Boston, 1959

At the Colonial Theatre, the cast of "Robbin’ Hood" takes their bows on opening night. 

Just as the curtain falls, so does Jessica Cranshaw, the profoundly untalented leading lady of the production. 

Enter Lieutenant Frank Cioffi, a fast-talking cop with a love for musical theatre. 

He quarantines the cast and crew inside the theatre while he searches for clues. 

But Cioffi doesn’t just investigate the murder--he also offers advice and insight into improving "Robbin’ Hood." 

The musical will open again in 24 hours with a new leading lady, so the clock is ticking to find the killer and put on a killer show. 

Who could it be? 

Carmen Bernstein, the sassy and brassy producer? 

Christopher Belling, the campy and egotistical director? 

Georgia Hendricks, the lyricist who replaces Jessica onstage? 

Niki Harris, the ingenue with a secret? 

Everyone is a suspect, and only Cioffi can make sense of the evidence. 

"CURTAINS" is a musical-theatre parody of whodunnit classics, with numbers ranging from the classic musical theatre song-and-dance “A Tough Act to Follow” to the heartfelt “I Miss the Music.” 

A comedic send-up suitable for all ages, "CURTAINS" will have the audience laughing until the last curtain falls. 


THE WESTON FRIENDLY SOCIETY OF THE PERFORMING ARTA, INC. is the second oldest theatre group in the United States, and has a rich history of putting on quality musicals for enthusiastic audiences from all over the state. THE FRIENDLY SOCIETY originated as a forum for group readings of classic books, poetry and the Bible in a small theatre on the estate of Mr. Horace Sears. The organization eventually evolved into cabaret-style performances in the beloved Weston Town Hall, a tradition kept even today. Historically, SOCIETY membership was limited to only Weston residents connected with the First Parish Unitarian Church. Today membership is non-sectarian, and is open to all residents of metropolitan Boston and beyond.
