The Frick & Frack Show Murder Mystery is a specialized event that we invented that is more of a comedy routine than a murder mystery show. The event begins with our detective walking into the room and announcing that there has been a murder. Everyone in the room is going to help to solve the crime, and with their help, justice will be done. The detective explains a scenario and then explains how the game works. The detectives will talk to people from the audience and anything that the detectives say is a fact is a fact. So if a guy named George is referred to as Frank by the detectives, for the mystery his name is Frank. We have them play characters and call them other names because we don't want people to think that we're claiming that they're capable of murder, etc. It's all meant to be fun and enjoyable.
We generally will approach people as suspects, witnesses, experts and people from the community that were effected by the crime. It should be noted here that while we are dealing with a crime, it is more playful than dramatic and the event is designed to help people to gain perspective and comfort when even dealing with some of the worst of topics.
We then have three ways to solve the crime. First, we can solve it ourselves in front of the audience. Second, we can call individuals up from the audience to prosecute the person they think did it. The audience would then applaud for who they thought did the best job from your group. Third, we could have each table come up with their own solution. Rather than reading the answers, we could have them make presentations. This benefits bonding and teamwork. Fourth, each individual can write their own answer. This is all usually done with the main suspects on stage.
The objectives are to get people out of their comfort zone in a safe environment and to work together as a team.
For winners and fun participants we bring small prizes. We don't want anyone to feel overly upset at not winning. The objective, after all, is to help with self esteem and a sense of camaraderie.
As mentioned, this is more of a stand-up comedy routine than a murder mystery, but is a great way to have fun and laughter.
The idea is to help with skills development as the participants have to use cognitive efforts to examine the behavioral issues of our suspects. When we have them exhibit characteristics that reinforce the negative effects of certain learned behaviors, the event can be psychoeducational by helping participants to recognize certain traits and perceive them in a negative light.
If you would like to talk about these shows and how they can help your group, we would love to hear from you.
If you would prefer to find more information about other versions, such as using our actors or your people going table to table talking to everyone as suspects, more of a traditional murder mystery, or having everyone participate in a Clue Party, feel free to use the navigation of the website to review our Cambridge Solution options, the Straight Murder Mystery and the Clue Party.
