What is a Murder Mystery Party?

A murder mystery party is a themed event where attendees dress up to match an era or a genre. They will then work together to solve a fictitious murder which occurs during the party. This event is often compared to a live-action version of the game Clue!

Become the suspect

The party guests
cooperate to investigate the murder and uncover key clues. As a guest, you also have the chance to become a suspect. By the end of the party, you and your team will try to guess who did it, how they did it, and why they did it.

You should keep an eye out for hints about the killer’s motive and opportunity that only the guilty suspect could have.

The most successful murder mystery parties will hire one or more professional “Murder-pros”. These actors keep the plot unfolding while guiding your guests in the right direction without giving too much away.

Our murder mystery parties are an immersive experience.
Your hosts will be fully costumed–and you are encouraged to do the same! We provide additional props and clothing to clearly identify your more outgoing guests chosen as the main suspects.

Almost any group size can participate in a mystery party–from eight to 250 people and up! Our events have risen in popularity as effective team building events. Depending on the size of your gathering, guests will work individually or on teams to solve the crime.

You’ll witness and participate in fun skits and check out physical evidence. This drives the mystery and creates mini-goals to accomplish throughout the night. Pay attention–potential detectives could nab a key clue or be sent on a wild goose chase!

What is it like
to be a suspect?

What is it like
to be a suspect?

Not interested in a main suspect role? Don’t worry–we only choose guests who are enthusiastic and willing! If you are interested and selected, here’s a rundown:

- Our actors provide an item or two of costuming for you to wear (such as a feather boa or a lab coat)

- Your binder contains everything you need to know about your character, including some clues you’ll provide as a suspect

Our #1 priority is that everyone has fun, so we make sure our chosen suspects have all the tools they need.

If you aren’t chosen as a suspect, there is still plenty for you to do! All guests become sleuths at the scene of the crime. You will look at evidence and bribe characters for clues to figure out exactly who did it. There is nothing quite like the thrill of having all of the clues suddenly fall into place and seeing the picture clearly. The “A-ha!” moment is absolutely magical.

If you’re interested but not sure how to throw a murder mystery party, don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. A mystery brought to you by The Murder Mystery Company is a worry-free, hassle-free experience. An event for a small group of friends to a massive holiday murder mystery party for your office get the same level of quality and attention.

(Some Tips From The Party Pros)

When invited to a Murder Mystery Company event, many people wonder what exactly they’ve gotten themselves into. Allow us to answer some common questions you might have, so you can get ready to have an unforgettable experience!

The basic formula for a murder mystery party is simple: We bring out our highly trained improv actors to set the scene for a murder that you and your guests will have the next two hours to solve.

Some of the more outgoing guests at the event will be chosen to play the parts of suspects, but EVERYONE gets to help solve the crime. Sleuths and suspects of all ages are welcome. You can even host a mystery party for kids!

Each murder mystery experience has a specific theme. The murder can take place anywhere. A 1920’s speakeasy, an 80’s rock concert, and a modern day gathering of billionaires are just a few of our options! This gives you, the guest, the chance to play dress up and immerse yourself in the world of the mystery. Costumes can be liberating and add to the experience!
