A murder has been committed at Possum Hall. It occurred during the curtain call of "Robbin’ Hood of the Old West." The leading lady collapsed and was taken to the hospital, where she later died. So begins Possum Point Players' newest musical "Curtains," running for six performances, April 19-28.
In the play, when leading lady Jessica Crenshaw, (Anne Maloney of Millsboro) mysteriously dies, the entire cast and crew are suspects. Enter a local detective, Lt. Frank Cioffi, (Don Megee of Georgetown) who just happens to be a musical theater fan. While the murder investigation progresses, so do rehearsals for "Robbin’ Hood of the Old West," with Georgia Hendricks (Leslie Boslet of Milford) in the leading lady role. Can the company pull together in time for a favorable review? Can Lt. Cioffi find the murderer...and fix the musical?
"Curtains," directed by Jim Hartzell of Georgetown with musical direction by Liz Messick of Laurel and choreography by Deni Robinson of Lewes, is being performed at 8 p.m., Friday and Saturday, April 19-20 and April 26-27 and at 2 p.m., Sunday, April 21 and April 28 at Possum Hall in Georgetown.
