1970’s Beauty School Murder Mystery Game

Rushmore’s Revenge Murder Mystery Game: A social for the 1979 graduating class of Rushmore’s Beauty Academy for Women.

1970's beauty school murder mystery game

ALL FEMALE CAST. This would also be fun for an all-male cast dressed in drag. We love to make the women English or Southern.

STORY: Changes are coming to the Rushmore Beauty Academy for Women – an institution where nothing has changed in its 80-year history. Bernice Rushmore, whose family founded the school, is resigning from the Board Of Regents and withdrawing her funding. As a result, men will now be admitted to the school to increase enrollment in the hopes of keeping the school afloat. Naturally, it’s all very upsetting. So we advise you to watch your back. It’s difficult to tell who is friend or foe with the future of this sacred institution at stake.

THE PLACE: Rushmore Beauty Academy for Women, Staffordshire, England (England is optional; a southern state in the U.S. is another option).

THE EVENT: A social for graduating class of 1979 (Alternatives: the 1950’s or modern day).

A TESTIMONIAL: “We successfully put on the production of Rushmore’s Revenge to an audience of 40. Nervous didn’t come into it ! However once we had started we had a great time. Many thanks for the privilege of performing. We really hope to do some more.” Maggie,  Bridlington, East Yorks, UK

P.S. “We are a group that belongs to U3a. It is a world wide organisation and there are over 90 odd interest groups of which drama is one.”

Order and download this or another of our fabulous murder mystery games now.  Make your event as memorable as Maggie’s was.

REVIEW:

“Hello, Susan! I just wanted to let you know that your murder mystery play, The Final Cut, was a HUGE hit this past weekend. 92 people from my small community came out to laugh until they had tears rolling down their faces, and many told me it was the best one so far. This is the 7th one of your packages I’ve put on here in my small community. Each year it seems I hear the same thing: “Oh my gosh, I haven’t laughed that hard in ages. That was the best one yet!” So thanks so much for selling such a wonderful product.”
Thanks again.

Thecast wants to know when we can do it again! We keep on hearing comments everywhere we go! It really was amazing. Everyone had such a good time being part of and watching the performance! Thanks!” Donett May, WHCC Entertainment Committee, Mount Vernon, IN

1920’s Era Slang & Phrases

Here’s our downloadable PDF of 1920’s Era Slang & Phrases to use with our 1920’s themed murder mystery game, The Mafia Murders.

Murder Mystery Game: The Mafia Murders1920's gangster murder mystery game

Circa 1920’s. Someone in the family is out to destroy the Godfather. So much for loyalty to “da boss”.

Great choice for a holiday party – make it A Very Mafia Christmas.

Corporate adaptation: Our Godfather is taking over your company or forming an alliance with your company – you’ll all be one big “family”.

REVIEW: “We received ‘The Mafia Murders’ immediately and found the instructions to be very helpful and easy to understand. We ordered the script at the last minute and pulled it off without a hitch. Using the Narrator version with everyone acting out their part as it was read, our evening was a huge success! Many laughs were had and everyone that came to the party said it’s the best party they’ve been to ever and all are asking when we will be having the next one! In fact we are planning on ordering again next year for my husband’s 60th birthday. Thank you for providing us promptly with a witty and entertaining script.” Kathy and Michael Smith, Boambee East New South Wales [READ MORE REVIEWS HERE]

OPERATION OUR TOWN SCAVENGER HUNT GAME – a perfect summer party game

Scavenger Hunt Games - Downloadable - photo of team having funOperation Our Town scavenger hunt was a HUGE success at my family reunion!! We ALL – everyone – had a great time. The interaction was exactly what was needed. You learn a lot about people through such activities. I can’t wait to try another one of your hunts. By the way I liked to read what others thought about the product before buying and I love that you communicate with your audience – it adds such a personal touch! Wonderful! – Andrea Johnson

A DEADLY INCENTIVE  – a murder mystery game for large groups

We did “A Deadly Incentive” as a fundraiser for the Foundation and it was a smashing success. We did have one complaint: a gal said her cheeks hurt from laughing so hard. 🙂 We love those complaints. Thanks for providing the complete package. We just love it and that’s why we’re back for more! – Ginny Reeves, President, PV Police Foundation

CATCH ME IF YOU CAN – a mystery scavenger hunt game for kids

Mystery Scavenger Hunt Game for Kids - photo of teamThe girls had a great time! It (Operation Catch Me If You Can) helped keep 8 seven and eight-year old girls busy for a sleepover party. It was great having something structured like this for the girls to do—help prevent cliques being formed and the cattiness that often occurs with little girls. This was a very entertaining party idea and very well-priced! By morning all of the girls left saying, “This was the best sleepover party ever!” Also, thank for the excellent customer service that is so often lacking in most business. – Debbie, New York mom of 5

THE MAFIA MURDERS – our 1920’s gangster murder mystery game and one of our most popular games.

I’m sharing Janey Hudson’s newsletter for party idea inspiration as well as her testimonial.

HER TESTIMONIAL:

Gangster 1920's murder mystery game - suspect photoHi, Susan, this is kind of a long e-mail, but it’s all good, so please bear with it!

We are retirees in a community in Central Florida. A couple of years ago we did your Mafia murder mystery. At the same time, I also undertook an elaborate Italian dinner with a “speakeasy” type decor for 160 of our closest friends and neighbors. It was an absolutely SMASHING success and we vowed to do another one the next year.

Last year, someone else decided to “cook” and they decided on a German theme. I perused your offerings and couldn’t find anything I thought was appropriate, so I (sigh!) bought a “murder mystery” from another vendor because it kind of “fit” the evening’s meal. I can honestly say, it was disappointing to my husband and I because it had absolutely no “pop” to it. I was glad when the night was over.

Pirate Mardi Gras Murder Mystery Game - suspect photoThis year, before anyone else could usurp the kitchen (lol) I offered again to host a murder for a large group. My meal/city is New Orleans/Mardi Gras so Dead Man’s Chest (our pirate Mardi Gras murder mystery game) is perfect…We have already found a life size pirate cut-out which we plan to have people stand up and get their pictures taken as “pirates”.

I know this is long, but I just wanted to let you know how much fun we have with your productions and how disappointed we were when we chose another one. I guess we’ll know not to go “fishing” elsewhere for something you have. LOL. P.S. Our “extravaganzas” sell out lock, stock and barrel within about a week of posting tickets for sale! 

NEWSLETTER:

Italian Murder Mystery
Dinner, Murder and Dessert!

Uh-Oh!!!!! Somebody killed ‘da Boss! And we all know that means “somebody” has to pay, pay, pay. Please join The Beacon Terrace Players as they present a murder mystery in the infamous local Italian speakeasy, The Library, (located in the BT clubhouse) … for an evening of great food, good company, and, unfortunately, a dastardly murder. Never fear, BT neighbors, the “neighborhood” is once again made safe because of top notch detective work by the local primo gumshoes and their massive team of assistants (a/k/a dinner guests) who for one night are given the courtesy title of “The Beacon Terrace Detective Squad” (okay, they‘re the Fuzz). Justice ultimately prevails because of combined efforts and relentless sleuthing, to collaborate, solve the case, catch the bad guy and, in the end, point the long arm of the law toward WHO DONE IT!

Watch for soon to be posted announcements providing more details of this upcoming event. Expect to be waited on by your professional Beacon Terrace wait staff, entertained by The Beacon Terrace Players who will act their hearts out to grab your attention, and the BT Fuzz Division who do their best to keep the community crime free. The BT Players will be in period 1920s attire and will astound you with their trash talking mob slang. Don’t miss out on this exciting evening of fun!

Mafia Murders Murder Mystery Dinner – Fun Ideas to Steal

1920's gangster murder mystery gameHere are some creative ideas from one of our customers for our Mafia Murders Murder Mystery Dinner Game.

“We hosted our Mafia Murders mystery dinner event at our 55+ community for a sell-out crowd of 90 people. It was a huge success! Many of the audience dressed in 20’s attire for the event.

Love her ideas here >>

Our dinner included “Knock out punch”, “Brush with Death” bruschetta and “Sinister” salad, “Choosy Floozy” chicken parmesan and “Hotsy Totsy” herb pasta, “Da Bomb” spumoni, with courses served between acts.

We had programs printed with cast “thumbnail” pictures on a family tree to help the audience identify who was who.

Prizes of “Godfather’s Hooch”, airline size bottles of Canadian Club with labels featuring our Godfather, were prizes for the table(s) with the most correct answers.

I just want to close by saying that these murder mysteries are definitely appropriate for multiple age groups. Our social committee will consider doing another next year. Thanks again for your help in having a successful murder mystery evening!”  – Linda Rymer
