The Mystery of Edwin Drood - Century Winter Musical - February 22-25

Wednesday, Feb 22 - 12:00pm - Senior Citizen Matinee
Thursday, Feb 23 - 7:00pm
Friday, Feb 24 - 7:00pm
Saturday, February 25 - 2:00pm & 7:00pm
Tickets for this musical will be general admission and sold at the door the night/day of the showing $8.00.

The Mystery of Edwin Drood is a hilarious, interactive whodunit mystery musical that allows the audience to enter the action and become the ultimate detectives. In small town of Chesterham, England, the young and charming Edwin Drood has been mysteriously murdered. But by whom? His leering romantic rival, John Jasper? The infamous purveyor of opium and vice, Princess Puffer? The mysterious Landless twins, newly arrived from Ceylon? Or someone else even more dastardly and villainous? The show is based on Charles Dickens’ unfinished novel of the same name, and Dickens passed away before he was able to reveal the culprit. Rupert Holmes’ award-winning musical solves this predicament by asking the audience to choose which character is the killer by putting it to a vote. Staged in metatheatrical manner by the Music Hall Royale, a traveling Victorian theatre troupe full of just as many colorful characters as the roles they play, this charming and inventive musical is sure to intrigue and entertain any musical or mystery lover!
