The Musical Comedy of 1940
Join the AMPA Theater Department for a night of enormous fun and side splitting good time! The witty play, The Musical Comedy Murders of 1940 takes place in a mansion where slowly a group of “show people” start to discover that there is a “Stage Door Slasher” in their mist. The convoluted murder mystery plot has twists upon twists util you have to give way to a night of laughter. The show is combination of the Broadway hit, Noises Off, mixed in with an old fashioned Agatha Christie play and will be fun night for the entire family (especially grandparents!) ages 10 and older.
