What People Are Saying about Our Murder Mystery Scripts.....

We bought one of your murder mystery scripts.  We were blown away, not only by the script, but by all the additional information given to help us produce our first show like this.  Thank you Lakeside!  Jim, The Little Theater of Riverside, Riverside Oklahoma  

Hey Tony and Marylou!   Our opening night was last night.  Omigosh!!!!  It was a huge success!!!  We had 118 people in the audience.  We've been extended into August and our general manager has asked to continue on with the next show! 
Your production packet was phenomenal and everything worked like clockwork.  I can sum up last night's experience in one word....PARTY!!!!  This is just the kind of entertainment that is needed in these tough economic times.  A breather from a hard day's work and it was a Wednesday night!  THANK YOU TONY! and MARYLOU!!   THANK YOU FOR MAKING ME LOOK GOOD TO THE GENERAL MANAGER!!!!!!

Hey Tony and Marylou!
   We just finished our first weekend of performances. The show went very well!  We haven't done Dinner Theater in Mount Vernon for about five years, so we weren't sure what to expect. We had a possible 192 tickets for the two days (96 per night) and we sold 128. The crowds were good.  We are sold out for the upcoming weekend, so that will be very interesting! 
  I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for all your help, suggestions, pictures, etc. You really helped me make this show a success 
                                                              Thanks again!    Ira Mowery

Sounds like a lot of money?  Hear us out...

Say you ordered a play from somewhere else, and they charged you $35.00/show for royalties. Then there's the $6.00/copy for scripts you'll need for every cast member. Maybe you have eight cast members in the show.  That's another $48.00. You're up to $83.00 already!  And what if you want to do more than one night? Say you want to do three performances. At $35.00/ performance that would be $105.00, plus the scripts--bringing the total cost up to $153.00!

For the one time fee of $75.00, you get the rights to perform up to ten performances.  No additional royalty fees And you get a copy of the script in Microsoft Word and permission to print or photocopy as many copies as you need for each cast member. No downloading!  Cast members are notorious for losing script copies.  No problem.  Just print out another one!  You can also contact us via email or phone with any production questions. Plus, you get everything else listed above, and more!
