instead of a major argument, the comedian claims that the girlfriend is actually just there to take photos or his make-up artist. Tension builds as audience members struggle with the moral implications of not saying anything. The characters continue to grow the problems between them and walk a fine line to try to cause tension but not to the point that audience members intercede.
The comedian gets up to perform at the beginning of dessert, takes a drink of water and dies. At that point the audience is made aware that it is a murder mystery dinner and not really happening. This is done in a comedic way. At this point the detective takes over and humorously walks through the process of solving the crime.

Even though we have those themes, really we customize to you and can develop any scenario. Our cost can fluctuate greatly as we adjust the number of actors and the various skills that they might have to have to meet the needs of your scenario. Simply discuss these options with our director to learn more.
Likewise, the scripts can be adjusted to bring your audience members under suspicion. They can be interrogated and engaged in a roast type of environment. They can be found innocent by the audience with them getting applause. If you prefer, we can keep them as key suspects by using information known about their past to dig them deeper into the murder mystery.
