Grand Theatre Presents Musical Comedy 'Curtains!'



The Grand Theatre, sponsored by Salt Lake Community College, is proud to present the Tony Award Winning musical, Curtains! Running October 3 – 26, 2019.

A musical comedy, murder mystery, by the creators of Cabaret and Chicago, 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. 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 hilarious show that is brilliantly written, it’s been one of my favorites for years.  With so many funny characters, our cast is having a blast playing all the different stereotypical, over the top theatre personalities in the show,” said Artistic and Executive Director of the Grand Theatre, Seth Miller. “It’s also full of huge dance numbers that The Grand’s audience loves.  October is a great time of year for a murder mystery, and it’s even better when the show is also a musical comedy.”

Curtains is directed by David Hanson, with music direction by Michael Leavitt. Performances will take place Wednesday-Saturday at 7:30pm with Saturday matinees at 2pm. Tickets range from $17 - $23 and can be purchased at 801-957-3322 or www.GrandTheatreCompany.com. As always, junior high and high school students receive 1 free ticket with their school ID.

Curtains is rated PG-13 for adult themes and strong language.
