It’s the 80s. The time of shoulder pads, big hair and bright colours, new romantics, denim and skin tight jeans. So why not grab your digital wrist watches and your fluorescent socks, leave your Rubics cube behind on the shelf and join us for Murder at Club Tropicana.
Club Tropicana is where it’s at. Membership is strictly limited to those who are rich and famous, and once inside you’ll find yourself continually brushing shoulders with pop idols and celebrities. Club Tropicana has everything. Cocktails by the pool, sun, sea, sand and a nightclub to work on your dance moves.
Unfortunately this evening, the club also has a dead body on its hands. The pop idol celebrity – Rinse, who had been staying at the club on retreat from his hectic schedule of appearances.
With a club full of celebrities with artistic temperaments the question is… who killed him and why?
George Wham – With gelled hair, tight t-shirt and skin tight jeans George always has that designer look and can be quite narcissistic.
May Donner – Always in vogue with the latest fashion, May Donner is both stylish and sexy and dresses to show off her figure and fabulous dance routines.
Don Jon Bovi – Wearing enormous sunglasses and dressed entirely in denim, Don gives love a bad name and really lives life on a prayer.
Cheryl Fizz – Fond of bright colours and skirts that tear away, Cheryl is a bouncy girl with a lot of lipstick.
Simon Bon-Bon – A new romantic with big hair and a casual jacket look, Simon Bon-Bon is every girl’s heartthrob.
Kim Tame – Young, blond, tanned and busty – Kim has everything going for her, and makes the most of it whatever she wears!
A participative murder mystery evening is an evening with a difference.
Rather than going out for a meal and being “entertained” by our professional team of actors, here YOU are the suspects!
Participative murder mysteries are great fun for those who love to “ham it up”. If you are chosen as a suspect on the evening you’ll be given your character booklet for the night which will contain any lines you must deliver. You’ll also be given information that your character knows about other suspects and background information you will be revealing about your character throughout the evening. If you need any props we’ll provide them too, all you need to do is turn up, in costume and be prepared for a great night out!
You will be led through the mystery by an inspector, who will be providing you with case information as the evening progresses, as well as helping you all to get in the mood. At the end of the night the inspector will also deliver a summary before you have to guess which of you did the dirty deed. Finally, at the end of the evening, the inspector will reveal all by providing the solution and arresting the guilty party! (Don’t worry – all arrested guests are returned!)
A typical evening runs like this:
7.00pm – Arrive at your venue. Have a drink at the bar and admire each others’ costumes. Depending on the mystery plot you might also be greeted by the “soon to be deceased”. Your character booklets will be provided as you arrive to give you time to “get in character” and if you are chosen as a suspect as part of a larger gathering then you will also be briefed.
7.40pm – The murder is announced! (usually by a scream!)
7.45pm – The inspector arrives and announces the mystery. You will be asked to introduce yourselves.
7.55pm – You are escorted through to your dining table for your first course.
