How long will it take to orchestrate the mystery?

This mystery is designed to be an afternoon's or evening's entertainment. Give yourself two to two and a half hours to stage it - this includes time for audience interaction and food service.


What should the set look like?

The mystery takes place on the set of a 1950s TV show. You may want to simulate TV cameras and broadcast equipment. Dressing rooms for the "stars" can be set up in corners of the stage.


How much involvement does the audience have?

The mystery is highly interactive. The audience will have the chance to question the cast and announce their solutions to the case out loud. The actor portraying Detective Thursday should be adept at handling an interview-type setting with an audience.


How large should the audience be?

Much of this will depend upon your cast's ability to field questions effectively. This mystery has been effectively used with an audience as large as 200 people.
