Murder for Hire

The following is a brief synopsis of our current collection of Murder Mystery scripts. If you are planning a special function and would like to do something a little different around the dinner event, then a Murder Mystery is just the thing. Audience size can range from as little as 50 people up to 200. Running time is typically about 2.5 hours long.

The diners are not just passive observers of the entertainment but can participate actively by playing detective and questioning each of the characters individually in an attempt to deduce "who dunit". Prior to the climax of the show, ballots are passed around to all of the diners and they can indicate who they think the culprit ( or culprits) is (or are) and why.

After the finale and all has been revealed, the ballots are sorted and two prizes are awarded. One ballot is drawn from those that have correctly fingered the guilty party and the person that submitted that ballot wins a prize. The remaining prize is awarded to the person that submits the most creative or amusing reasoning for their deduction, even if it isn't the correct one. Each prize is typically a family pack of tickets to the next stage production by The Lakeside Players (an $18 value).

We can tailor an existing script or create a new story line to follow just about any theme you might require. For more information regarding our Murder Mysteries, please contact us (
