This week the theatre kids at Plano Senior High School in Plano, TX (the Wildcats!), have a mystery to solve! Whodunit?? January 17-19, 2013, the Plano High Theatre Department will solve the mystery in fine musical style as they present CURTAINS, a valentine to old-school show business from Kander & Ebb and Rupert Holmes.
CURTAINS is a hilarious Broadway musical that is right at home with musical theatre programs in high schools and community theatres around the world. The show is loaded with delicious parts for all, so along with your leads, your fully-engaged ensemble has great featured bits throughout. CURTAINS pokes fun at the musical theatre mystery genre with a stellar score by Broadway legends Kander & Ebb and a downright side-splitting book by Rupert Holmes.
High school musical theatre departments that want to take their students to the next level are finding that CURTAINS is a newer show that has all the great tenants of the classic Broadway Musical. Here’s the scoop: CURTAINS is set in the brassy, bright, and promising year of 1959. Your cast is performing at Boston’s Colonial Theatre for the opening night performance of a new musical. When the leading lady mysteriously dies on stage the entire cast & crew are suspects. Enter a local detective, who just happens to be a musical theatre fan!
