Private Event

You can have a Murder Mystery Comedy Event all to yourself. Have us come to a location of your choosing or one of ours.  We need 15- 20 volunteers out of the audience to play parts in the show. You know you have a lot of fun characters who’d you love to see ham it up in one of our fun comedies. Choose who the volunteers are or let our cast of characters solicit the volunteers. This is a great team building event as it is participatory. You don’t just watch a show but become the show. Our cast of killers have been doing this type of event since 1992. We are quite experienced at working with different groups and are prepared to help your guests have a good time.

In the years since we started back in 1992 we have worked with many restaurants and banquet facilities. We have made the Library Restaurant & Pub as our home facility since 2013. 

If you need help knowing where to start planning your private show experience, we can help. We have partnered with several local venues in the greater Indianapolis area and can offer all-inclusive packages. CALL (317) 937-9689 and let us help you plan the perfect group outing!

Groups of 20+ Attending a Public Show

For groups of 20 or more attending a regular public show, there are several perks:

– Your 21st admission is COMPLIMENTARY! That means one FREE ticket or $50 taken off your total balance due!

– Your $1 per ticket processing fee is waived! That’s $20 off for a group of 20!

– Guaranteed tickets! Secure your group with a signed contract and a 25% non-refundable down deposit, and we will guarantee your tickets. No ‘mystery’ as to if your group can get in! Your final head count and remaining balance due is needed two weeks prior to your show date. Please note your group must decide how to manage their bar tab for the night of the event, either individual tabs presented to and paid by each guest or one collective tab presented to and paid by the group coordinator. All additional charges incurred at the restaurant are entirely the group’s responsibility and must be settled prior to leaving the facility.

Why: We look for 15-18 volunteers out of the audience to play minor characters in the audience. How well do you know your group. A bunch of outgoing souls. Then a private show would best serve you. Your people would be playing all the parts and having fun.

Let’s say though you are not sure everybody in your group would feel comfortable playing a part. Then I would suggest joining the public show where we would find some of our volunteers out of the other guests there that night.

You are interested in some time alone with your folks that night? Here is what we have done for some groups. We seat at 5:30 and start at 6:00. We let the group have the room all to themselves before we got started. The remaining audience was kept out of the room till the group was finished. The group had a little ceremony before the public was allowed in.

If you are interested in creating a PREMIUM event just for your group, a Private Show is what you’re looking for! Advance booking is required and pricing will vary, so please call our Group/Private Sales line at (317) 937-9689.
