On March 17, 19th and 20th, the SSLI Drama Club is proud to present
CURTAINS - The Whodunit Musical Comedy
Book by RUPERT HOLMES, Music by JOHN KANDER, Lyrics by FRED EBB
Directed by Joan Freeman Cohen
All performances will take place at the Long Island Children's Museum 11 Davis Ave, Garden City, NY
The musical is a send-up of backstage murder mystery plots. Set in 1959 Boston, Massachusetts , a company of actors is trying out a Broadway bound show when the supremely untalented star 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.
The Review are in... Curtains - A Smash Hit!
For three sold out nights in March, the HS Drama Club presented the acclaimed murder mystery musical whodunnit Curtains to enthusiastic audiences at the Long Island Children's Museum. Over 28 students participated in the production both in front of and behind the stage and all had an exhausting yet exhilarating experience. A large team of parents assisted in a wide variety of ways including costumes, props construction, feeding of the cast and crew and backstage help during rehearsals and the show itself. It was a true example of community theater at its best. Kudos to director Joan Cohen and her fine company of actors and production staff for another outstanding drama club musical. This marked fourteen years of shows at the Long Island Children's Museum. Carry on, drama club!
