Curtains

29th November 2017
The event will be held in Palace Theatre, 430 London Road, Westcliff-on-Sea, SS0 9LA, and is Various to attend.

Curtains unfolds backstage at Boston’s Colonial Theatre, where a new musical could be a smash, were it not for its talent free leading lady!

When the hapless star dies during the opening night curtain call, Lieutenant Frank Cioffi is despatched to conduct a thorough investigation, however the lure of the theatre proves irresistible and after an unexpected romance blossoms for the stage struck detective he finds himself just as much drawn to making the show a hit, as he is to solving the murder! 

Curtains is an original musical comedy with a book by Rupert Holmes [The Mystery of Edwin Drood, Say Goodnight Gracie] and a score and lyrics by John Kander and Fred Ebb [Cabaret, Chicago, The Kiss of the Spider Woman] It has been a huge hit stateside and is an exciting new show for UK
audiences.

The Players Theatre Company are delighted to be amongst the first to bring the show here, and are no stranger to the Palace Theatre having previously presented a number of shows including White Christmas, Acorn Antiques - The Musical, The Vicar of Dibley and more recently Stepping Out-
The Play.

Join us for this wonderfully comic, musical murder-mystery and find out if Lt Cioffi can save the day, or if it really is, ‘Curtains’ for the show!
