Chuck Kovacic has written and produced interactive "mystery" events for numerous organizations and company programs for more than 20 years. "I have always wanted to create such an offering for my fellow Sherlockians, and inspired by the BBC SHERLOCK, I'll guarantee them an entertaining evening!"
his is an interactive mystery event with each guest playing the role of a detective whose job is to assist Sherlock Holmes in solving the case.
The level of participation is up to you: if you choose, you may fully embrace the event and track down clues like a bloodhound. Or if you see yourself as more of a Nick and Nora Charles type, you can hang back and have a cocktail or two in the bar.
We ask that you provide some personal information (home and cell phone numbers, e-mail address, and your physical home address). Using this information, guests will receive some background and clarifying information. The mystery does not start the night of the event, it actually will commence about a week or so prior. In addition, the personal information provided will be used to send additional clues to guests. Not all guests will receive the same clues and clues will arrive at different times and by different methods, so be aware!
Portions of this mystery were inspired in part by the PBS series, "SHERLOCK," some guests (that provide their phone numbers) will be receiving information via their cell phone as the "Mystery" progresses.
Other clues will also be provided throughout the evening with a portion of the event taking place outdoors, you may need a coat or wrap for cooler November weather or in the event of rain an umbrella. Please plan and dress accordingly.
