There’s a murder to be solved, but it’s not what you might think. This month’s Mouse River Players performance is The “Musical Comedy Murders of 1940.”
It follows a production team as they try to put together a new play. However, their creative efforts have been slowed down by the stage door slasher murdering their chorus girls. The play is filled with witty jokes, secret passageways, and mistaken identities. Castmember, Evelyn Donovan, says she’s performed in many shows over the years, but this experience has been one of her favorites.
“Most people don’t really understand straight plays. They think that it’s going to be stuffy because there’s no music and stuff, and there are some tunes but -I will tell you this- it is fast-paced, exciting, and I laughed harder than I have at any current television show,” says Evelyn Donovan, Performing as Majorie Baverstock.
You can catch Donovan and the other actors at Mouse River Players in Downtown Minot, Saturday, March 9, at 7:30, Sunday, March 10, at 2:00. Then again on Friday and Saturday, March 15 and 16 at 7:30 and Sunday, March 17 at 2:00.
