THE MUSICAL COMEDY MURDERS OF 1940
Written by John Bishop
Directed by Julia Tadlock
Sponsored by Twombly Wealth Management and Experienced Goods
The creative team responsible for a recent Broadway flop in which three chorus girls were murdered by the mysterious "Stage Door Slasher" assemble for a backer's audition at the estate of a wealthy angel. The house is replete with sliding panels, secret passageways, and a German maid who is apparently four different people -- all of which figure diabolically in the mayhem which follows when the infamous "Slasher" makes his reappearance and strikes again -- and again.
As the team prepare their performance, huddled inside from a paralyzing blizzard, bodies start to drop in plain sight, knives spring out of nowhere, masked figures drag their victims out of sight, and accusing fingers point in all directions. A slapstick, side-splitter with a generous serving of satiric and irreverent wit, this whodunit will have audiences laughing from start to finish!
Performances: October 6, 7, 8 & 13, 14, 15
Tickets: $13, $12 senior, $10 student

"What would you do if you had all eternity..."
Based on the beloved story by Natalie Babbitt, Tuck Everlasting asks what a life would mean if it never ended, and whether never-ending life would be worth living.
Eleven year-old Winnie Foster yearns for a life of adventure beyond her white picket fence in Treetop, NH -- but it's not until she becomes unexpectedly entwined with the Tuck Family that she gets more than she could have imagined. Learning of the magic behinds the Tucks' unending youth, she finds herself fighting to protect their secret of eternal life. As her adventure unfolds, Winnie faces an extraordinary choice: return to her life or continue with the Tucks on their infinite journey.
This magical production is the regional premier of this recent Broadway musical, and features a scoring score, stunning choreography and a gorgeous script.
Tickets: Adults $15, Seniors $13, and Students $13
