Murder Mystery Synopsis:

The House of Groove Discotheque is hosting the annual Disco Fever Competition. As a result, groovy cats and foxy mamas will soon flock to the legendary hotspot to cut a rug with the rich and famous. You've been practicing your groovy moves all year in anticipation of this competition and are ready to boogie. You can't wait to jump into your best disco threads and win over the judges with your smooth moves.

But unfortunately, not all is going as planned. Dance duos have been in turmoil, contestants have been feuding, and scandals have caught the public's attention. Nevertheless, the club management hopes that the participant list will keep growing. So you have fingers and toes crossed that this drama doesn't interfere with your chance to shake your groove thing on the dance floor. You'll be there because you're no square. This is where your story begins.

    I had such a fun time planning and having this event. I hosted it for my birthday. My friends enjoyed and the night was full of fun and laughs. I did have some trouble with the timing of things but it still worked out really well. It's easy to adapt if you need to make a few changes.

    This was the third My Mystery Party that I’ve hosted. Everyone had a great time! My guests liked having characters based off real people to help with costumes. I’ll definitely be using another My Mystery Party in the future!

    I have done three mysteries from this company and they never disappoint. We had a great time at the disco! Host instructions were easy to follow, the kit didn't take too much time to prepare (although I've done three now and knew exactly what to do). Love hosting these kind of parties!
