The company was orginally named About Town Tours and is now CHARLOTTE MURDER MYSTERY COMPANY, was founded in 2002 by Della Freedman, a long time resident of Charlotte, North Carolina. Della decided to create her company to perform Murder Mystery Shows and to provide a unique experience for the Charlotte community. She also offers professional acting work to other actors in the area.
Della grew up in New York City and attended Queens College as a Speech/Theatre Major. She also attended the HB Studio for acting in NYC. Della has produced, directed and starred in two television programs "Works In Progress" and "Small Town Stories." She has been involved in the theatre community for many years. She has been an on-air Announcer at the local Public Radio Station WFAE for 20+ years.
The company was rebranded with the name CHARLOTTE MURDER MYSTERY COMPANY on January 18, 2016 as the company moved into its fourteenth year of serving the community with a unique, professional and fun-filled form of entertainment. But whatever the changes, the business motto, says Ms. Freedman, remains the same. "Other companies talk about good customer service. We "ACT" based on that concept." “We’ll always be a murder mystery company dedicated to “killer” customer service.”
