Death at the Diner Murder Mystery Party - 1950s Diner Sock Hop

Death at the Diner Murder Mystery - 1950s Sock Hop at the Diner

It’s been a successful first year of business for the Lightning Diner – a joint where you get your grease faster than lightning – and it’s time to celebrate. Whether you’re a jock or a square, a greaser or a paper shaker, a hip cat or an outta-sight chick, you’re invited – and what could be more of a gas than having a Sock Hop?

But before the poodle skirts have time to start swaying, a death occurs and it appears to be the result of…murder!

Can you finger the culprit before the fuzz arrives to shut the joint down? Piece together the clues to work out who has ‘ordered up’ murder! This Murder Mystery will give you the chills...that are multiplying!

Celebrate your special milestone event or corporate function with a Murder Mystery dinner party. Speak to us about what sort of game will suit your guest list and event requirements the best!

This theme is great for groups who like to don their dancin’ shoes to groove! Guests can come as any of the colourful characters from the 1950s era – some costume ideas below!

One host for the evening is a must!

Your guests will have no trouble getting into character and immersing themselves in the plot when they are greeted at the door by their flamboyant host.  The game will proceed without you having to do anything but enjoy yourself, as the host takes charge of all elements of the evening’s game. 2 or More Hosts... This will provide your evening with the extra element of comic interplay between 2 or more highly skilled performers, ensuring the evening is fast paced and totally interactive.
