Murder at the Nesmith House
It's stood for more than a century-and-a-half, but this October, the college's historic John Nesmith House on Andover Street in Lowell will play host to its first ever murder mystery - this one, thankfully, staged by the stars of MCC's Theater Club!
The Middlesex Community College Foundation is hosting a new type of fund-raiser to support student scholarships, featuring actors from our drama classes, under the direction of Karen Oster, the chair of our Performing Arts department! All proceeds from the fund-raiser will benefit a newly-established MCC Performing Arts Scholarship Fund!
The show will be performed two nights - Friday October 28 and Saturday, October 29. Both performances run from 6:30 p.m. to 9 p.m.
The performance is based on the original production "Slaughterhouse," by Norman Robbins. In the story, Romney Marsh, former king of the stage, invites a select group from his latest production to his manor. However, someone is harboring a dark secret that threatens the lives of all the guests. When the weekend takes a dark turn, the party begins to feel more like the plot from one of his horror plays. Will they be able to solve the mystery before it is too late?
Attendees of the event will watch as our students play out their roles throughout the first floor of the Nesmith House!
Tickets for the event are $75, and can be ordered online at www.middlesex.mass.edu/mystery
Hors d'oeuvres will be served. There will also be a cash bar.
Take a quick look at some quick thumbnails from dress rehearsal productions. Our students are the best!
Performances are limited to 60 people for each of the show's two nights. We hope you can join us for either the Friday night or Saturday night performance! We hear it's a killer play!
