Corporate Team Building - Private Event

The Motive for Murder troupe was hired to perform for our management/staff at our annual company meeting. We weren't quite sure what to expect, but were absolutely thrilled with the performance! The performance did offer some interaction between the actors & audience as well as the audience being encouraged to move about and examine the evidence. I heard nothing but rave reviews from everyone in our group.

I would highly recommend Motive for Murder as an excellent option for a corporate team building event. It appealed across the wide age range of our group & was a great option for a group of our size (about 35 people). The show itself was intimate, professional, funny, and very entertaining.

Retirement House Party for 50

This past weekend I hosted a surprise retirement party for my mom where I wanted to do something outside the box for her. My sist and I came up with the Murder Mystery idea and I stumbled onto this company. Let me be the first to say I was so pleased I did- the people at the party can't stop talking about how much fun they had. Tey especially enjoyed investigating the crime scenes, searching through the evidence, and questioning the actors!

I set up a 20' x 30' tent in my driveway and had seating for 50 guests. They were all fully engaged once the actors kicked off the performance. The plot was witty, funny, and was a difficult case to crack. There was no ridiculous singing that I've seen before and didn't care for that other mysteries have. The price was very reasonable and I'm confident my mom will remember this for a very long time. Phil was especially easy o work with leading up to the event and took the time to answer any questions I had and also gave me advice how to set up the party and what to expect. I'm not a one to throw parties and I was extremely nervous leading up to the event but this went so smooth I was utterly amazed. All of the actors were friendly, fully engrossed in their parts, veryrodessional, and respectful of my house.

Great Christmas Party event

Our hospital booked Motive for Murder for our annual christmas party and as an alternative to the usual DJ and dancing. I have received positive feedback and appreciation from the staff. Phil was great to work with, the actors were very professional and the sound system and music that they provided for our evening was excellent.

very entertaining; well worth your time and money

booked by my wife for a party at my home attended by a group that tends to be boisterous and easily distracted right from the get-go. motive for murder handled the crowd extremely well, molded the presentation to the somewhat odd requests placed by the booker, and kept their sense of humor and poise under trying circumstances as the evening progressed. parties with this crowd are almost always fun and enjoyable but this was a great party and it was great because of motive for murder.

Punderson Manor Murdery Mystery

We had a great time at the Punderson Murder Mystery weekend, put on by Motive For Murder. The story line was detailed, and the actors did a fantastic job of portraying their characters throughout the evening and the next morning. Having the oportunity to search for clues as well as interview the suspects made the evening and whole experience a blast!

Motive For Murder

Motive For Murder provides quality murder mystery entertainment for any occasion, be it one night, overnight or a full blown weekend. From corporate functions, private events, holiday parties, public performances or fundraisers, we have you covered.

At a Motive For Murder mystery performance, you and your guests are treated to the "crime of your life." Even though we describe the performance as "interactive theatre", there is no stage. The actors mingle with your guests who become detectives involved in a series of murders which have a logical and satisfying solution. All the necessary clues to solve the murders are presented and allowed to be inspected.

Unlike the majority of what passes for murder mystery entertainment, we don't slap funny wigs and silly hats on your guests and require them to perform. We provide a fully scripted, professionally acted theatrical event. No singing. No dancing. No pointless time killers.

We do not say that we are the best nor are we the least expensive. What makes Motive For Murder different from other murder mystery companies is that we care. We care about the needs and goals of your group. We care about the quality of our performance. We care about your satisfaction because we know that planning an event can be murder.

What's your motive?
