MURDER MYSTERY ATTENDEE NOTIFICATION: When ordering Sharpo!® Entertainment Productions Murder Mystery events, Customer is strongly advised to inform their party guests that they are attending a murder mystery party PRIOR to guests' arrival to event, or at the very latest, UPON guests' arrival. Sharpo!® Entertainment Productions provides a greeter to hand out Murder Mystery Welcome Letters as guests arrive. A "Cold Opening" is defined as a murder mystery event where the audience is unaware that a murder mystery event is happening until a "murder" is staged in their presence. Customer understands that a Cold Opening Murder Mystery is a deviation from our highly acclaimed interactive hit show format and audience response can be unpredictable. Sharpo!® Entertainment Productions strongly advises against Cold Opening Murder Mysteries. The exception would be when surprising a guest of honor, IE a surprise Party for a Birthday. All of the other party guests should still be informed they are attending a murder mystery surprise party for their guest of honor.
