MAM After Dark

Join the Murder Mystery and experience the darker side of after dark.

Fri, Oct 20, 7–11 PM

Put on your detective hat, embrace your inner murder-mystery character—or simply leave the costumes to the suspects—and observe as a live game of Clue-like drama unfolds. Throughout the night, watch the scenes play out, and see if you can solve the crime. Follow updates here for more clues leading up to the event…

Meet the suspects:
The Curator “Maggie DeVille”
The Auditor “Rebecca Fines”
The Celebrity “Roxy Halloway”
The Intern “Benjamin Masters”
The Donor “William Pedigree”
The Artist “Peter LaFronte”
The Mobster “Frankie Biggs”

Clue #1: Visit three locations throughout the night where the scenes will be taking place in rotation – Windhover Hall, Gallery K109, and the Sculpture Court near the East End.

Clue #2: Keep an eye/ear out for connections between DeVille and LaFronte; Fines and Biggs; Masters and Pedigree.

Clue #3: Don’t miss the scene culmination and chance to vote for “Who ‘Dun It” in Windhover Hall at approx. 22:00 hours; followed by a climactic musical set by Foreign Goods. The MURDER MYSTERY GRAND PRIZE includes: Dinner for four at Safe House, four tickets to the Halloween night production of Bell, Book and Candle at the Brumder Mansion, and two tickets plus a backstage tour to Milwaukee Ballet’s La Boheme.
