Conga Line Breaks Out at Mob Memorial Service


With a commitment to put the FUN back in FUNERAL, BigTime Murder Productions opened it’s weekly public Popcorn Mystery show “The CodFather” at the legendary Prescott in Ottawa’s Little Italy, this past Saturday evening. The full house showed their appreciation with a resounding standing ovation at the end of the 2-hour performance. This marks BigTime’s first series of local public shows in well over a decade.


“It was unbelievable – from the moment we arrived they kept us screaming with laughter. Our entire group loved it.  I can’t wait to see it again” said audience member Christine Cordeiro.  “Mystery fans have been asking for a reasonably priced, funny, interactive professional mystery show that didn’t include a meal, so that’s what we’ve done;  “The CodFather” is an after-dinner entertainment experience. Showgoers are encouraged to get dressed up as a long lost family member if they like, but it’s not mandatory – they can still get a MugShot onsite and sign the memorial book on the casket before enjoying non-stop laughs during the show”, said company owner and professional actor, Peter Dillon.  Complimentary popcorn is served during the performance, which is rated PG (Gun play but no bad language).


For over 25 years BigTime Murder Productions has entertained hundreds of thousands of people at private events throughout Ottawa, Toronto and around the world.  Each year they produce over a hundred interactive events.  The CodFather at the Prescott marks BigTime’s first return to public shows in Ottawa in well over a decade.
