Mystery Party: Missing Birthday Cupcakes
You don’t have to hire actors or memorize many lines to throw an exciting mystery party! This book offers the story, directions, cue cards and tips to create a successful thriller for tweens. There is also a link to download a free pdf file and print additional resources which includes a template for a cute invitation!
The mystery revolves around missing birthday cupcakes. Guest detectives (party-goers) have been invited to figure out what happened and who is guilty. This party works well for 5-20 guest detectives. Each guest detective or team will be given an Official Report form with prepared questions for the guest detectives to ask the actors. Each actor will have prepared answers they can refer to on cue cards. You will need 6 people willing to act easy roles and answer the prepared questions from the guest detectives. At least two of the actors will need to know the short 1 page story. The four remaining roles are very easy, and can be learned in minutes. The officer, Detective Cakes, will facilitate the party and shoot “crime scene” photos while the guest detectives interview the actors (witnesses and suspects). It is very important that none of the guest detectives know the story beforehand.
