Musical Comedy Murders of 1940" is not actually
a musical. But it is a first-rate murder mystery, told with a
delicious satirical twist and filled with suspense, intrigue,
and a surprise ending, of course! Pierrot Productions –
Theater to Go presents this ingenious whodunit at MCCC's
Kelsey Theatre on Fridays and Saturdays, Feb. 18 and 19, 25 and
26 at 8 p.m., and Sundays, Feb. 20 and 27 at 2 p.m. Kelsey Theatre
is located on Mercer’s West
Windsor Campus, 1200 Old Trenton Road.
When a theater
troupe is stranded by a snow storm at the home of a wealthy patron,
a series of strange and disturbing events begin to unfold: murders,
disappearances, and even odd hors d'oeuvres. “The Musical
Comedy Murders” is a wildly comic romp through a house full
of secret passages, a “stage door slasher" and a German
maid who seems to be four people.
the ensemble cast are: Jennifer Barron as Helsa, Jack Bathke as
O’Reilly, John Devennie as Kelly, Laura Beth Ettenger as
Nikki, Rupert Hinton as Ken, Luddy Iezzo as Eddie, Liz Moore as

Simancik as Marjorie. Ruth Markoe directs the show. Producer/designer
is Pete LaBriola.
