You’re invited! It’s 1923, and the party seems endless at Jay Glittersby’s New York mansion—until a shot rings out, and an unwelcome guest is found dead. Was the motive revenge, jealousy, or greed? Is the murderer a flapping dancer, a jazzy musician, or a slyly deferential server?
Maybe it will be—YOU!
Please join us on March 31st—either as a suspect character or as a jury member who sees everything—for a Roaring ‘20s Virtual Murder Mystery Fundraiser via Zoom! It’s a joint fundraiser to support the Apollinaire Play Lab and our friends at the Chelsea Kiwanis Club. The Chelsea Kiwanis Club champions a variety of philanthropic and service projects to assist the children and families of Chelsea, including the Apollinaire Play Lab. You may also have seen Kiwanis’ recent diaper drive which raised $2,000 to purchase diapers for Chelsea families in need. Your support of this fundraiser helps two great organizations accomplish much for the children of Chelsea!
Can you figure out who dunnit? Whether you choose a fun role or sit back and observe as a member of the jury, everyone attending the event has a chance to win a cash prize for being the first to correctly guess the murderer, the motive, and the means!
The leading role of Jay Glittersby will be played by Kody Grassett, whom you may have seen in Apollinaire’s productions of The Importance of Being Ernest and The Strange Undoing of Prudencia Hart, among others, but there are plenty of roles left for you!
Step 1: Choose your role (and purchase raffle tickets!). You will be emailed easy instructions and a dossier on your character. All registered participants will be sent a Zoom link the week of the event.
Step 2: Choose your virtual Zoom background from this glamorous gallery. Does the library suit you, or is the billiard room more your style?
Step 3: Get yourself into character (if only from the waist up!) with some classic Gatsby-esque costume ideas. Key words: Dapper and flapper!
Step 4: Organize your refreshment whether it’s champagne, gin and juice, or just juice. Malden Center Fine Wines can help you with your cocktail & champagne needs. Remember, delivery is FREE within a 5-mile radius of their store (including Chelsea, Everett, Revere, Somerville, Medford, etc.)
Step 5: Zoom in with us on the evening of Thursday, March 31st! There will be prizes for solving the case, best costume, exciting and valuable raffles, and more!
We hope to see you there!
