How Murder Mystery Works
Murder Mystery team creates shows that have a similar experience to that of an interactive and live game of Clue. All actors have roles that rotate between detective, femme fatale, and the suspect. All roles are given out according to the skill set, experience, and the availability of the actors. Actors at Murder Mystery work with both improve and scripted material.
The company hosts both private and public shows. Public shows are done on a regular basis with a consistent venue. Private shows go from personal celebrations to corporate parties. The shows are performed during the week, and most extensively during the weekend. If chosen to be a part of the Murder Mystery Company, actors will be required to rehearse around 2 to 4 hours every week, especially on weekends. There is an exception of a single quarterly version where no rehearsal goes on for more than 4 hours.
This is a great opportunity to expand your expertise to the theater.
