If you’re a realistic Texas actor with theatre experience in dramas, or a comedian with improvisation skills who can play a wise-cracking Detective, Murder Mystery Texas is interested in auditioning you. Our actors (suspects) are similar to undercover con artists since they blend into a group of real guests, secretly posing as one of them… all the while seated at a dining table, enjoying dinner.
Pretty sweet gig, huh? Oh, and, uh, very important: all parts are paid. We are also seeking organized, confident stage managers to serve as Master of Ceremonies for these ultra immersive experiences. So if you’ve got the chops and are adventurous, fill out the form below. And email us your mugshot and resume ASAP.
