Here's your Friday update on the history of A Touch of Mystery:

From 1986-1990, A Touch of Mystery performed our mysteries for private parties & fundraisers in Los Angeles. In 1990 I moved to the Bay Area where we began performing for special events at high end apartment communities. In 1992, we began performing on The River City Queen (one of Sacramento's Dinner Cruises) with a weekly show as well as at Lou LaBonte's Dinner Theater. This is where MYSTERY AT THE EARTHQUAKE SALOON was born!

Stay tuned for the next installment and have a mysterious weekend!

More A TOUCH OF MYSTERY history ...

In 1986 THE CATERED AFFAIR made it's premiere. It was performed at a private party in Beverly Hills and the guests didn't know they were attending a murder mystery. The characters were part of a catering service and one of the scenes called for Patti Perkie & Carla O'Day to fight over a gentleman that came to the bar to order a drink.

The scene started and the gentleman interrupted the ladies arguing over him by saying "That's ok, I really don't want a drink anyway." He walked away from the bar and went directly over to the host of the party and inquired; "Where in the word did you find these people?!"

When our lead character, Mrs. Stefano came running down the stairs screaming that her husband was dead in the bedroom, guests began screaming; "Who's dead, who's dead? and CALL 911!" 

Once the Inspector took over and started the investigation, the guests began laughing for the next hour as they solved the mystery!

In February 1985 I wrote my first murder mystery for my Manager's party. It was called MURDER AT THE FULLER ESTATE. In April 1985, A Touch of Mystery (for the perfect party!) was born.
