GALA MURDER MYSTERIES

ENTERTAINING YOUR LARGER EVENTS


The Gala Murder Mystery is the industry standard taken to higher level. While similar to most murder mysteries with a group of actors interacting with your audience starting during cocktails, the Gala also includes additional performers to allow for additional functions to occur around the facility to keep larger numbers engaged. Likewise, with singers, dancers and others, there are plenty of options to maintain the audience's attention. The key is to make certain that we build in enough options to handle your group Of course this is always a balancing act that we are happy to walk you through.

roaring 20's murder mystery parties

The 1920s!

Murder mysteries and the Roaring 20's go together like speakeasies and flasks! Whether it's dressing like flappers or the association with flouting the law, people love the 20s to let loose and have a great time! Our Alderman theme divides the room into North and South Sides and brings on the fun!

mobsters

Mobsters!

Having a collection of mobsters in your midst allows people to have a fun evening of escape from the everyday. We have a collection of themes with mobsters from modern to the 40's and the 20's. Simply call to discuss what kind of party you'd like to have.

millionaire

The Millionaire

We have a variety of scenarios where a millionaire has rubbed people the wrong way. We can easily adjust his source of wealth to not associate him with people in the room. Members of his entourage want him dead and the audience is asked to solve the crime.

spy mystery

The Murder of 008

Our own take on the spy genre has the death of 008. The Spy Who Liked Me was always playing second fiddle to his more famous counterpart and his retirement party is filled with seldom do wells that are equally as second-class. The night is filled with fun and frivolity as the audience solves the case.

wedding theme mystery

Wedding Shows

While we often will perform for weddings, in the case of the gala, we are usually talking about having a show where we have a made up wedding to entertain the crowd. The funny family members entertain the crowd and this can lead to a murder to solve. This can also be done without the murder with just having a fun time in mind.

custom scenarios

Custom Scenarios

Let us come up with something to match your theme. We've done everything from a Versace Murder or masquerade ball, to Gilligan's Island or Hawaii Five-0. Our clients approach us and ask us to create something unique for them and we're more than happy to oblige. Challenge us and let's see what we can develop for your group!


During cocktails, we make people laugh while also getting out an understanding of who the characters are. During dinner, our characters increase the activity. This includes interactions at the tables, arguments that walk around the room, and some moments in front of the audience as a whole. This lets the audience start to understand the relationships, the problems between the characters and what may prove to be the motivation for a murder. After the murder, at dessert, we have a comedy routine where our comedic detective interrogates audience members about what they saw. After getting basic information out through the interrogations, the suspects either go around the room allowing themselves to be interrogated, or we solve the crime on stage using Chief Prosecutors chosen from the audience. The winners receive small prizes so as to not greatly upset those that came close but didn't win.


A customized Gala Murder Mystery show written just for you is a perfect way to have quality entertainment that has your audience laughing. These are perfect to entertain for holiday parties, weddings, family gatherings, season kick-offs, banquets, dinners or charity fundraisers!

coronavirus

WE CARE FOR YOU! We have methods and techniques to operate with a variety of social distancing, PPE safety equipment, and remote sessions. We consult with you to best determine your concerns and needs and take them into account when determining the best way to work with your team.

OUR GREEN COMMITMENT While ultimately we serve our clients in the way that they require, we work hard to reduce the carbon footprint of any event. We recycle, utilize local talent when preferable, and look to leave places better than we found them. When we do travel, we take pains to reduce our impact on the environment.

green events

We provide murder mystery shows throughout the United States, and even beyond! Wherever you might be along the Atlantic Coast, the MidWest, the South, the West Coast, or anywhere else, we stand ready to help your group to have fun. This includes in the big cities, the suburbs, or further outside the urban areas. We do not provide the food or the venue. We come to you and help you to succeed in business without really trying!

food venue

WE COME TO YOU!
We work with groups that are small, medium and large. We also work with people that are in the city, the suburbs, and that are in more rural areas. It never made sense to get our own facilities. We come to a venue of your choosing and this allows you to make your own food and beverage options. In general, you want enough light to see, enough space to move around comfortably, and it should be quiet enough to hear. Everything else can be adjusted to.

WHAT WE NEED TO KNOW

1

WHAT IS THE REASON?

The first step is to determine your needs. This includes potential goals, desires and concerns. Is it more than just entertainment? If you are looking to show appreciation to clients or employees, for example, then we would take one approach. If it is family and friends, we might approach it differently. The more we know about what has already been decided can allow us to narrow the conversation to approaches that interest you.

2

WHAT ARE THE DETAILS? WHERE? WHEN? HOW MANY?

We need to know the city where the event will be as well as what kind of venue might be used. A date, or date range, for when you would like to have this and what time frame you are looking for will help to determine our commitment and availability. Knowing the size of your group, though that will likely just be an estimate, will allow us to choose appropriate options for the performance and have a better feel for the resources required.

3

DO YOU HAVE A BUDGET?

If you know budget limitations, that can allow us to restrict the conversations to those options that will be within your financial constraints. This works in both directions. We don't want to overbuild and propose options that can't be done. Also, we don't want to not provide a large enough of a show to achieve the results that will exceed your expectations.
