Bring the Space theme to vivid life by transforming the venue into a space craft, on a virtual, intergalactic journey to a distant planet, to be colonized by the Cruise Automation team.
This immersive, multimedia experience features custom, futuristic environments on all 3 floors of the venue, interactive sci-fi characters, alien close-up magic, leading-edge dance performances and audience participation, for an out-of-this-stratosphere experience.
The pioneering Cruise Automation team will board Cruise One for an intergalactic journey of discovery to their new home world, Alter Domi - the first colony of its kind.
The evening’s entertainment plays out in four experiential phases:
Phase 1: Boarding the rocket, Cruise One, in preparation for takeoff, with character greetings in the entrance portal
Phase 2: Countdown to blast-off with exciting multimedia and custom soundscape
Phase 3: Exploring three futuristic environments, with entertainment in each
Phase 4: The space jump into the Hyperdrive Finale, an eye-popping multimedia experience
Upon arrival, guests hear an ambient, space soundtrack and the soothing feminine voice of the vessel’s Al greeting them.
"Welcome to Cruise One. Please proceed to the Main Deck. A crew member will prepare you for takeoff."
Guests are then greeted by the vessel’s 5 crew members (the entertainers), a diverse mix of humans and aliens, who act as the team’s guides.
Once guests are all aboard, they will experience the excitement of a countdown to blast-off. The countdown from 10 is displayed on the big screen on the Main Deck and everyone joins in. At 0, the sound of the rocket ship blasting-off fills the room, along with rumbling sound effects.
*Recommendation: Lights flicker on and off to signify blast-off, and the large screen displays a rocket ship launching. The DJ plays directly after take-off. Displays on the video screen and lighting design is provided by the venue. We will coordinate and manage the delivery of these elements from the other vendors.
For the exhilarating, multi-media conclusion, guests are invited to participate in a final countdown.
Once the space craft reaches the stargate, it makes a heart-pounding leap through a worm hole to Altera Domi, the final destination. Guests watch this momentous event on the Main Deck's big screen.
In celebration of this scientific feat, the cast launches into a high-energy, futuristic dance performance, infused with magic, for a satisfying and electrifying finale.
*This would be a perfect point in the program for Kyle Vogt to say a few words if this is on the agenda.
*The venue provides the video footage on the big screen. We will work with them to make this deliverable. We provide the sound effects.
Bring the Roaring 20s murder mystery theme to vivid life by first converting the Monroe nightclub into a swanky speakeasy complete with performing flappers and a slick jazz trio, then, staging a criminal caper for the guys and dolls of Tapingo to solve.
This custom, ab-so-lute-ly swell, interactive experience features razzle-dazzle close-up magic, Charleston-dancing jazz singers and music, a murder mystery-inspired plot, clue-dropping skits, feel-good audience participation and a show-stopping, whodunit-revealing finale.
The Monroe juice joint is hopping on a Thursday night and the fellas and dames are dressed to the nines and looking for some kicks.
Then, just as the golden-voiced jazz singers are performing a sultry rendition of “Ain’t Misbehavin”, a shrill scream chills everyone’s spines, and halts all music and chatter...
Jeepers Creepers! A big cheese from Tapingo is lying spread-eagle on the floor. Murdered.
The evening’s rip-roaring entertainment plays out in 3, fully customized, interactive phases:
Magic & Mayhem: Ritzy jazz music and doll-faced flappers greeting and performing snappy magic, until... a melodramatic murder causes mayhem!
Music & Mystery: Charleston-dancing flappers mingle with guests, croon with the band and perform titillating, pop-up, mystery-solving skits.
Whodunit: The performers and guests come together to determine whodunit in a thrilling game of elimination, for a riveting and satisfying finale.
Upon arrival, guys and dolls hear live, finger-snapping jazz music and are greeted by three sequin-clad flappers, who are reallookers.
Two of the dancing dames escort guests to their cocktail tables and then kick up their heels, while the other dazzles them with magic that will have everyone saying, "This is the bee's knees!"
A trio of dapper, jazz musicians play upbeat, well-known tunes from the Roaring 20s including “When You’re Smiling”, “Mack the Knife” and “Dream a Little Dream of Me” while guests dance the Charleston, Fox-Trot or free style.
The three fabulous flappers alternate between singing with the band, strolling in character and performing pop-up, audience-activating skits that provide guests with clues as to who committed the crime.
Fingers will be pointed, lies will be told, people will be double-crossed… but the truth will come out!
For a satisfying conclusion to a fun-filled evening of Roaring 20s misbehavin’ and mayhem, Tapingo guests gather by the stage to take a shot (no pun intended!) at whodunit. Only then is the motive, weapon and murderer revealed in one of two ways:
1) Flapper gals facilitate suspect eliminations with the assistance of guests, until the culprit is the only one left standing. (Package 1)
