Maine's Premier Murder Mystery Dinner Theater

Maine's longest running professional mystery dinner theater. We've performed hundreds shows to tens of thousands of people.

Food, fun, and a chance to solve a mystery! That's what Mystery for Hire is all about! Since 1995, we've been Maine's premier year round, professional mystery theatre troupe.

When considering entertainment for your next event, fundraiser, annual meeting, employee banquet, or special event, consider a professional troupe....Mystery for Hire!

We also perform as Mainely Improv, a professional improvisational comedy troupe. Much like the style of TV's "Whose Line Is It, Anyway?" we bring our own brand of "on the spot" comedy made up entirely from audience suggestions.

We also provide workshops on the skills of improvisation. These are especially great for team building exercises at the work place where being able to think quickly on one's feet is a very necessary skill.

Here is a bit more specific information:

* We have scripted mystery shows that you can choose from, each with a different theme. That is always available to clients. A popular one is Lights! Camera! Murder!—a spoof on Hollywood award shows. We also have a pirate theme show that people love. It can work out well as a theme for the evening. We have many other themes to choose from.

* We can create a personalized mystery based on any theme you might want to incorporate. Name a theme. We create a mystery.

* A newly popular option is where we have some of your guests appear as suspects to the crime. We work with 4 or 5 members of your staff and prepare them with a character and costuming ideas along with appropriate props. (They don't have lines to learn. However, they do have a few things for them to know….a brief description of their character, what motives they might have to commit a crime, what their alibi will be.) We work with them in advance of your event and with them right before the evening rolls out. There is definitely a surprise factor when some of your own guests become suspects and are questioned by the audience and detective. For this option to work well, you need to have guests who don't mind being in the spotlight. They also need to know that they won't be able to sit back and enjoy the event because they become a major part of it. The more engaged these “volunteer” suspects are, the more fun your group will have. This choice is not for everyone, but it has been very successful with groups that want to add an extra twist to a mystery.

* Do you have a particularly small group that you'd like us to do a mystery show for? We now offer "The Guilty Party," a scaled down version of our full mystery shows for small groups and in-home parties. We provide an array of interactive activities that engage guests in an evening of crime solving.

* Improv comedy is always a hit if you want to go that direction. We can do this as after dinner entertainment or break it into two sets of comedy. Highly interactive where we make comedy skits from audience suggestions entirely. We bring members of the audience into the action as well. It is very much like the TV show, “Whose Line Is It, Anyway?”

Why consider us? We have nearly 20 years of experience where many of us have performed together for that length of time. We are experienced and professional. You will find other mystery theater troupes that say that they offer shows throughout the country. Don't be fooled. If they contract with you, they will contact local performers to put together a show with little or no rehearsal and experience performing together. Our experience can insure guaranteed fun for your event.

You will also find troupes that charge less than we do. The old saying goes that you get what you pay for. Our troupe knows how to read an audience and can gear the show to fit exactly the needs of your guests. Again, you will find that our experience pays off in providing you with a well run and successful event.
