A Murder Mystery Masquerade Ball is scheduled for Halloween weekend in Hampton County.

When the judging eyes of the world are on your town, you can walk around and hang your head in shame — or you can make a community theater production about it.

Art is imitating life in rural Hampton County, home of disbarred South Carolina attorney Richard “Alex” Murdaugh, who currently stands accused of crimes ranging from murder and drug charges to embezzlement and fraud. In the shadow of this ongoing crime saga, Hampton County Arts have recently announced a Murder Mystery Masquerade Ball set for Saturday, Oct. 29, in the Stanley Arts Center, with a plot that might sound hauntingly familiar to many. 

While this arts event is based on a fictitious scenario in fictional “Frampton County,” it has striking similarities to real current events gripping Hampton County and the SC Lowcountry. Here is a teaser from the Hampton County Arts Facebook page:
