Current Production - Auditioning See Below
Murder mystery musical comedy
From the same writing team as Chicago and Cabaret, Curtains tells the tale of Jessica Cranshaw, a leading lady and a triple threat: she can’t sing, dance or remember her lines! To the relief of everyone, she is murdered during her opening night curtain call, leaving the whole cast and crew as suspects. Enter Lt. Frank Cioffi, a police detective and amateur musical performer, to solve the crime, save the show and maybe even get the girl in the process! Packed with glorious tunes and an hilarious script, Curtains is a fun-packed journey for both performers and audiences alike. Performances run from 16th-19th November 2022 at 7.45pm with a Saturday matinee at 2.30pm. Tickets will go on general release soon.
The show will be directed by David Phipps-Davis, with musical direction from Brian D Steel and choreography from Kerry Payne.
