Senior High School Musical: Curtains
The musical is a send-up of backstage murder mystery plots, set in Boston, Massachusetts in 1959, and follows the fallout when the supremely untalented star of Robbin' Hood of the Old West is murdered during her opening night curtain call. It is up to Lt. Frank Cioffi, a police detective who moonlights as a musical theater fan to save the show, solve the case, and maybe even find love before the show reopens, without getting killed himself.

$8/adult; $6/student & senior; $12 reserved seating

Thursday, February 12 and 19: 7:30 pm
Saturday, February 14 and 21: 8 pm
