Team Building Guest Speaker Murder Mystery
The team is STILL talking about what a great time they had and how much they enjoyed your production and your team!You all provided us a wonderful evening of fun - the rhythm was perfect.... not too fast and not too slow, the personalized jokes hit the mark and made us laugh till we hurt, you've helped us discover a few more nicknames (Dr. Evil is now an accepted character at staff meetings), and even got Chris U. to loosen up and hug someone!Thank you for the great evening of entertainment.It was the "frosting on the cake" for our off-site!
Team Building Interactive Workshop
I wanted to thank you and your "Dial M" performers for the wonderful job they did yesterday.We were so impressed by the performers and we had a great time!The murder mystery was also valuable as a teambuilding tool for my group, as we gained some important "take-aways" in learning how we interact as teams.Again, we were very pleased with all the impressive actors and we will definitely keep your group in mind for future activities!
All the best, Leah

I have been wanting to write you a note to let you know how wonderful the event was - largely due to you and your team. Thank you so much for your ideas, guidance and hands-on interaction with the planning stages. It was really great to work with a professional such as yourself who understands the "corporate culture" and turn what would have been a typical corporate function into something really special and memorable. Thanks again, Peggy. I look forward to working with you in the future.

Just wanted to thank you again for the "AWESOME" job you did last Wednesday with our Murder Mystery event. Bob was really happy with the way everything went, he especially enjoyed the little personalized jokes/touches that you added. We all had a great time....even the grumpy people. We will definitely keep Dial M in mind for future Northstar Events.
Hope you had a good weekend, and let's keep in email touch.

Bravo! Your show was great! Everybody had a ball! It was perfect for our goal of teamwork and fun. Besides the hilarious events, everyone raved about the way your actors tailored the show to our group by including names and "inside" bits of information known only by the 161 people who were there. Let me assure you that if you ever want a recommendation in the future, I would be thrilled to oblige.

LOOK ALIKES & IMPERSONATORS
The event went great. "Humphrey Bogart" was awesome. We had him and a couple other look alikes stationed near the entry and photo-op section. All the guests loved them, and enjoyed having their pictures taken with the stars. "Billy Crystal" was good too. He worked real well with the VPs, so that was great.
All in all, the night was a huge success! Thanks for all your assistance.
Tina Turner Show
The show was GREAT. Very professional, enjoyable, entertaining and worth every cent! She was very professional. She was on time. In character. Established good audience participation and connection almost immediately. A talented vocalist and dancer with a great sense of humor. The guests LOVED her and her performance. Many asked me for her referral and approached her for future events' contact. Working with Dial was very pleasant, easy and professional. I would call upon you again. I have also shared your contact information with others, in particular, our club's manager in charge of special events.
Thank you VERY much for your services and many thanks to the talented Shari.

I wanted to take this time to thank you tremendously for the absolutely wonderful event that you helped us put on. Your show was fabulous and al in our party had a great time. The comedy left us all in stitches. I loved the way you incorporated our associates and company into the play. The venue at the Stinking Rose was also wonderful. The food was delicious and the accommodations were a perfect setting. Thank you again for helping us plans our event and making it so memorable.
Darren Kindgren. Well Point
I'm writing you on behalf of our entire department (Communication Media) here at Hughes Space and Communications Company to tell you how much we enjoyed your murder mystery show at our department holiday party at the Stinking Rose Restaurant on December 10."I've talked with many of the people who attended, and I have not heard one negative comment from anyone. What I have heard are reactions reflecting my own; for example:' It was a fun evening from start to finish. The clue-matching exercise at the beginning was a good mixer without forcing anyone to participate if they really didn't want to.' The production was good theater in every respect. It was well staged amid severe space constraints. Everyone in the company was obviously well rehearsed and prepared. The homework that you did to personalize the show all the way through was very effective and very funny.Every member of the cast was splendid. They were all skilled actors, seamlessly blending the scripted material with the considerable amount of improv required. Further, they were all 'into' their work, taking it as seriously and wholeheartedly as I would expect of a good cast on stage anywhere. They obviously took pride in what they were doing. Even the song and dance number at the end was terrific. Along with everything else, you all can sing harmony, too! Outstanding! Thanks so much for a great evening!
Joan Rydbeck, For the Communication Media Department
Hughes Space and Communications
The verdict is in...and as expected, Murder at the Mirage is the talk of the town! I just wanted to say thank you once again to you and the entire staff at Dial "M". Your professionalism and ability to work with us in our attempt to create a special weekend for our guests certainly paid off. Your staff is definitely 'one of a kind.' I have never met a group of individuals that work together, mesh so closely, or enjoy what they are doing so much as this group of actors. Each member of the group sparkled individually, and when their talents combined, they lit up the room like the stars on a clear night. I'm sure that their enthusiasm and dedication to you and Dial "M" has been beneficial to Dial "M" becoming so successful in just a few short years. I'm glad that we could be a part of your company's anniversary, and I'm even happier that The Mirage was your first 'adventure' in Las Vegas. We're definitely planning to use your company again. Once again thanks for the great production and continued success to you.
Dona Cassese, Director Club Mirage Casino
Sorry I didn't get a chance to meet you on November 21st; Michelle was equally as charming. What I neglected to tell you about our gig at Gladstones is that a number of our Executives are calloused, cynical Murder Mystery veterans. No b.s. here. They RAVED about the performance as being one of the most
entertaining murder mysteries they've ever seen. And the Circle of Excellence honorees were truly impressed. We're still getting compliments here from the attendees. Please pass these compliments along to your cast members. Please feel free to use me as a reference, and I will definitely keep your crew in mind to suggest to other organizations.

Good Morning Peggy,
We all think the Show WAS GREAT. The actors were absolutely entertaining, fun and very personable. We received lots of comments and I made some calls to some of our clients.
