November 16th and 17th are the last nights to see the Point Pleasant Boro High School fall production,“The Musical Comedy of Murders of 1940” at 7:30pm in the high school auditorium. Tickets are only $10 and are sold at the door or you can order tickets by calling 732-701-1900 ext. 2218 to reserve seating.

The play is a comedy about ten people in the “show biz” who come together to make a musical audition before realizing that there is a murderer among them. Each of the characters is unique enough to make the audience question whose backstory can really be trusted, as they look for clues as to which one of them is the real “Stage Door Killer”. The play is meant to keep the audience laughing their socks off, while still hanging on the edge of their seat, as the production and the mystery unfolds.

Performing arts teachers, Mrs. Muraglia and Mr. Kerns, have been working with the cast and crew of the play since the end of August non-stop to ensure that their performances for all four nights are the best that they can be. When asked to explain the play in three words or less, student producer Ben Stefan stated that the play is “suspenseful, thrilling” and of course as implied by the name, “hilarious”.

The next production that the performing arts department has planned for PPBHS is the spring musical “Newsies” and we hope to see you all support the arts!
