Cotter’s fall musical ‘Curtains’, under the direction of Mr. Mark Roeckers, will be performed at the St. Cecilia theater on Friday, November 9, and Saturday, November 10, at 7:00, and Sunday, November 11 at 3:00.

‘Curtains’ is a murder mystery with a show-within-a-show based in Boston, Massachusetts in 1959. On the opening night of the ‘show’ Jessica Cranshaw, played by Vivienne Warner, is murdered. During ‘Curtains’, others are killed, and they need to find out what is happening if they want to save their show Lt. Frank Cioffi’s, played by Hunter Ramsden, job is to find the culprit, and try not to get himself killed in the process. This murder mystery has many twists and turns that should keep the audience on the edge of their seats.

Hope Howard, a senior who plays one of the leads, Georgia Hendricks, said “I think the play has really come a long way. Some were kind of scared that not everyone would remember their lines, but we had a practice that ran from 3:30-9, and it was very helpful, overall. I think it will be a great play.”

Almost 50 Cotter students are involved in the musical this year, ranging from the main characters, chorus, pit members, and the backstage crew.
