What happens when we arrive?
As soon as the guests arrive they are immersed in the world of the mystery. As guests mingle the actors will mingle getting to know guests, creating atmosphere, and getting them excited to be a part of the interactive world of the theme. As guests take their seats at tables actors choose individual guests to play suspects and introduce tables as teams, briefing all on the rules of mystery and how to play along.
When are we able to eat?
Clients get to choose when they would like the meals served. It can occur before the mystery begins, during, or after, but tends to work best during the 3 act structured show.
Will we be working in teams?
Yes, all guests will be working together as teams at the various tables they are seated at. Every single guest is involved. Every individual is deemed a detective as they are trying to solve the crime and working with their teammates to gather clues and try to solve the crime.
What happens at the end of the event?
Once all suspect line ups and investigation periods have passed each table team will get a final chance to solve the crime by guessing the motive and opportunity of the true killer. They fill out a final sentencing seat and the detective awards the winning team based on who had the most accurate answer. Also, additional awards are given to individual guest that added a lot to the show through their participation such as "Best Actor", "Best Actress", "Best Dressed", etc.
How are we supposed to know what to do throughout dinner?
