SSDT Presents “The Musical Comedy Murders of 1940”
Harding University’s Searcy Summer Dinner Theatre is continuing its season of “Mayhem & Mirth” with the production of “The Musical Comedy Murders of 1940,” a mix-up and mystery comical whodunit that will keep you guessing all night long. Set in a mansion with secret doors and passageways, the plot centers on auditions for a Broadway musical that became infamous when three dancers in the show were murdered by a killer dubbed “the Stage Door Slasher.” As the team rehearses, a snowstorm rages, phone lines are cut and the electricity goes out.
The show will run July 7-10 and 14-16 in the Ulrey Performing Arts Center. A buffet dinner provided by Chartwells Catering will be served at 6:30 p.m., and the show will begin at 7:30 p.m. Show casts feature members of the Searcy community and University faculty, staff and students.
