DROP DEAD DISCO – Murder Mystery Script

Drop Dead Disco Murder Mystery Script

Our murder mystery script, Drop Dead Disco, is a funkadelic event with an OCD owner, a paranoid dancing queen and a blind disc jockey all hustling under the disco ball. Requires 3 male and 3 female professional improv actors or eager amateurs, some props and minimal rehearsal time. Director notes tell you how to pull it all together. They are best performed as an improv script, with the dialogue being as a springboard into improvisation, but can also be used as a traditional scripts by memorizing the simple lines. Email us for a sample package.

Drop Dead Disco

         Dust off your disco duds, poof up your pompadour and get ready to get down at the hottest spot this side of the seventies —  The Drop Dead Disco.

            Paulie, Esther & Cotton Blend are putting aside their personal differences and pulling out all the stops to put a glow on your mood ring and a song in your heart. The Blend Siblings have inherited a discotheque. From inception to completion, the only thing the three agreed on was the name:  DROP DEAD. Somehow the business is making money. Lots of money. And tonight they are hosting a huge Disco Dance Contest. But things aren’t as peachy as they seem.

            Paulie Blend is a neat freak extraordinaire, and his life is going from bad to worse. The DJ is blind, his girlfriend left him, the Doorman isn’t what he seems, the Mob is moving in, his siblings are slobs, the disco is dirty and he wants everything cleaned up.

              Esther Blend has a secret source of income, a secret skill and a secret relationship. She wishes her bothersome brothers, especially Paulie, would drop dead. 

             Cotton Blend hired the blind DJ and the suspicious Doorman. When not in jail, Cotton is working to turn the disco into a casino. He likes to gamble and wants to be the house because the house always wins.

            Donna O’Shea, Disco Dance Queen and Paulie’s angry ex-girlfriend. Donna will do anything to win the dance contest. She’s a paranoid walking arsenal and extremely moody.

             Johnny Fever, a mobster and a loan shark and proud of it; with a secret obsession for auctions. Johnny loves Elvis, hates disco and is frequently outbid by Paulie on Ebay.

            Stevie Awesome, blind DJ who wants to keep her job and is quick to yell discrimination if anyone interrupts her continuous play and suggests being blind is a handicap to scratching vinyl.

           Hugo Grommet, the doorman, is supposed to be hot for Esther but seems to have a little something going on with Donna. He’s very interested in people’s financial information.

Drop down to the Drop Dead Disco and enjoy this burning inferno of fun. Do a little dance, solve a disco mystery, get down tonight, get down tonight.

  1. Sample please! Our auditorium is under construction so we are looking for a fun dinner/murder mystery script we could perform in the cafeteria! Is this appropriate for high schoolers to perform? Thank you!

    1. That sounds interesting. Hope you have a private space nearby for the ‘green room’ aka ‘place to hide the evidence and props’ for the bang-up ending!

    1. I’ve sent out your sample script. If by expansion packs you mean more parts for more actors, there isn’t anything written in but it’s easy to give each character a supporting character and they basically reiterate the same information. One of the characters just got out of prison so other people could ad lib as his ‘cell mates’ and like that. If you are interested in this we could talk and I will explain further.

      Thanks for you interest in our scripts!

  2. Hi I’d like to request a sample package of the Drop Dead Disco murder mystery. This is my first time participating in a murder mystery and this one seems to fit the theme for my party. I’ve never attended a murder mystery so I’m throwing my own and was told it’s best to purchase one.

    1. Excellent choice! I will get that right out to you. Be sure and contact me if you have any questions once you’ve had a chance to look it over. Keep you eyes open for shag wigs and platform shoes : )

    Thanks,

    1. Hi JJ – hmmmm. I guess it depends on the age of your thespians. I’ll send you the samples. I could also coach you on how to write on yourself and then you and the class would have to come up with the dialogue but the format and clues would all be in place. Send me you number if you want to talk.

  14. Hi!
    I’m searching for a script for our 2014-2015 Murder Mystery Dinner Theater performance (High School Drama Club). If possible, could you send me a sample of the Drop Dead Disco script?

    Thank you!

    Terry Craven

    1. You bet! The drama club could have a lot of fun with this. After you check out the script was can talk and I’ll answer any questions you have.

    1. The script sample should be in your email box now.
      Running time is approximately an hour and it is usually performed over two hours as interactive theatre. This means there are breaks of 10-15 minutes between the scenes where the ‘actors’ mingle with the group. Food is often involved. Anything from a four course sit down dinner to appy’s set out on tables throughout the venue. With the smaller food service the mystery could be completed in an hour and a half.

      The script is an ‘improv’ script which means some dialogue is included but mystery entertainment works best if it is performed as if it is actually happening. So the actors can memorize lines but it’s quicker and more fun if they just know what information needs to be gotton out and ‘talk’ (with great exaggeration and melodrama) to each other. This can affect the length of time it takes to complete the mystery as well.

  15. Are you still selling these murder mystery scripts?
    I would like to host a murder mystery dinner. A dinner and a show atmosphere,
    where the actors perform the play during the course of a 4 course meal. Would your plays suit this scenario?
    Please contact me and let me know.
