Something's Afoot
Book, music, & lyrics by James McDonald, David Vos, & Robert Gerlach
Additional music by Ed Linderman
Directed by Dr. John Crawford
February 2002

This is a zany, entertaining show that takes a strong satirical poke at Agatha Christie mysteries and musical styles of past years. Ten people are stranded in an isolated English country house during a raging thunderstorm. One by one they're picked off by cleverly fiendish devices. As the bodies pile up in the library, the survivors frantically race to discover the identity and motivation of the cunning culprit.

From the New York Times: "The audience adored the show."

From the Daily News: "Wacky, satirical, good-natured nonsense. Enormous gaiety."

Produced by special arrangement with Samuel French.

This was our first musical production.
