Murder Mystery Dinner Theater

StageCoach Theatre Company Presents:

THE HAMILTON MURDERS

Written & Directed by Terry Smith
Produced by Jerri Wiseman

Solve the murder while you feast on a fantastic dinner!

July 11, 1804: Alexander Hamilton lies dying on the ground. Aaron Burr stands nearby, a smoking pistol in his hand. Meanwhile, Hamilton’s wife sits at home with a room full of federalists awaiting his return. We have learned that history is written by those who want us to believe what they want us to believe, not necessarily the truth. The Hamilton Murders suggests the possibility that history got it wrong – again. We explore six possible conspiracies, based upon historical facts, that surrounded Alexander Hamilton at the time of his death. We will present these theories in true entertainment form and allow you to decide which one you believe is right. In so doing, you will answer the question “Who paid Aaron Burr to shoot Alexander Hamilton?”

Doors & Bar open at 4:30PM
Show starts at 5:30PM
Dinner Break at 6PM
Show resumes at 6:45PM

Music Theatre: Young Frankenstein

Shenandoah Summer Music Theatre presents: Young Frankenstein

Grandson of the infamous Victor Frankenstein, Frederick Frankenstein (pronounced “Fronk-en-steen”) inherits his family’s estate in Transylvania. With the help of a hunchbacked sidekick, Igor (pronounced “Eye-gore”), and a leggy lab assistant, Inga (pronounced normally), Frederick finds himself in the mad scientist shoes of his ancestors. “It’s alive!” he exclaims as he brings to life a creature to rival his grandfather’s. Eventually, of course, the monster escapes and hilarity continuously abounds.

Music and Lyrics by Mel Brooks
Book by Mel Brooks and Thomas Meehan

Così fan tutte

Set on Shenandoah Conservatory’s main proscenium stage and directed each year by a different distinguished guest artist, Main Stage Opera provides audiences with the full opera experience! The classic romantic comedy Così fan tutte follows two sisters whose devotion to their beloved fiancés is cynically put to the test by their own lovers with help from the conniving Alfonso and mischievous Despina. Mozart’s radiant score, performed by the Shenandoah Conservatory Symphony Orchestra, is cleverly juxtaposed with one of the most bittersweet stories of deceit, fidelity and love.

Sung in Italian with English titles.

Duration: Approximately 170 minutes*
