Westminster Schools Present Evening of Theatre
September 12, 2018 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm| $15 – $20
A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder is the knock-’em-dead, uproarious hit and the most-nominated show of the 2014 season. With ten Tony nominations and four wins, including Best Musical, Book, Direction and Costumes, it also earned seven Drama Desk Awards (including Best Musical), four Outer Critics Circle Awards (including Best Musical) and one Drama League Award (Best Musical).
When the low-born Monty Navarro finds out that he’s eighth in line for an earldom in the lofty D’Ysquith family, he figures his chances of outliving his predecessors are slight and sets off down a far more ghoulish path. Can he knock off his unsuspecting relatives without being caught and become the ninth Earl of Highhurst? And what of love? Because murder isn’t the only thing on Monty’s mind….
A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder is a murderous romp filled with unforgettable music, non-stop laughs and a scene-stealing role for one actor playing all eight of the doomed heirs who meet their ends in the most creative and side-splitting ways. This is a must-produce for any theatre looking for a truly original and fresh new comedy that will delight audiences and leave them begging for more.
High School Musi-pocalypse
When hunky star basketball player Cory and gorgeous smart girl Alejandra are chosen to star in Miss Farkus’ winter musical, their story seems suspiciously similar to a certain popular film…and one lawyer won’t stand for it. But a potential lawsuit is the least of the cast’s problems: money is running out, and the depressing script doesn’t seem likely to generate sales. Luckily, an Ancient Mayan exchange student has written a blockbuster musical disaster — and it’s guaranteed to be the most volcanic, destructive, and lucrative musical any high school has ever seen.
