This year's St. Mary's winter play is the Musical Comedy Murders of 1940, a comical take on a murder mystery.
According to Sabrina Spence (11), who plays the role of sergeant Michelle Kelly, the St. Mary’s theater department’s newest show the Musical Comedy Murders of 1940, “is basically exactly what it sounds like, a comedy featuring a whole lot of death.” The play is a murder mystery set in the mansion of Elsa Von Grossenknueten, played by Alison Hesselberg (11), which follows the investigation that takes place after the murder of maid Helsa Wenzel, or Grace Lee (11). Tickets are $10 each and the Buckman will host showings at 7:00 pm on Friday, February 24 and Saturday the 25, and there will be a matinee at 2:00 pm on Sunday the 26.
