PLOT OF CHAINED MELODY

MELODY CARLISLE is a BIG rock star. She likes strawberries, Taco Tico and the color purple. She never goes anywhere without her Pomeranian dog, Doodles. KATY LEXINGTON is Melody’s mother. She is divorced from her first husband, Hal, and is currently married to LUTHER LEXINGTON. Luther is Melody’s business manager as well as her step dad. KENDRA HAGAN is Melody’s “Number One Fan,” and a computer geek who makes money maintaining fan websites. They are currently at WNG-TV Studios, where Melody is scheduled to do a live concert to promote her new CD. But things don’t go according to plan…

 

Murder in Three Acts

Chained Melody is one of our Murder in Three Acts scripts.  A terrible crime is committed, it’s up to you to bring the killer to justice!

The Mystery Shop’s Murder in Three Acts is a real killer. Professional actors perform a scripted play in three acts, incorporating clues to solve the mystery.

After Act 1, the audience begins its investigation. You’re on the case as you question suspects, examine evidence and “buy” insider information (with Mystery Shop Investigation Bucks).  Act II thickens the plot so the audience can continue it pursuit of the murderer. Act III brings a solution – with suspect, motive and method.

There’s plenty of time for group participation – and even more time for fun.Chained Melody
