Private Shows & Group Events

In addition to our award-winning public shows and gift certificates, The Dinner Detective Murder Mystery Dinner Show specializes in custom private murder mystery events for companies, groups and organizations of almost every size. Let us bring our unique brand of interactive audience entertainment to your corporate function, fundraiser, family reunion or other event. There is only one choice for a truly memorable event for your group: the one-of-a-kind comedy and mystery of The Dinner Detective Murder Mystery Dinner Show!

We perform many of our private shows at the Gardens at Los Robles Greens, a newly renovated full-service hotel in beautiful Thousand Oaks, CA. We can host onsite murder mystery events for 30 to 400 guests, and we can also come to you at another venue for groups of 15 to 600 guests.

By having you and a few members of your group meet with The Dinner Detective cast before the event, it’s easy for you to become accomplices in the mystery. We use your guests’ sense of trust in you to our advantage. Each co-conspirator will work with a cast member to formulate a background story summarizing how you know one another, when you first met, and other key details. This background story will be a key ingredient to pulling off your acquaintanceship with this particular cast member. By introducing an actor to someone in your party as a friend, acquaintance or distant relative, you give them a legitimate reason to be at your function. You’d be surprised how easily your guests will buy your story!

Another way we customize and add a sense of personalization to the script is to acquire as much “dirt” on the most outgoing members of your group as possible, and paint a cloud of suspicion over them throughout the evening. Once we establish a sense of guilt in the air, we can roast these individuals throughout the evening.

What a fun show! My wife and I went to the show not knowing what to expect and we were pleasantly surprised! The show has lots of energy and the actors were really good. We've been to a few other murder mystery shows where the cast dresses up like gangsters and villains but this show is different. The suspects hide amongst the guests, which means anyone could be the murderer! How fun! The food was really good as well, fun evening all around. They said they have different scripts so we will definitely be returning.
