Mystery of Edwin Drood opens Friday at SCC

Wednesday, May 11, 2016

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.

The show is based on Charles Dickens’ unfinished novel of the same name.

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?

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 Shoreline Community College Musical theater department, we have crafted a cast full of colorful characters while reflecting the modern world we live in today--Steampunk elements and gender bent roles. This charming and inventive musical is sure to intrigue and entertain any musical or mystery lover.

All actors play two parts. Each plays an actor of the Music Hall Royale and also the character he or she plays in their production of The Mystery of Edwin Drood.

Adapted from: The Mystery of Edwin Drood by Charles Dickens. Playwright and Lyricist: Rupert Holmes. Directed by Gregory Award winning director and Sound Theatre Company Artistic Director Teresa Thuman. Producer and Music Director: Dr. Charles Enlow. Choreography by Lee Ann Hittenberger
