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

Our adult mysteries are perfect for corporate events, holiday parties, team building activities, fund-raisers, etc. They are perfectly suited for middle school and high school students as well.
