Prepare yourself for a mystery!

It' well into the evening at a swank Dallas restaurant. You've been invited by an investor friend to attend a grand dinner celebration marking the merger of two corporations owned primarily by your friend.

The last thing on your mind as you enjoy an elegrant meal is that something sinister and deadly is about to happen. Before your eyes a crime is taking place. But why and the who-dunnit appear to be a mystery, and only you, the other guest, and a few crack detectives must solve the mystery.

Considering this murder mystery is actually a well-planned, superbly acted theatrical production, it all sounds like fun.

The production is the handiwork of a pair of California producers who seem to know how to tell a good tale through the use of staging and performance.

Based in Hollywood, Keith O'Leary and Margo Morrison are world famous producers and creators of Murder Mystery Weekend, Inc., a national and highly successful theatrical production that makes living a murder mystery both real and entertaining. The Dynamic Murder Mystery Duo bring extensive individual backgrounds to the interactive, audience-participation genre of live thteare-realim to create a unique activity that offers something "out of the ordinary" for adventuresome spirits.

Since the mid-1980's, the Keith & Margo's Entertainment Franchise has produced events internationally, from Buenos Aires to Vancouver, from Puerto Rico to Hawaii, from Alaska to Acapulco, from the Bahamas to Paris.

The Los Angeles Times says "Keith & Margo have set the stabndard that all others try to emulate... they are masterminds of murder mystery...elegant."

The Dallas-based franchise has been entertaining private parties, corporate gatherings and special engagements that have introduced this unique kind of theatre to thousands who have participated. By visiting the official Web site, you can learn how mystery adventures are offered based upon the skill and interest of the group scheduled to be entertained. Murder mysteriy productions have been staged in restaurants, clubs, hotels, cruise ships and trains in and around Texas, and private parties are said to be a specialty.

With several types of adventure theater options, an event can be designed to fit your need and requirement, from simple team building productions perfect for the corporate get together to elaborate and complex mysteries designed for the avid mystery lover.

A special cruise ship murder mystery is currently planned by Executive producer Robert Banks, a multiday cruise of the Western Caribbean aboard a Carnival Cruiseliner that stops over in Cozumel, Mexico. For about the same price of a regular cruise ticket, you can opt to participate in a multilevel production that uses many compnents of your cruise as the mystery unfolds onboard.

Early this year the Historic Texas State Railroad that originates in Palestine was used to stage a murder mystery adventure. Participants were treated to a gourmet meal, an ongoing mystery production, and a wonderful ride through the piney woods of East Texas as they chewed on clues and eventually solved the case in time to roll back into the station.

It makes for a perfect special event, especially with the Halloween season approaching. For more information, visit
