The CEO of FocusTec Laboratories just called an emergency online meeting. A large sum of money has been stolen, and the guilty party is on the call. Can you use your detective skills to help catch the mastermind before the meeting is over?
MISSING MILLIONS - HOST FOR YOUR CITY/EVENT
Grapevine Escape is proud to present our ONLINE mystery - Missing Millions - A FocusTec Story!
There are four distinct parts to this performance:
PRE-SHOW (15 minutes) - Players are provided information about the show, what to expect, character biographies, etc
ACT ONE (~25 minutes) - This is where the story unfolds. Lots of questions and accusations!
INTERMISSION (10 minutes) - During this phase, the players will receive a URL to visit in order to enter their guess
ACT TWO (~15 minutes) - This is the reveal phase. Here, the guilty party (or parties!) will be revealed
CLOSING (~3 minutes) - This phase is where the statistics from the votes are displayed, and winners can be selected (see below)
For an additional fee, we are also able to provide prizes for the winners (who guessed correctly first), or for a random selection of participants. If you are interested in this, please reach out to us and we can coordinate!
Please note: Participants will need to open a browser and visit a separate website during intermission to make their "guess" as to who is the mastermind. Once their guess is complete, they will return to the Zoom meeting to witness how it all plays out.
Our ticket price for this one hour mystery is only $7 per computer or household. In other words, one entry allows a single computer to watch the performance. Friends and family can join together to watch, guess who is guilty, and make their vote!
There are options to have each household pay individually, or your organization can underwrite the event. In this case, we would provide an agreed promo code to you for delivery. If you prefer to utilize your own ticketing system in order to better serve your participants, that is also an option.
A total of 90 households can watch and play at the same time!
If more than 90 participants are needed, the limit can be increased for an additional $75.
HOW GREAT IS THIS!?! ARE THERE MORE MYSTERIES?
Yes, soon! We are currently writing scripts for additional shows.

CAST OF CHARACTERS
Ben Browning (Chief Executive Officer) – Ben is a middle-aged, technically smart leader of FocusTec Laboratories. Incredibly intelligent for his age, he doesn’t use that trait as a power tool. Over time, he has learned to control his anger by choosing his words carefully before speaking. As a result, he is visibly patient, but decisive when action is needed. He has the respect of his team, and the company likes what he has done to build FocusTec Laboratories.
Karen Taylor (Head of Security and Operations) – Karen has been around corporate technology most of her career. Karen always seems to have too many irons in the fire. Between her home life, job responsibilities and Amazon addiction, Karen appears to not have everything in order. However, at the end of the day, more often than not it is a controlled chaos. That is, except for her spending habits, which have her maxed out on credit cards. At work, her ability to navigate chaos makes her an excellent problem solver and an essential employee.
James Edge (Chief Technical Officer) – James is a career technologist. In a social setting, James can be the life of the party. However, at work, James often uses his knowledge to prove he is the smartest one in the room. Because of this, others sometimes put up defensive mechanisms around James, and often try to find “faults in his armor.” This leads to James always feeling attacked, having to defend himself. He lives alone with his cat, Marbles, admits to a gambling problem, and spends most of his vacations in Las Vegas.
Martha Moorehead (Chief Financial Officer) – Martha is smart and confident leader. She is the best at training her team to succeed and provides good feedback, and often her associates outperform other departments. Even with all that success, Martha has just gone through a bitter divorce that cost her a tremendous amount of money. She has an aura of “better than you”, so when she does show compassion, people are often taken aback by it.
Cindy Markussen (Director of Human Resources) – Cindy is a corporate executive who is a positive, welcoming, and agreeable person. She keeps this façade up to cover her problems with her teenage kids at home, who are often in and out of trouble with the law. At work, people like Cindy – they feel she truly listens to them. She has a very trusting nature, though sometimes to a fault. She often believes exactly what is told to her, whether or not it is actually true.
Diane Lowe (Finance Specialist) – Diane just graduated from a prestigious college. The tuition has left her with serious bills, and this job is helping her pay them off. Diane is a meticulous, hard-working associate. However, she is not an executive, and it shows – she is not comfortable speaking with them or speaking up when she has an opinion. She prefers to do her job and not get pulled into outside affairs.
