“I had to write to let you know we LOVE Haley Productions’ murder mysteries! We believe yours are the best, period.
After we purchased our first Murder Mystery from you, we’ve never looked anywhere else!
We love the fact that your mysteries are all inclusive (meaning the download includes EVERYTHING). We don’t need to change or plan anything, if we choose; from writing lines, figuring out props or deciding on a timeline and menu for the evening, all is completely organized and easy to implement! We also appreciate the additional hints/ideas that the “organizer” can adaptor to specific holidays/events. Even though each mystery is organized in a cohesive manner, we can easily find the “Evidence Logs,” “Prop Lists,” “Primary Characters,” “Secondary Suspects” etc. The “Organizer Instructions” are also extremely helpful.
Finally, I think the most important reason we solely purchase your mysteries is the fact that you are so willing to be of assistance and accommodate our needs. It’s rare that a company goes the extra mile, but you always do! As a small nonprofit historic venue, we very much appreciate the value and quality we receive for such a reasonable price. If we can ever reciprocate in any way, please let us know! Thank you again.”

I was inspired to write about this particular topic because of some feedback from two of my repeat customers. Clearly I’m not the only “chief imagination officer” ’round here!
She wrote, “Our school has done 4 of your murder mystery games and this will be our 5th year. I have one great suggestion. We have our drama club students learn dancing for each play. For your country and western mystery game, The Demise of the Downhome Dealers, we did line dancing and for your pirate mystery game, The Deadman’s Chest, we did the Virginia Reel. We give out raffle tickets for all those who participate in dancing and costumes etc. The crowd loves it and then we give out small prizes in the end.”
“Whenever we need a bit more time, we call people up for various things. For Deadman’s Chest we took the pirate speak you provided and asked people to come up and read them. People loved it – we also had the drama club teach the tango to our guests. We purchase music to set the mood and we have even had live bands. It is quite a production.”
“Oh just remember that all the things you ask the audience to do give them a raffle ticket. We give everyone one as they come in for being there to support the fundraiser. We also take all the people who got the correct answer and pull one best detective.”
“This year we may go with a Hollywood Bowl style setup where people can either bring dinner to their table or sit at a table with just munchies. The ticket will include a beverage and dessert…Some guests didn’t want to buy the more expensive dinner ticket so we thought this might work too.”
If you want more inspiration you should check out all the testimonials on our website. Any creative idea that I’ve posted from my customers is seriously impressive and inspiring. Use ’em.

“The murder mystery dinner game was a hit!! Here’s our cast that played in your Bordello of the Damned Old West murder mystery game kit. We had so much fun! We sold out at 72 plates served and they are begging for us to do this again! Our cast is already looking at a couple of your murder mystery games for the next time because they are having too much fun. I told them not to look anywhere else cause you were the best!” – Tracy Robinson, Guthrie, KY.
MURDER MYSTERY GAME SYNOPSIS: The year is 1880. Jimmy Hayward rules this town. It once thrived and prospered when folks thought gold was in them thar hills. Them thar hills contained nothing but dirt and so the town lost not only its fortune but its fame and its population. Now Deadwood is just an occasional stagecoach stopover for folks moving on to better places. And the Leland Hotel and Saloon is a haven for outlaws (like yourselves) and it houses Madam Iggy’s, the best little whorehouse in the South Dakota. Consider it just another night in the old west, only this time it will more deadly than usual.
Note: You can change the name of this mystery to Dead in Deadwood AND you can have it be a dance hall & saloon instead of a bordello. The girls then become can-can girls and nickel a dance girls.
Two more reviews for this murder mystery game:
“I would be honored if you would share my testimony to Red Hatters!! I’d be more than happy to let them know what fun we had with your mystery! Our Chapter purchased and put on your Bordello of the Damned. Our silly pictures won a prize on your website. I did want you to know that at least 3 other Queen Mum’s heard about our fun at the Leland Saloon and I have sent them a link to your site. I hope they have as much fun as we did!! In love and laughter.” –Queen Mum Erna, Red Hatted Rascals, Canada
“I just wanted to tell everybody about our production of “Bordello Of The Damned”. We are a small amateur dramatic society and decided to look into a murder mystery evening for the first time ever. I found Haley Productions on the web and after checking out the story lines, we decided to go for “Bordello”. I’m pleased to tell you that it was a resounding success! The cast loved it, the chorus girls had a great time (especially as we allowed them to do a dance routine to “Lady Marmalade”!) and the audience had nothing but praise for us. … A lot of people dressed up for the occasion and after several drinks were had they threw themselves into it. I can say that we will certainly be looking to do another one in the future and would recommend it to any amateur actors as a way of improving your ad lib skills. Big thanks to Susan for all her help. I’ll be in touch soon for ‘Bordello Of The Damned Part 2 – Willy’s Revenge’!” –Adam Kuhl from the other side of the pond.

“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.”

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
