The Murder Mystery is usually run with between 6 – 12 of the participants being given their character’s information before the event. The host or event organiser decides upon who will play what role and gives out the relevant information. The rest of the participants participate as detectives. The structure of the event is completely flexible based upon your specific requirements.

There is a gathering of the rich and famous at the Four Summers Hotel, celebrating and bringing in the New Year. People are eating and dancing and preparing to make a toast to the new year. Everybody has their glass of champagne in one hand and some streamers in the other, waiting for the clock to strike 12, to celebrate the arrival of 1956.

The countdown begins and as the clock strikes 12, Rob Dilan with his band, ‘The Tasty Green Peppers,’ start to sing the familiar New Year’s song Auld Lang Syne. The new year promises to be a very good one, lots of great opportunities.

Things in the room take a sudden turn, the lights go out and the guests start becoming restless. Suddenly, shattering the atmosphere, are three gunshots. Soon after the lights come back on, it is clear, somebody took this opportunity to shoot and kill their intended victim. This somebody, with deadly intent had murdered Brice Sprinting, who was lead singer of the band on stage. His voice had enchanted all those who heard him, making him very popular among the ladies.
