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.

Our Old West Murder Mystery Game Is a Hit!

MURDER MYSTERY GAME REVIEW

We received this email from a customer who purchased our Old West murder mystery game complete with cowboy outlaws, a nun and uh, let’s call them “dance hall girls” (bein’ that we’re in polite company).

“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:

Bordello Old West 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

Bordello Old West mystery game“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.

FYI, you’ll find the above testimonials here.

Town Scavenger Hunt Game

REVIEW: “Susan, Operation 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


HOW IT WORKS: This is an outdoor walking or driving scavenger hunt suitable for any area with shops and businesses (including malls). *This scavenger hunt will work in both large and small communities. They will embark on a super fun scavenger hunt, taking pictures, obtaining specific items and completing a creative project.

Scavenger hunts for the workplace

You’ll need about 2 hours minimum for this hunt¬†(unless you remove some challenges). Your group will be divided into teams of¬†3 to 10 people. Each team will receive a collection bag¬†(knapsack, duffle bag or even a plastic shopping bag will do)¬†containing a digital camera (or you can use one smart phone per team), their challenge sheet – the hunt itself – and various supplies. They will then embark on the scavenger hunt, taking pictures, obtaining specific items and completing a creative project. All the challenges are worth valuable points and there are some bonus point challenges as well. At the conclusion of the hunt, the teams will prepare an optional final presentation while you ‚Äúgrade‚ÄĚ their challenge sheets to find the winners based on point total¬†(award certificates are included with this hunt). THE WINNING TEAM will have had the most fun as a team while collecting the most points.

Spring is just about here and it’s time to get out and play no matter what age you are!¬†¬†

REVIEW: “Absolutely Amazing!!!! There is no other way to describe our team scavenger hunt activity. It exceeded every expectation I could have had. The picture portion brought me to tears when doing the scoring, I couldn’t believe the things our teams came up with. I knew it would be fun, but I had no idea how much. This was truly a ‘team” building exercise, watching the men (who are only usually interested in a golf outing), roar with excitement when their teams photo or unusual item was chosen and displayed for all to see. We had a dinner that evening to present awards and the winners, this is a must in bringing things to an end. We had a projector and showed the highlights of the day on screen. The room was “electric”!!!!!!!! Thank you so much the all the tools to make this day a huge success. The only problem I have is what to do for next year, the bar has been set so high, I don’t think anything could top this.” Fondly,¬†Desiree Clisura, Princeton, NJ
