Rising Star Project is a one-of-a-kind program that supports student access to a professional theater process. This year, students will work with mentors through shadowing opportunities and approximately 200 hours of rehearsal time to bring you their version of Something’s Afoot after the professional cast version closes on 3/24. Teens will perform on stage and in the orchestra pit, produce, direct, and work behind the scenes in technical theater and arts administrative tracks in this unique educational experience.
Prepare to laugh until it hurts with this musical spoof of the whodunit genre. Poking fun at the likes of Agatha Christie murder mysteries, in Something’s Afoot, 10 people are stranded in an isolated country estate during a raging thunderstorm and are picked off, one by one, with cleverly fiendish devices. As bodies pile up, the survivors frantically race to solve the mystery. Join in the tomfoolery of this farcical, raucous, and outrageous show. Book, music, and lyrics by James McDonald, David Voss, and Robert Gerlach; additional music by Ed Linderman.
