Earlier this week when I ventured out of my home office to check the mail, much to my surprise I received my first magazine that was already advertising for Halloween! Now if you're like me, you're thinking 'Halloween? It's only August!" I mean who can even think about Halloween with all of this hot, sticky summer weather, right?! But like all of the other holidays in Music City, Halloween is just another popular occasion to have a party! I'm going to try to attempt to put you, our readers, in the spooky, scary, candy corn flavored, Halloween spirit by recapping one of our most popular services: Murder Mystery Experiences! At Snyder Entertainment we are all about creating unforgettable moments in the Nashville and middle Tennessee areas. That is why we have added private Murder Mystery Experiences to our line up of great solutions! Do you remember playing the board game "Clue" when you were a child? This great product is essentially a LIVE GAME of Clue. We will bring the show and you and your guests will work together and against each other to solve the murder before the end of the performance. Your guests will be the suspects and one of them IS the murderer. They just don't know it yet. And if you bundle Murder Mystery with our other services such as a DJ package or Photo Booth you can turn your event into more than just a GAME! You can turn it into a EXPERIENCE!
Prices start at $800
Killin' it on Broadway: This theme is a one of a kind Murder Mystery written exclusively about Nashville!
