AMAZING! The script, evidence, extras...all first-rate! I love that it is all downloaded so that I could personalize a little. I ordered "My Alma Martyr" for a volunteer appreciation dinner for 120 guests. A local High School drama club came to act out the murder. It was a huge success. The theater director said the script was easy to understand and his students had a blast rehearsing. Susan Haley was amazing to work with. I had emailed her a few times before our event for advice and she treated me like a long lost friend and was helpful and encouraging. I will most definately be using this company every year for our appreciation dinner. -Dawn Robertson, Merrillville, IN

"In the past, we purchased mysteries from other companies, but since we ordered from you we decided yours are the best; we've found that your mystery dinners are the most detailed, organized and easy to perform! In fact, we only purchase from you now! " - Cat Masucci

Thank you to those that share their knowledge and expertise - so the rest of us may pretend to be actors! Haley Productions' easy download had complete information including all details and "to do" lists that made our community performance of "Murder on Maui" a hilarious success! As all things in life, the more one puts into the end result - the better the outcome...all our novices had sooo much fun "working " on their performances! Bonnie Field, Leesburg, FL

I've used several of the murder mystery scripts, and they've always proved fun, interesting and solvable! We've used the narrator version, and enjoyed the actors improvisations. - Jeremy Fagan, Liverpool, England

I just wanted to say the production was a hit! Everyone had a great time. We will definitely be using other productions of yours in the future. Thanks for all your help, we had a lot of fun! - Kelly Mundell, Vancleave, MS

Simply fabulous scripts. Haley Productions has a long wonderful track record, Susan has been writing dynamite murder mysteries and tailored custom scripts for decades, and they show it. Engaging, compelling, interactive. Love her stuff. - Charlie Finesilver, Lexington, SC

My name is Krista and I'm the adult program coordinator at the Norwin Public Library. This will be our third mystery night at the library. The play we used last year was over $100 and wasn't half as good or half as thorough as your play. I was thrilled to come across your website to find the prices so affordable. The old saying you get what you pay for does not apply for this, so I thank you very much. And the fact that you have so many [murder mystery] scripts available will certainly keep us coming back. The actors all come from staff and volunteers at the library, and they are very excited about this year's play, Rushmore's Revenge.
     GREAT BODY REMOVAL IDEA > I noticed when I was reading through the script that you are very open to suggestions and comments. Previous years, we were pretty much forbidden to change anything. It's quite a refreshing change. I did have a suggestion of something that came up last year and worked out great. Our play was about a mystery writer who was murdered during a book signing. Halfway through, she was poisoned and passed out on a chair at a table. The actor who played her is an older, plus-sized lady. So picking her up wasn't really an option, so we came up with the next best thing. We made sure she sat on a rolling chair and asked the audience to close their eyes while we removed the body (we knew they wouldn't.) We threw a sheet over her and wheeled her to the door, then we picked up the sheet and she could disappear. While we moved her, we heard laughing and several people mentioned that was one of their favorite parts. - Krista Brown, Norwin Public Library

Thank you for making our murder mystery so much fun. I have a wine and whiskey bar. We build the evening around dinner. We had 33 attendees (my capacity) and the participants really got in to their parts. I have a waiting list for the next one. I'll be choosing soon:) - Krisan, ChewVino

Thank you again for all your help in providing us with murder mystery scripts to entertain to our community. We did our first one “Next of Kin” last August, and it was so much fun, that people were asking us to do another one ASAP. We just did the second one Saturday, ”Murder at Midnight Hour”, and it was more fun than the last one. We learn from each one what to do to make the next one better. Your generosity in letting me bother you with questions whenever has been invaluable to me. With the success of each skit, we have more people interested in taking part. - Kathie Anderson, Florence, Alabama

I want you to know that this is the third year I have used your site. I am the social chairperson of a senior citizen community. Three years ago I decided to do a Mystery Theater. After searching the Internet I finally decided to buy your Luau Mystery Theater. It was a great hit and I promised it would be an annual affair. Last year I wanted to do a Western Theme. I ordered from another company. I was totally dissatisfied and knew it would not work for our group. I then ordered your Western Mystery. Again another hit! This year I ordered the "Hippie" Mystery Theater and the Black Cat Halloween Hunt. I am now a loyal customer and have told other people how satisfied I have been with your site and products. I am looking forward to fun hunt in October and a successful Mystery Dinner Theater in January. - Patti Barnett- Social Chairperson of Salt Springs Village, Salt Springs, Florida

We would like to say a huge Thank You to Susan Haley. Once again her script provided an evening of superb entertainment. We had the audience in stitches. And let me tell you, when she writes "The audience will love this" she's not kidding! One of the best things about her scripts is that once they are ordered and paid for, boom, they are in your inbox. No long waits for rights or shipping, and you get everything you need! We have been using Susan's scripts for over eight years and we have had nothing but success with them. We highly recommend them. Stab in the Dark Productions, Cranbrook B.C.

Photo: Murder mystery dinnerYou are a goddess. This script, and the other documents, are incredible and I have the perfect cast for it. Thank you sooooo much. I still am so amazed at what you have done with this package: invitations, awards, participant's clue book, script...all for a really reasonable price. There will be a lot of happy people at my mystery night. Ted Sharon, Fredonia NY

The mystery party game kit looks fabulous!!! Your website is great and very helpful - and my emails were returned so quickly. It's just all too easy! Thanks! Tristana Foutz

Thank you so much for the follow-up email. That is fantastic of you, really shows that you care about your product and your customers! Our murder mystery evening went absolutely great! Everyone had so much fun - I couldn't tell if the cast or the guests had more fun. We laughed all evening, and had a great time adding our own flare to each character. Thanks so much for doing what you do! We had a group of about 30 people, and you entertained every one of us! Sincerely, Thad Crawford, Bentonville AR

Matilda and dead woman photo Susan, I was just getting ready to order another murder mystery dinner game from you when I realized I don't think I ever sent you some photos from the one we did this past February - Dead Man's Chest. It may have been the best one yet, and as you know, we (the Milledgeville Players) have done several of yours. Mardi Gras and pirates!! Definitely one that made for some of the more elaborate costumes and set pieces we have ever done. So I thought you would like some photos from it. Put some on your web site. Use them to calm down nosy neighbors. And yes, we continue to use the Matilda Titmouse character from Murder On Maui in every Haley mystery game we perform. So you will often see "Matilda" posing with folks - audience attendees and dying actors (Note: Matilda is the colorful lady in the photo lying with a victim). Hope you enjoy. Tom Toney, Georgia College, Milledgeville, GA

Susan, thanks so much for the personal attention on this. Really makes me feel like I got my money's worth. As far as the instructions and everything, what can I say, you really have thought of everything from the marketing to the menu to, of course, the mystery! The story is funny and well written and I love the flexibility it offers us a group. My "team" is all theatre people, so the ability to Improv in this and to take the crux of the story and make it our own is really great. Again, I am super excited for our party and thank you so much for being supportive of your products. I can tell you if this goes over like I believe it will, this will not the last time we purchase something from you! Sonny Dyon, Clermont FL

Everything went great and it was a blast. I was very impressed with how everything was so organized and laid out for us. I have looked all over for murder mysteries for large groups and yours are by far the best. We will be purchasing from you in the future! Heather Mortensen, Albion, ID

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

Photo 1960s wedding mystery dinner gameI appreciate your offer but no help was needed as the directions and outline were clearly written and explained. Our event went very well largely in part to the concise and organized manner in which you had put together "Next of Kin." The group performed the mystery (narrator style) to critical acclaim... Now we're famous (in small circles of course). Thanks Again, Todd Wise, Bakersfield, CA

A large group of friends enjoyed the "Next of Kin" mystery this weekend. We had a blast. We have done multiple mystery dinners in the past but this was the favorite for sure. Everyone loved the use of a narrator instead of having to ad lib everything. We made up a few of our own characters to make sure everyone had a chance to be someone else, which was easy to do with this layout. Thanks for a great party! Lori Horne

We did "Murder on Maui" last year and everyone had such a good time, they wanted to do it again this year. With all of the added information that you send with the script, the group thinks I am a genius, even though I give you the credit! Thanks again, Pepi Parshall

"Murder at the Midnight Hour" was a smashing hit. Our community has been hard hit by downsizing of the textile industry. This night made some folks laugh and escape their problems for about two hours. Something they had not done for a long time. I thank you for the script and plan on selecting another to perform in the months ahead. Eric Tyler, Alexander City, AL

Your packet is so well done that we are left with only the basic things to do. Thank you! - Rod Robertson, Lapeer MI

Guests enjoying the murder mystery dinnerWe have used your murder mysteries now for two years at our fundraising event and they have been an absolute ball to put on and to watch our guests enjoy. The actors are devoted volunteers and request every year to be involved in the next one. Thank you for creating and offering such a fun way for us to raise money to help save the lives of our children from the diabolical effects of drugs and alcohol through our prevention efforts. Debra M. Baker, Prevention Specialist, Remembering ADAM, Inc., Northern Cambria, PA

"Brilliant, Susan! Your murder mystery game exceeded my expectations and it was a surprise and highlight of our Sisters Weekend. Thank you very much for your innovation, careful organization, attention to detail, answering my pre-game questions and this follow-up. In Gratitude and Friendship" - Mary Wendt, McHenry, IL

I performed the mystery party game last weekend, and my group had a blast. I want to thank you for making these available, they are perfect for planning parties around. I've used your mystery games twice now, Maui Murder Mystery, and now What Happened to Sam Disney, and both have gone great. Everyone has a great time playing parts and being involved. I especially enjoyed the scavenger hunt included in the Sam Disney mystery. My detectives and suspects were running all over the building we were using looking for clues, it was very entertaining. I enjoy your games very much, and I know I will be back to put on a third mystery. Ryan Walker, San Diego, CA

I just wanted to drop a line and let you know how much fun we all have in putting on one of your Murder Mystery Dinners. For the past two years we have ordered one of your kits for our fund raiser. A special thank you from TROOP 27 in Belfast Maine.....THANKS for all of your hard work to ensure your customers are taken care of. If it wasn't for your scripts and the way you run your business it would be nearly impossible for us to be as successful as we have been and plan on being with the next dinner early in 2008. We continue to spread the word on your company and hope new scripts keep coming out. Thanks to you and your company for Great Customer Service and a special thank you for making it so easy to raise money for an organization like BOY SCOUTS! Jennifer Lane, Swanville, ME

Susan, I love the interactive nature of the scripts you have written. It allows the guests to create a part, and interact with the actors. I have found that this is the most successful format in a successful murder mystery. Our guests loved the improvisation of the actors, and was very enthusiastic about getting into the action of things. Matched with wine and food, we had a wonderful time. Our guests were enthralled with the entertainment, and the murder mystery evening was complete with the superb interaction with improvisation and interaction with our guests. We have used the murder mystery in a box formula, but that is dull compared to the interactive format and comedy that your scripts allow. Thank you. Kim Nolan, Modesto, CA

Wow, thanks for the follow up email. I decided to buy from you because you were very reasonably priced, seemed well-organized and had such glowing reviews. Your accessibility was highlighted on your website as well and I am grateful for the contact if I need it. Lani Doser, Portland, OR

Photo: murder mystery game victimWe had a blast with the murder mystery! The script was great and we had no problem getting "into the characters". The props worked well...the poison and the blood looked real and the blood came out of my husbands sweater like you said it would! We would recommend your murder mysteries to any group that wanted to have some fun. Everyone was really skeptical at first but it really was a hoot!! The directions were very easy to follow and the script left a lot of room to develop your character as much or as little as you wanted to. Thanks again. It will be a great memory of a fun evening! Dee Davis, Milford, DE

It was an amazing evening. I'm not sure who had the most fun, the audience or the cast. Next Of Kin was quite a hit. Based on the response we'll have an even larger turnout next year. The audience was much more involved than I thought they would be and we are now all card carrying member of over-actors anonymous. I wish you success with your product. Thank you for your wonderful program and support. Elizabeth Feintech, Forestville, CA

Susan, you have been very helpful, and I rate you the highest of all the participation murder mystery web pages I have been searching over the last two months! You are the one who was willing to establish a connection and follow through. Plus I feel you have a quality product with strong support/guideline. Jeff Wittman, Chair, Theatre, Lynchburg College

Hollywood mystery game photoWe had looked at several options for presenting a murder mystery at our library. We had even thought of writing our own script. However, once we saw what Susan was able to provide for us, the decision was easily made. It was more than we could have hoped for. Her script allowed us to customize parts of the script to fit our needs and limitations, but also gave us a wonderful plot and colorful characters that we could have never made on our own. In addition to that, the mystery package included all of the graphics, programs, etc. that we needed. In short, Haley Productions saved us innumerable hours of frustrating work and was affordable enough to allow our entire project to cost less than we had anticipated. Next of Kin was a huge success! Cast members and attendees both had a blast! This project has generated a lot of interest and excitement about the library, making our Next of Kin mystery program twice as beneficial to us. Thank you Susan! Dave Miller, Programming Librarian, Johnson County Public Library, Greenwood, IN

Thanks for your follow up. We did our Murder Mystery at our company's conference and we had an absolute hoot. Everything that we needed was in the mystery party kit, and the scripts were first rate (however I don't think my acting skills did them justice, there is definitely no Oscar in the pipeline for me). Thanks again for taking the time out to reply to my order, and I would definitely recommend your firm to any one looking to do a murder mystery. Andy Beaton, Inverness Scotland

I live in a retirement community in Florida. My friends and I wanted to do a show for our neighbors. We purchased Next of Kin and chose the narrator version because it doesn't require memorizing lines. We hoped to sell 50 tickets for the show and dinner at $5/ticket. We sold 150 tickets in less than a week! We had lots of comments that this was a unique type of event. There was so much excitement that night that the actors gave their best performance. The extra characters stepped up and added to the hilarity. Four weeks later we're still hearing compliments: "Best show ever in our community." "Please do this again monthly. We will come to each show!" "Such a unique event."

The script itself was worth the price, but the extras were a true blessing. Thank you for providing so much fun for so many people in our community. We'll be doing this every summer until you run out of scripts! Julia West, Largo, FL
