It is Medieval Scotland and you are about to meet the King, Queen, Prince, Princess and Merlin the Magician, Blitz will supply all the costumes accessories  waiting staff costumes PA, lighting staging and associated equipment. The performance team eat with the guests at a top table which also serves as a performance HQ. This event is designed for larger audiences and is improvised around a fixed framework.

 The ‘Royal Family’ officially arrive to fanfares, are introduced by Merlin. The ‘Royal Family’ visit the tables and chat to the audience and Merlin does some close up magic at the tables.

Between the soup and Main courses The Royal Family’ invite audience members to join them in a medieval dance, costumes music and PA supplied by Blitz.  At the end of the dance the participants re-take their seats. 

At the end of the main course The ‘Royal Family’ organise a ‘joust on horseback’ first choosing Knights, Ladies, Grooms and Jesters to take part and inviting each side of the room to cheer for their respective champions. Costumes weapons and ‘horses’ supplied by Blitz.

At the end of desert course the ‘Royal Family’ decide to hold an auction (of an audience member.) The Queen wins and takes her prize outside to claim her ‘winnings’.  The Prince and Princess, who now are feeling  left out demand that they too should have a marriage partner. They choose one each from the audience and the king conducts a marriage ceremony. They leave the room with their spouses. A little later they all return with their ‘victims’ who are by now dishevelled be-smirched with lipstick and looking thoroughly tired out, we can only guess at what horrors have taken place!

 Merlin, who is now outraged at the behaviour of the ‘Royal Family,’ confronts them and through a non pyrotechnic effect turns them to stone and trounces out of the room leaving them standing there. He quickly returns and introduces them as actors to the audience they all take a bow. If there is music or disco to follow the King will introduce the ‘minstrels’ or as they are known in modern parlance the Disco.

A great corporate and family fun evening.

 

Some Blitz Murder Mysteries and other Blitz performances may be, by the nature of their content, more suitable for adult audiences. Parents are advised that most of our Murder Mysteries contain adult material that may not be suitable for younger people under the age of 13. Blitz will not alter the content of a Murder Mystery if younger people are in the audience as we feel this would compromise the performance and may effect the enjoyment of other audience members.

WARNING! THIS MURDER MYSTERY MAY NOT NOT SUITABLE FOR MINORS

Let’s step back to 1959 and enjoy a ‘warm’ welcome to the Makemore Ballroom full of swinging chicks and Teddy Boys. Can you discover who left the garroted body in the hallway? It wasn’t Robert Supwood was it? Or the vicitms girlfriend Sonia Foot? Perhaps the barmaid Beryl Figgis had something to do with it or even maybe his best friend Duane Thrust. Who’s to know? Well you are hopefully!

 This mystery is NOT  A MURDER MYSTERY but a mystery dinner and is still a dark puzzle surrounding the ‘perfect crime’. Set in 1718 on board the pirate ship Dark Dancer a thief has stolen Captain Habbakuck Sprunt’s most treasured possession, the fabulous and legendary jewel ‘The Eye of Ra’ from a locked cabin on board the Dark Dancer. As a member of the audience you have been captured along with the other landlubbers by this motley crew and are being held to ransom, but the Captain may do a deal with you if you can uncover the scurvy dog who stole his ‘precious’. This mystery beggars the question, not why, but how on earth was it done?

This mystery is NOT  A MURDER MYSTERY but a mystery dinner and is still full of sinuous paths, veiled secrets and dark intrigues. Set in 1889 a phantom like thief has stolen the fabulous ‘Jewell In India’s Passage’ from a locked room in Hobbs End Hall during an evening soiree. You cannot possibly suspect young Abaris Feende, can you? Or the aged butler, Spasm or surely it couldn’t have been the owners of Hobbs End Hall, Easley and Gingold Breastwork….. Could it? Might it be that there is a tenuous link with an infamous character called Jack? Whoever it was seems to have committed that most elusive of all sins. The impossible and perfect crime……. Or is it?

A very stormy murder mystery

It’s 1925 and a night that will be remembered as “the night of the great storm”. The worst storm in living memory. The village of Hawkwind by sea is completely cut off from the outside world and the villagers (that’s you!) are sheltering in the church hall courtesy of the vicar Rev Thrashing, teas served by Daphne Droopbussel (The Chutney Queen) until the worst is over. But maybe…….. the worst is yet to come………….

Set in April 1912. Society people, rich families led by the Beeble Smeetch dynasty whiling away their boring existence, amusing themselves by dabbling in the latest fashionable trend including that most dark and forbidden of all the sins – Murder, but committed by whom? The gentle Reverend Honeyman or perhaps the strange and creepy Dr Leache. This is murder with an ironic and astounding sting in the tail.

In this modern fast-forward world of ‘IT’ and computer wizardry it was perhaps inevitable that eventually someone would commit a murder using a PC! Could that someone be Mac Lapptopp, Dorothy Comme, Fortran Wormwood or even Cleatus Plus or perhaps Thruxton Babbltt. Would anybody notice the demise of a nerd? Will the investigating officer be obliged to wear an anorak and constantly speak unintelligible jargon ?

OK OK Alright already. Today’s Wedding of Antony and Tina may be a Mafia affair but who would have thought that Don Cannelloni would be murdered at his own sons wedding? Least of all his number two Guiseppe ‘The Belly’ Linguini. Perhaps the answer lies in the old adage ‘He who lives by the sword dies by the sword’. Question these suspects at your own risk!

Unspeakable horror at Sir Robert Fosdyke’s All Electric Travelling circus. The great ejaculator has been blown to bits with his own cannon during the matinee performance. Kolic the clown seems upset, as does Madam Tzarina the mysterious Gypsy fortune teller. And who is Annette? Its up to you to interview the ringmaster Ury Fosdyke and the ‘Mighty Atom’ and’ Lady of Rubber,’ Brenda Loosefarthing. See if you can pick up the pieces of this 1930’s mystery.

A 1931 traveling theatre company makes a grisly discovery just before curtain up on the opening night of their new production of ‘Burke and Hare’. It must have been one of the company, but how was it done? and who done it? The cast are indeed a strange bunch of people, but which of them is strange enough to commit this murder. Can you put your finger on the culprit? Who could have ended the life of Siegfried Solomon the producer, but, more to the point how was it done? A puzzle indeed.

Set in a Golf Club in the present day, A competitor has come to an untimely and horrific end during the Presidents Cup competition. Egnell Pump, the club pro is under suspicion as is Linklaeter Spasm and his wife Hermione, and Mr and Mrs Swallocks. Surely these upstanding pillars of the community could not have had a hand in this foul deed, and what is so special about the 17th hole, Hangman’s Drop?

Is everybody happy? Set in 1966 in Saplin’s Holiday Camp, (or on a cruise liner). The evening of the variety show ends in mayhem and nightmare as jaded comedian Mike Brash is murdered. Which one of the motley holiday crew committed this foul deed, or was it all of them? Only you and the policeman can decide…. or can you?

A 1970’s Musical Murder Mystery most suitable for larger audiences up to 100 people

WARNING! THIS MURDER MYSTERY MAY NOT BE SUITABLE FOR MINORS OR PEOPLE OF A NERVOUS DISPOSITION

Free love, free speech, free everything in the swinging sixties and seventies. To say that this murder is a mystery would be the understatement of the year. The police are not even sure what killed the manager of the fading rock band Dainty June. There is a mixture of sex, drugs, rock and roll, intrigue, jealousy and hate, all rolled up in a tangled web of deceit bound to baffle the cleverest detective.

A HOT Egyptian Murder Mystery

Its 1934 and the stifling heat of the Valley of the Kings, Egypt has only served to arouse the passions of the Mounteasy expedition who are searching for the tomb of Rhamalot III. Hector Hosebeast was the victim , and all the members of the expedition are suspects. Lord Montgomery Mounteasy and his ‘friend’ Phluphy Phlushette. The camp manager, Toi Lipshitz and even the moody and brooding Ken Henbison. Inspector Harted from the Cairo police seems to be totally mystified.

THIRD DEGREE BURNS

Burns

Touring north east Scotland from January 2017

 

Third Degree Burns is a two-act musical-comedy farce with a difference! Featuring traditional, and maybe not so traditional music by a small band of musicians who are also members of the seven-strong cast. Each act runs for approximately 40 minutes. There will be a 15 minute interval.

The play is set in the hall of the fictitious small Scottish village of Auchenweary in the present day on Burns night to which all the local worthies are, of course invited as they are each year without fail, to celebrate the Great Bard in their rigidly traditional way.

The Speeches have been dusted off from last year and all seems well except: This year the whole event has been organised by a bumbling and egotistical English businessman who, although new to the area has very definite views about how the event should be run, and that is:  To be used as a means to advance his growing business empire. He arrogantly ignores accepted protocols and long held ancient traditions and sweeps aside all advice, thinking he knows best……….What can possibly go wrong?

 

 

 

The true story of a dazzling scientific discovery during the second half of the 18th century. It tells how revolutionary thinker Lord Monboddo, his brilliant daughter Eliza and the poet Robert Burns risked all in the pursuit of truth…

The songs are well crafted, catchy and memorable…Tragic yet romantic…Joyful yet sad…With plenty of passionate patriotism to boot.

*Aberdeen Press & Journal*

 An engaging and inventive show… A lavish production…this new musical grips its’ audience.

*Aberdeen Evening Express*

Lord Monboddo – The Enlightenment Man, centres on the life of James Burnett, recognised as one of the earliest exponents of evolutionary thought and a key character in the Scottish Enlightenment of the 18th century. As Monboddo struggles to rationalise his beliefs on the roots of man, and have them taken seriously, a romance blossoms between his beloved daughter, Eliza, and the young Robert Burns, but the tale was to end in tragedy.

Written by award-winning journalist and filmmaker David Ewen, the show is brought to life by the creative team at Blitz Entertainment Ltd International, led by director Muzz Crandon.

“Along with his peers, Monboddo explored the belief that mankind and the great apes – in particular the orang-utan – shared similarities too close to be considered coincidence,” says James Burnett.

For further details on the show, visit the website (www.monboddo.com) and you can also follow the team on Twitter (www.twitter.com/LordMonboddo) and Facebook.
