The Mystery of Edwin Drood

The Blue Hill Troupe, Ltd. presents

THE MYSTERY OF EDWIN DROOD
Book, Music, and Lyrics by Rupert Holmes

for the benefit of Rocking the Boat

Directed & choreographed by Gary Slavin
Music Direction by Matthew Stephens

Based on Charles Dickens’ final unfinished novel, this hilarious whodunit invites the audience to solve its mystery by choosing the identity of the murderer. The tale is presented as a show-within-a-show, as the Music Hall Royale – a delightfully loony Victorian theatre company – presents Dickens’ brooding mystery. Musical numbers include “Perfect Strangers,” “Don’t Quit While You’re Ahead,” “Off To The Races” and “Moonfall.” Fun for the whole family, and interactive – the audience will vote on important parts of the ending, so each performance is completely different from the others!
