Rehearsals have been underway for “The Mystery of Edwin Drood” for several weeks as the cast learns lines, blocking and songs for this unique musical mystery. The cast has to learn eight different solutions to the crime as each night the audience chooses the murderer by vote. This interaction between audience and actors creates a unique relationship and energy that stretches the limits of live theatre. Make your plans to see this music hall mystery. Let the cast of the “Music Hall Royale” mystify, delight and engage you in this energetic whodunnit. Performance dates are May 14 – 23 and reservations can be made starting May 10 between 1 – 6 PM.

Inspired by Charles Dickens’ incomplete novel, Rupert Holmes’ spirited musical extravaganza stops the action midway through Act II (where Dickens had died) to invite the audience to vote on the outcome. Who DID kill Edwin Drood? We are proud to present this hilarious, chaotic entertainment, filled with melodrama, high spirits and rousing music hall melodies.

“Rupert Holmes’ achievement in his musical adaptation of Dickens’ ‘The Mystery of Edwin Drood’ is a little short of astonishing …”
