I started Act4Murder in 2000 in California by writing a couple of scripts and putting them up on the worldwide web to purchase for performance.
Things weren’t all that bad in 2000, as far as the world went. But here we are in 2018, and you can’t turn on the TV without seeing something horrible that someone has done to someone else. I decided I do not want to add to that, and I was afraid the word “murder” in our name might lead some people to believe we’re all for it, which isn’t the case at all.
We’re all about laughter, having a good time, making fun of ourselves, and offering adult entertainment that includes great stories, music and fun. So when I started running out of merchandise at the end of 2017, it seemed like a good time to make a name change. And now we are Act4Mystery.
Same performance group, just a different name, doing the same thing—performing comedic murder mysteries for dinner theater.
I made another change, too. Because some people would prefer not to share a table during dinner, we’re now giving you that choice. When you make your reservation, let us know if you’re okay with being seated with others, if you’re not okay with it, or if it doesn’t make any difference to you one way or the other.
In February, we’re offering Valentine’s Day candy and single red roses along with our VIP packages. We’re still selling the old Act4Murder shirts and notebooks until we run out, so be sure and buy them up. They’re bound to be collector’s items one of these days, right?
Thanks to all our friends and fans, and we hope to see you at a show in 2018.
