ABOUT "THE 39 STEPS"
Mix a Hitchcock masterpiece with a juicy spy novel, add a dash of Monty Python and you have the intriguing, thrilling, riotous and unmissable comedy "THE 39 STEPS."
"THE 39 STEPS" hurtles a notorious fugitive and a spellbound blonde from a London music hall north by northwest to Scotland’s most remote highlands.
Will they save Britain from a den of devious spies?
A cast of four actors plays over 150 characters in this fast-paced tale of an ordinary man on an extraordinarily entertaining adventure.
"THE 39 STEPS" contains every single legendary scene from the award-winning movie — including the chase on the Flying Scotsman, the escape on the Forth Bridge, the first theatrical bi-plane crash ever staged and the sensational death-defying finale in the London Palladium.
"THE MYSTERY OF EDWIN DROOD"
Written by Rupert Holmes
April 12, 2024 through April 21, 2024

ABOUT "THE MYSTERY OF EDWIN DROOD"
"THE MYSTERY OF EDWIN DROOD" is a hilarious, interactive whodunit mystery musical that allows the audience to enter the action and become the ultimate detectives.
The show is based on Charles Dickens’ unfinished novel of the same name.
In small town of Chesterham, England, the young and charming Edwin Drood has been mysteriously murdered.
But by whom?
His leering romantic rival, John Jasper?
The infamous purveyor of opium and vice, Princess Puffer?
The mysterious Landless twins, newly arrived from Ceylon?
Or someone else even more dastardly and villainous?
Dickens passed away before he was able to reveal the culprit.
Rupert Holmes’ award-winning musical solves this predicament by asking the audience to choose which character is the killer by putting it to a vote.
Staged in metatheatrical manner by the Music Hall Royale, a traveling Victorian theatre troupe full of just as many colorful characters as the roles they play, this charming and inventive musical is sure to intrigue and entertain any musical or mystery lover.
All actors play two parts. Each plays an actor of the Music Hall Royale and also the character he or she plays in Music Hall’s production of "THE MYSTERY OF EDWIN DROOD".

ABOUT WILBRAHAM UNITED PLAYERS
Since 1956, WILBRAHAM UNITED PLAYERS (WUP) have been entertaining audiences of all ages with memorable musicals, comedies, and dramas. Based in Wilbraham, this non-profit group brings together people of all generations, cultures and tastes from throughout the Pioneer Valley, people who share a common bond: the love of a good show. The group’s original focus was primarily Gilbert and Sullivan, performing an operetta every other year through 1984. In recent years, WUP’s repertoire has expanded to include such hits as "CHICAGO," "STEEL MAGNOLIAS" and "GUYS AND DOLLS." In 2006 WUP celebrated its 50th Anniversary with a new production of “The Mikado." In our 2016 season – for our 60th anniversary- we returned to our Gilbert and Sullivan roots with a rousing production of "THE PIRATES OF PENZANCE!" Every season we strive to bring our audiences the best of local theatre in well-loved favorites or new shows. We offered the New England premiere of "THE GREAT GATSBY" in 2012 and in 2014 presented the Western Mass premiere of "THE LIGHT IN THE PIAZZA."
