Want to Host a Murder Mystery Kitchen Show? Get the Script Here!

In summary, Paula developed an original theme for her 1st show, an express show where she would not stumble so much in the preparation. Her concept was a murder mystery to solve using guests who randomly chose an alibi. One of her prepared alibis was a tool that was not used in one of our recipes, so that person was the culprit. The show took an hour longer than Paula thought it would, and she should have used something more tested in terms of a party formula. Her show was "Murder in Margaritaville." If anyone is interested in the script, she will gladly e-mail it.

So, I decide to write an original theme for my 1st show - I TRIED to develop a murder mystery Kitchen Show. :p My concept was an express show (so I wouldn't stumble so much in the preparation until I am more "polished"), and the "game" would be, obviously, a murder to solve. I developed 4 characters (was originally planning 6), played by guests, whom I "cross examined". Each person randomly chose an alibi - i.e., they were at home preparing one of the featured recipes with a particular PC tool. One of my prepared alibis was a tool that was not used in one of our recipes - hence, that person's alibi was no good, and they were the culprit. I did my intro, the "rules", cross examined my 1st suspect, 1st recipe, 2nd suspect, plugging gift registries and fund raisers, 3rd suspect, 2nd recipe, 4th suspect. Then the guests were supposed to write who they thought did it. Originally I was going to do a drawing from everyone who got it right, but only 4 guests showed, and only 1 of them ordered (all other orders were outside orders :p ).

OK, so, major downfalls - I don't think I sold the "sizzle" enough discussing the recipes. Plus, everyone got a little TOO hyper, a little TOO into character (can you say "cat fight"?), and the show took an hour longer than I thought it would! I think it was WAY too much for a first show - I should have used something more tested in terms of a party formula. :p My bad.

Anyway, the "story" was "Murder in Margaritaville". If anyone is interested in the script, I will gladly e-mail it - perhaps you can help me fine-tune it for future use, if I am not too traumatized. And I know of several typos and rough spots I haven't fixed - just kind of a little burnt out from the initial write-up. However, you must be able to open .wps documents - I have Microsoft Works, and have found it PRETENDS it converts to .doc, but it LIES. OK, OK, sorry about the word processor frustrations. Since it is not .doc, I am not adding it on the forum.

Thanks for any help.

Wow! That really is ambitious. I have stayed pretty straight and narrow so far, just sticking to one recipe, which I am getting incredibly bored of making! I am anxious to try something new! I'm thinking a Mystery Host Show, to get my bookings up!!
 
funThat sounds like a great show theme. I am going to have my first show this coming Tuesday and I am kind of nervous. And I think that this would be a great thing to do, to calm me down and to have fun. So please e-mail me your theme. It would be great! thanks :) :)
 
I think it would make a great show. Can you e-mail it to me?

So we don't have so many posts requesting the script be emailed personally to them, can you post it here? That would make less work for you. Just a suggestion.

HelpIf someone can convert my file from .wps to .doc, would you please help me by letting me send you the file so it can be put into a format supported by the forum? I don't think many people can open my format, so sending it out really doesn't help a lot of people. Thanks much.
