Fountain Hills Theater is proud to announce the opening of its new musical comedy “Curtains.”
It’s the brassy, bright, and promising year of 1959. Boston’s Colonial Theatre is host to the opening night performance of a new musical version of “Robin Hood.” When the leading lady mysteriously dies on stage the entire cast and crew are suspects. Enter a local detective, who just happens to be a musical theatre fan!
“Curtains” is a play within a play, as well as a “whodunit” new musical comedy featuring one of the last scores by Tony Award-winning songwriters John Kander and Fred Ebb. “Curtains” was nominated for nine Tony Awards, winning for its star, David Hyde Pierce.
“Curtains” is produced by Patty Torrilhon and Patricia Tonzi and directed by Peter J. Hill. The show is choreographed by Noel Irick and musically directed by Jennifer Whiting.
