Straight Murder Mystery Dinners

The industry standard bring 4-7 actors interacting with your crowd leading up to a murder and a comedic investigation. Meet and talk with the crazy cast of characters, witness a crime and then work together to solve it!


Ambush Mysteries

We create a scenario where the audience is unaware that a murder mystery show is taking place. Up until the dead body hits the floor, they think it is really happening. The relief lets them break loose and have a great time!


Participation Mysteries

With both Dartmouth Plan Mysteries, where everyone at your party is a character, and Cambridge Solution Mysteries, where we use roughly one participant from your group per table, we have great interactive mysteries to get your people directly involved!

Wedding Shows

People are often looking for new ways to have their nuptials. A mystery evening is a great way to have a unique and memorable experience with friends and family. We do REHEARSAL DINNERS and RECEPTIONS.

frick and frack

Frick & Frack Shows

More of a stand-up comedy routine, this involves one or two detectives investigating an improvised whodunit while directly involving your audience members in the crime. This creates a personalized show that could never be repeated!

Last night was fabulous! Our group had a great time with Frick & Frack - the whole office is talking this morning about how much fun they had. Thank you for your help setting us up.

Thanks again,


We had a great time last night. They were really great! I've heard good feedback from the audience. We will pass the word to other teams for future reference.

Thank you very much for your help.

I love all things mystery (except the real thing, of course). I read mystery novels. Solve mystery jigsaw puzzles. Throw murder mystery weekend get always. You name it, and this was one of my favorite experiences.

So glad I chose THEY improv for our team-building, fun event. You really delivered.

Wendy is a true professional that guided our event and exceeded all expectations. Her passion, enthusiasm and confidence made the evening a success. She even provided some props and kept the flow of the evening moving throughout dinner. She was dealing with some high-level execs and brought out their talent (especially during the initial death scene). It was hilarious.

You have a gem in Wendy. She did an amazing job. We are very pleased.

On behalf of Liberty Mutual, we wanted to extend a huge thank-you for making this year's summer outing one of a kind! We had a lot of feedback where people said this was one of their favorite outings so far; they loved the murder mystery and not having to play our typical team-building lawn games. It was so fun seeing our peers with different personalities and I must say - some of them have some hidden talents! Christian was an excellent host and got the crowd laughing so much! In fact, another Liberty Mutual group in a different location had heard about all of the fun we had and asked us to pass along your contact info to them.

Thank you again and we hope to work with you again in the future!

Todd -

We cannot thank you enough for sending Adam last night to our 1920's murder mystery dinner for our volunteers! The event was amazing and Adam was incredible. He not only did a fantastic job running the show for us but was great with the crowd. And then stuck around to help tear down our stage and put our classrooms back together! We were more than impressed to say the least.

Our staff really got into it and made the show very special for our volunteers. Amy and Adam talked briefly about ideas for future shows as we really enjoyed the interactive part of last night and it was obvious that so did our volunteers. They all participated and had tons of fun with it. Please let Amy know what other themes you have available that might work for us in the future.

Thank you so much for all of your help!

I wanted to pass along to you ( and you can pass along to the others) our ENTIRE group enjoyed the skit and the ones chosen had a great time!! It has been mentioned this was one of the best Christmas parties we have held at our Firm. So we THANK YOU for that!

Thanks again!


I wanted to let you know that the event last night was great! Dave was a great facilitator and really helped move the event along well. Our group got really into the whole event and enjoyed the theme, concept, and characters. I was very happy with how the whole event turned out and am looking forward to working with you all again.


I just wanted to send a quick note letting you know that our event was a huge success. Eric and Aden exceeded my expectations and were absolutely fantastic. Not only did they arrive dressed appropriately for the dinner, they maintained a level of professionalism the entire night. We asked them to join us for dinner and we enjoyed getting to know them personally, not as their characters! I am hopeful that we will have an opportunity to use THEY Improv again, and if so, we would definitely request that Eric and Aden be a part of it if possible.

I am assuming you received payment in full already, but I do have another question for you. We were not prepared to offer them a gratuity at the time, how do you suggest we go about that coming from a corporate account, not personal?

Thank you for all the detailed behind-the-scenes work you put into our evening as well.

We had a great time today. Debbie hit a home run- she is an amazing artist. I couldn't be happier with the entire event from start to finish. The faculty and staff got so much out of it. It totally fit into my theme of the year, INNOVATE, ENGAGE and GO BEYOND. We hit all of those buzz words in the murder mystery today.

Thank you again. I know I am already thinking of how we can use your company again! It was a wonderful opening day and it helped me set the tone for the year.

THEY improv is a first-class group of comedic actors! We recently hired them to perform their version of a murder mystery at our company-wide meeting and it was a huge success.

Aside from their excellent sense of humor, THEY improv has a great talent for judging crowd reaction and adapting quickly to please. Improv basics? Yes, but it is a small detail, that if neglected, can turn a fun and lively evening into an uncomfortable one in short order. THEY improv is organized, professional and talented and we would highly recommend them to any company.

Thank you THEY improv, for entertaining the people of Case Construction Equipment, Inc.

What an evening! As the event organizer, I must tell you I was more than a little worried that you could bring it off with our large group. With entertainment such a key part of our organization, finding a new and different venue for 80 sales people from the steel industry is not an easy task.

You certainly wowed them. Not only was there much laughter and fun, but you managed to personalize the event for our Company, and allow us to say goodbye to a key employee with a semi roast…all improvised that night.

Many, many comments the following week on how great your team performed. I will certainly recommend you to other departments.

Thank you so much for working with me and performing at Brandeis University at the Student Events’ Murder Mystery show. This event was even better than I had envisioned, and I was very pleased with the event and the actors’ ability to interact with the audience and make everyone feel a part of the show. THEY improv created a very enjoyable evening for everyone in the audience, and I saw people laughing consistently throughout the show. Moreover, the actors’ willingness to adapt and respond to the Brandeis audience really contributed to the event’s success.

It was a pleasure working with you, Todd, during the planning process and at the Murder Mystery show. I really appreciate your reliability, flexibility and devotion to my event to ensure the evening was excellent. In addition, it was very helpful and even easy to remain in contact with you.

I feel that this improv troupe was well worth the invested time and money I spent. I would definitely recommend THEY improv to another school interested in an interactive murder mystery show.

On behalf of the Washoe County Republican Party, thank you for hosting the murder mystery dinner for us. Everyone I’ve spoken to had a great time and really enjoyed the evening.
