THE MUSICAL COMEDY MURDERS OF 1940 Runs Feb. 13-23

BCT_The Musical Comedy Murders of 1940 logoTHE MUSICAL COMEDY MURDERS OF 1940
Brookville Community Theatre
Feb. 13-23
[Brookville]

Directed by Debbi Robbins

Cast: Jessica Booth as Helsa Wenzel, Kate Gaston as Elsa Von Grossenknueten, Brandon Brigeman as Michael Kelly, Jonathon Thomas as Patrick O’Reily, James Nelson as Ken De La Maize, Megan Renney as Nikki Crandall, Stephen Kallenberg as Eddie McCuen, Lori Alejandro as Marjorie Baverstock, Alain Alejandro as Roger Hopewell & Sheryl Koontz as Bernice Roth

The team responsible for a recent Broadway flop (in which three chorus girls were murdered by the mysterious “Stage Door Slasher”) assemble for an audition of their new show at the Westchester estate. The house is replete with sliding panels, secret passageways and a German maid; all of which figure diabolically in the comic mayhem which follows when the infamous “Slasher” makes his reappearance and strikes again—and again. When a blizzard cuts off any possible retreat, bodies start dropping, fingers start pointing, and police start bumbling.

Auditions Announced for A GIFT TO REMEMBER at Brookville Community Theatre

BVCT_logoThe Brookville Community Theatre will be holding auditions for the Christmas drama A GIFT TO REMEMBER adapted by Joseph Robinette and directed by Sherron Henry on Tuesday September 24th and Wednesday September 25th at 7pm.

Come prepared for cold readings from the script, and please bring your conflicts for the months of October and November. The director is looking for 6 males, 8 females and 1 girl, aged 7-10. The show runs November 14th-24th.

On Christmas Eve, during a snowstorm, a group of strangers are on a train to Boston from Bangor, Maine, where the airport had been shut down due to the weather. Once they reach Boston, many of the passengers hope to make connections to various destinations across the United States. A sailor is trying to get to Texas to place an engagement ring on his girlfriend’s finger. A software salesman, returning from a business trip, wants to return to Los Angeles and patch things up with his wife. A recently widowed woman wishes to spend the holidays with her daughter’s family in Boston. A man and his wife are attempting to reach Maryland in time for the birth of their first grandchild. And other travelers have similar desires to reach their destinations in time for Christmas. However, the train develops engine trouble, and there are track problems ahead. The passengers are suddenly forced to disembark and take shelter in a small depot in New Hampshire. Understandably disappointed and dispirited, they try to make the best of things with little success at first. Eventually, however, they begin to bond, despite their circumstances. They even find themselves beginning to accept their fate by finding ways to celebrate the true spirit of Christmas. As the former strangers become collective friends, through patience, understanding and humor, they realize the memory of this night will be a gift to remember.
