Upcoming Events & Classes
The Musical Comedy Murders of 1940 
by John Bishop

When: Friday, May 27 at 7:30 pm - Q &A afterwards with with the actors!
           Saturday, May 28 at 1:30 pm - Cookies and coffee at intermission!                       Saturday, May 28 at 7:30 pm - Last night!
Where: Te Paske Theatre in Sioux Center
Who: Recommended for ages 8+
What: The Musical Comedy Murders of 1940 is described by the New York Times as “an ingenious and wildly comic romp which enjoyed a long and critically hailed run both on and Off-Broadway. Poking antic fun at the more ridiculous aspects of "show biz" and the corny thrillers of Hollywood's heyday, the play is a non-stop barrage of laughter as those assembled (or at least those who aren't killed off) untangle the mystery of the ‘Stage Door Slasher.’”

Tickets will be available for sale beginning May 9 at the City office. Tickets will be $8 in advance and $10 at the door. Recommended for ages 8+.

Musical Comedy Murders of the 1940's will be directed Teresa Ter Haar, a Theatre Professor at Dordt College, and will be Technically Directed by Laura Berkompas, who works at Dordt as the Technical Director. The Set Designer will be Jonathan Sabo, a Theatre Professor at Northwestern University.

The cast includes: Sandy Reitsma, Missy Mulder, Jeremy Koerselman, Josiah Wallace, Kory Plockmeyer, Kelsey Reitsma, Ben Kuiper, Heather Bogenrief, Mark Verbruggen, and Katie Nice
