This year's Sophomore class production is a delightful, madcap comedy about how complicated it can be to put on a play. The cast and crew attempting to stage the world premiere of a new play encounter something more than the usual miscues, misfunctions, lost props, and gossip that occur backstage. And on top of everything, they have to deal with murder! The suspects include...everybody. In the meantime, the show must go on! Laura Ahlquist directs this wonderful production - fun for the whole family!

Tickets are just $5 for evening shows and $3 for the Saturday matinee. All shows take place at the Chesterton Academy Theatre, located in the lower level of Calvary Church, 5300 France Ave. S., Edina, MN 55410. Click on the links above to purchase tickets or visit the store.
