Corporate Virtual Murder Mystery Parties?! Say what?!

July 6, 2022

That’s right, they’re a thing. With unprecedented change thrust upon us in recent years and many companies shifting to remote work, it only makes sense that a digital space for fun and team-building exists to keep everyone engaged and connected. At Live In Theater, we specialize in immersive, theater experiences, team-building, parties, and celebrations that are compelling, exciting, and interactive. In fact, it is our honor to have been named the top interactive theater ensemble in New York City for the past twelve years!


So, you may be wondering, “What does a virtual murder mystery party entail, exactly?” 


Well, the cornerstone of any good murder mystery includes a dynamic plot revolving around a few core characters with high stakes, high tension, and drama. There must be 

a murder (of course) and possibly a murder weapon, suspects, a detective (in this case, you!), plus clues to solve. What makes Live In Theater unique is the live feedback and participation from the audience. Our actors intimately know and understand their characters and the story plot, giving them freedom to improvise while keeping you on the edge of your seat. 


As the story unfolds, you and your team will be collecting data on our characters for solving the mystery later: investigating eyewitnesses, looking for clues, seeking to understand the killer’s motives, interrogating suspects, and taking context into account to help your team uncover what really happened. Collaborating to solve the murder mystery, some of your team members will catch details that others completely missed. Everyone has their part to play in solving the mystery and contribute their unique abilities to the overall success of the group. Virtual murder mystery events create a super fun environment that builds camaraderie within your team outside of work. You and your team will have a one-of-a-kind experience as no two shows are ever the same. 


You can count on us to provide the story, actors, props, and mystery, but can you and your team work together to solve it?

Why a Virtual Murder Mystery Should Be On Your Calendar

These days, the status quo no longer does the trick in the workplace when it comes to benefits. More and more companies today are pivoting to include more unique benefits to their team as part of their salary package. Ten years ago, these benefits included gym memberships, meal plans, etc. but today, intriguing benefits look more like investment in personal and professional development, fun and creative ways to keep the brain sharp, and community-building options. 


While innovation was an issue prior to the pandemic, retention and wage and benefits competition have climbed their way to priority one since 2020. Lockdowns forced many companies to go fully virtual. Then, team members had unprecedented freedom of choice and mobility in their careers, which ultimately threatened the stability of companies and corporations alike. Innovation, retention, and wage and benefits competition are among the top priorities of Western companies today.


In these rapidly changing times, you and your team need to keep creating ways to overcome obstacles. You want to retain your most valuable team members, keep them engaged and loyal, and innovate new solutions together. This is why our events have fared so popular in the corporate world because companies are at the forefront of change and adaptation in these modern times. Dare we say, a team-building murder mystery party fits the bill.

Murder Mystery = Team Building

A constantly changing landscape brings into focus values and priorities. A high priority in today’s world is investing in the growth of your team for the reasons mentioned above. Our Live In Theater events are not only fun and engaging, but actually serve a higher and more strategic purpose. Our events nurture the growth of your team and the individuals who make it up so that they can successfully reach a common goal together. 


A company is only as good as their team and a team is only as good as their least effective team member. Each person on your team has an important and specific role to play. Each team member brings their own unique perspectives and abilities to a given problem. It sets the whole team up for endless possibilities for accomplishment, but only if there is trust, effective communication, and cooperation. Solving a murder mystery together as a team has the potential for unknown qualities and strengths to emerge that can be leveraged for future success of the team. For example, you may notice some unsuspecting team members taking on a leadership role in the solving of this mystery—a quality you may not have recognized before that now opens up a whole world of possibility in the workplace. 


By facilitating a collective experience that involves each team member, we can increase the levels of trust, cooperation, and communication that leads to team building success.
