The Mattatuck Museum has transformed its annual MATT by Night: Murder Mystery event into a COMPLETELY interactive online digital experience and the event is catching on. Given the current guidelines about public gatherings and social distancing, the Mattatuck staff and Murder Mystery Committee have taken a fan-favorite event and turned it into an experience that participants can tune in to from their homes.
The Mattatuck invites participants to travel 100 years back in time and celebrate the roaring 1920s with bootleggers, suffragettes, flappers, and mobsters alike! Online, guests will be able to interact with friends and Museum staff and have some safe and intriguing fun.
“We hope to give participants an exciting outlet to escape reality for a couple of hours and enjoy some good ‘ol fun,” says Cat Clark, the Mattatuck Museum’s Corporate and Foundation Relations Manager and member of the Murder Mystery Committee. “Even though family members and friends can’t get together in person right now, we have seen them sign up for Murder Mystery so they can spend some quality time together virtually.”
The Mattatuck have already had ticket sales come in from outside of Connecticut, including North Carolina and Illinois.
“This event is going to be the cat’s pajamas,” jokes Clark, keeping to the 1920s theme. “The cast is looking forward to bringing this year’s mystery to life in a new way and for an entirely expanded audience.”
Join the fun on April 23 from 7:00-9:00pm and see the Murder Mystery unfold. Access to the event will be e-mailed to registrants the week of and there, guests will be able to watch the opening scene, interrogate the suspects live, inspect the clues, and figure out WHODUNNIT!?
