Don't let the title fool you. The Musical Comedy Murders of 1940 is not a musical but an ingenious and wildly comic romp play. Poking antic fun at the more ridiculous aspects of "show biz" and the corny thrillers of Hollywood's heyday, the play is a nonstop barrage of laughter as those assembled (or at least those who aren't killed off) untangle the mystery of the "Stage Door Slasher." Join us for a night that's sure to be a lot of fun!

Friday & Saturday shows begin at 7 p.m. and Sunday matinee at 3 p.m. Doors open 30 minutes before each performance.

Tickets are $15 for general seating and $20 for reserved seats. Students admitted for half price.
