This latest Parkland theater production, directed by Mathew Green, opens tonight at the Harold and Jean Miner Theatre. Here are the details from the press release:

When their latest Broadway musical closes after the murder of three chorus girls, the writers and stars escape to Westchester to work on their next hit. Unfortunately, the murderer has followed them upstate! A comedy about murders, secret identities, and the Golden Age of Broadway, The Musical Comedy Murders of 1940 is a modern classic in the vein of Clue and Murder by Death. 

Mathew Green directs a cast of campus, alumni, and community players including Karen Hughes, Chelsea Collier, Wesley Bennett, Jace Jamison, Monty Joyce, Mallory Sellers, Quinton Ohlsson, Jenny Gleason, Ed Pierce, Mindy Smith, and Parker Evans. Lighting Design by Stuart Wilson; Scenic Design, Molly Ilten-Fullan; Sound Design, Dominick Rosales, and Costume Design by Sheri Doyle.
