(The following press release was submitted by Wentzville School District.)
The cast and crew of Timberland Theatre will present Murder at Crooked House, Book by Tim Kelly Music and Lyrics by Bill Francoeur on Oct. 11-13.
This parody of a classic murder mystery is one of the funniest musicals to come to Timberland High School. It has all of the suspense of a murder mystery and all the comedy of a classic sit-com.
The action takes place at the home of Rebecca Fitzwilliam, played by Kaci Manley. The famous Hoboken detective Hercules Porridge, played by Zack Broeker, attempts to solve the mysterious crimes that occur at Crooked House with no help from Detective Bobby (Ian Fitzpatrick) and Policewoman Mulligan (Lauren Cole).
The blackmail, suspense, and twists will keep you on the edge of your seats while the laughs will have you rolling in the aisles! Additional cast include:
Shirley - Brooke Spires
Fay - Phoebe Holtsclaw
Anguish - Tyler Hall
Mark - Adam Loehr
Penny - Madi Bell
