May 5 @ 7:30 pm
Bluffton University will present “Curtains,” the musical comedy whodunit, for the May Day musical. “Curtains” unfolds backstage at Boston’s Colonial Theatre, where the new musical could be a Broadway smash, were it not for the presence of its talent-free leading lady. When the hapless star dies on opening night during her curtain call, Lt. Frank Cioffi arrives on the scene to conduct the investigation. But the lure of the theatre proves irresistible and after an unexpected romance blooms for the stage-struck detective, he finds himself just as drawn to making the show a hit as he is in solving the murder. Dr. Melissa Friesen, a professor and chair of communication and theatre at Bluffton, will direct the show and Dr. Crystal Sellers Battle, an associate professor of music, is musical director.
