Kirriemuir Amateur Operatic Society presents The Mystery of Edwin Drood, a solve-it-yourself musical. Who dunnit? You decide.
This hilarious musical whodunit was a smash hit on Broadway where it received rave reviews. Loosely based on Charles Dickens’ famous unfinished novel, it takes audience participation to new heights by letting them directly effect the play’s outcome by voting for whomever they think murdered the unfortunate young Edwin Drood.
Presented as a ‘first night performance by The Music Hall Royale’, a troupe of decidedly hammy Victorian actors, this affectionate recreation of a bygone theatrical age is certain to prove an enormous hit with everyone. The witty and tuneful score contains such numbers as “There You Are”, “Moonfall”, Perfect Strangers” and “Off To The Races”
Winner of five Tony Awards including Best Musical.
