MURDER FOR TWO

Sponsored by M&T Bank, Asbury Pointe, The Buffalo News and Daemen College

July 11 — August 12, 2018

Part of the 2017-2018 Season

An irreverent theatrical riff on the classic whodunnit, everyone is a suspect in MURDER FOR TWO, a hilarious new murder mystery musical with a twist: one actor investigates the crime, the other plays all of the suspects, and they BOTH play the PIANO! A zany blend of classic musical comedy and madcap mystery, MURDER FOR TWO is a highly theatrical duet loaded with killer laughs.

The running time of the production is approximately 2 hours, including intermission.

MusicalFare continues its 6th successive summer of Musical Theatre Workshops with a first:  a production of FAME JR. on the MusicalFare stage!  In addition to audition, hair/make-up, stage combat, cabaret performance and resume creation workshops, students will receive instruction in acting, dancing, and singing while also performing in FAME JR. on the MusicalFare stage!

This camp is for high school students only, between the ages of 13-18.  Enrollment is limited to 25 students.  Enrolled students receive a free ticket to MusicalFare’s MURDER FOR TWO on August 9th and the opportunity to perform in the Premier Cabaret afterward.
