Will police Lt. Frank Cioffi solve the mystery of who killed the star of "Robbin Hood of the Old West" during her curtain call on opening night of tryouts in Boston?
Will Cioffi discover who is bumping off other members of the cast?
Will he find love in the process of solving the whodunnit?
The questions keep coming as Cocalico High School presents its 2014 spring musical, "Curtains," Friday through Sunday at the high school auditorium in Denver.
"Curtains" is a play-within-a-play, filled with music, mystery, comedy, romance and intrigue as the actors try to save the show without starring in the next day's obituaries.
Senior Ian Brady takes on the role of Cioffi and shares the spotlight with Hanna Weiss as Niki Harris, the understudy for the lead actress.
Maegan Weinhold is lyricist Georgia Hendricks, who takes over the leading role after the star's demise. The other half of the song-writing team is composer Aaron Fox, played by Patrick Pettus.
Will Hendricks and Fox, formerly married, rekindle their romance? Will they end up on the list of victims?
With Emily Gehman as producer Carmen Bernstein and Austin Trynoski as choreographer Bobby Pepper, the music and the mayhem doesn't stop.
The original production of Kander and Ebb's "Curtains" opened on Broadway in 2007, with David Hyde Pierce in the role of Frank Cioffi, and played for 15 months.
Cocalico's staging of "Curtains" is directed by Jere Kimmich. Kathy Robb is the musical director.
Kimmich was full of praise for the cast and crew.
"The students are a great bunch to work with," Kimmich said. "They've put in countless hours and dealt with the winter and its disruptions well. 'Curtains' is a fun show. Anyone who loves theater or murder mystery spoofs should see it."
"Actually," he said, "everyone should see it."
Performances will be held on Friday and Saturday, March 14 and 15, at 7 p.m., with a matinee performance on Sunday, March 16, at 2 p.m.
All tickets are $5 each. Tickets are available by emailing Christopher_Beiler@cocalico.org. Tickets are also available at the door for all performances.
