October 4-6 and 11-13

The Musical Comedy Murders of 1940

WHEN: Friday & Saturday shows begin at 7pm and Sunday matinee at 3pm.

Doors open 30 minutes prior to performance.

COST: Tickets are for $15 general seating and $20 for reserved.

Students admitted for half price.

DETAILS: 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 non-stop 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!
