I was particularly impressed with your ability to adapt to our changing needs regarding size of the party, venue, cocktail hour, and meal requirements. It was a pleasure to just have to deal with you and let you work out all the details with the restaurant and the performers. It was also great having one set price per person, which included tax and tip, with no hidden charges at the end. As to the party itself, was all had a blast! We were so impressed that O'Casey's was able to serve 81 people so efficiently with deliciously prepared (and hot) food, and the food choices were great. The actors at the event were wonderful (and so funny) and we all had a great time interacting with them and grilling them to try to discover 'who did it' and 'why.' Thanks again for doing such a great job and helping to make our holiday party such a big success."

The actors and storyline were wonderfully entertaining, and the children were completely engrossed in gathering cIues and solving the mystery.
