In phase 2, most, if not all entertainment venues are still closed. So our local theatre company, Sight Lines Entertainment, came out with a new form of live theatre experience. Set to stage over the popular video-conferencing platform, Zoom, the interactive live performance of murder-mystery, Murder at Mandai Camp will run for three nights, 26 June to 28 June at 10pm.
So how does this live interactive performance work, you may ask. As part of the audience, you will play the role of the lead detective. You are tasked with uncovering the identity of the suspect through real-time chat windows and messages that you will receive through telegram. At the end of the performance, you and your fellow detectives will cast a collective vote to identify the murderer.
Murder at Mandai is based off army myths that NS men might be familiar with. The story revolves around the murder of a young recruit whose mutilated corpse is found after an outfield exercise at Mandai Camp. You will feel like you are part of the performance as the detective.
Do note that the show does have some more than PG details, so only those 18 and above would be able to watch it. Once you’ve made payment you will receive a Zoom link to enter the live performance 2 hours before the show starts. And if you need something extra to go with the performance, you can pair it with cocktails from Laut. You can choose between 2 of the specially handpicked cocktails (250ml each), priced at $38, inclusive of delivery. Get your tickets here.
Date: 26 June to 28 June
Price: $15, $20, $30, $50 (Pay as you wish)
Alternatively, there is going to be a 14-days virtual Yoga Festival with local and international yoga professionals.
