Musical Comedy Murders of 1940

April 22, 2017, 7:30 pm-9:00 pm

The State Fair Community College Theatre Arts program will present the mystery/farce “Musical Comedy Murders of 1940” April 19-23 in the Stauffacher Theatre on the Sedalia campus.

This witty, spirited play, which enjoyed a long run on Broadway, pokes fun at the ridiculous aspects of Hollywood and corny thrillers. The creative team responsible for a recent Broadway flop, in which three chorus girls were murdered, gathers for a backer’s audition at an estate, replete with sliding panels, secret passageways and a German maid who is apparently four different people. As bodies start to drop, a blizzard prevents the survivors from escaping, but the mystery is eventually solved with the help of a snowshoed police inspector.

The performance is rated PG for mild violence.

Regular performances will be at 7:30 p.m. April 19-22; admission is $6. Tickets are $15 for an April 22 dinner theatre in the Stauffacher lobby; dinner begins at 6:30 p.m. The dinner theatre menu is available by calling the Box Office at (660) 596-7387 from noon to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.

SFCC students and employees receive free admission, and cost of the dinner theatre for them is $10. Special group rates are available for both regular performances and dinner theatre.

A matinée will be presented at 2 p.m. April 23. Anyone 60 or older will be admitted free.

Tickets may be purchased online at www.sfccmo.edu/campus-life/the-arts, by calling the Box Office or emailing tickets@sfccmo.edu. Wheelchair seating is available upon request.
