This is the last week of Garfield High School’s spring musical, The Mystery of Edwin Drood. Over 100 kids are involved in this showy production set in an 1890’s English music hall.
In the play, the Victorian actors are putting on a production of Charles Dickens last work but Dickens dies before it is finished. In order to solve the mystery of Edwin Drood’s disappearance, student actors enlist the audience to vote on who is the murderer- thus the ending changes every night. Both the audience and Garfield students are having a good time interacting with each other in this entertaining show within a show.
The new backstage facilities at the Quincy Jones Performance Center have been put to good use in painting impressive sets and building beautiful costumes. The front of the house features a sunken orchestra pit with a 20 piece student orchestra, tiered seating, and brand new sound and lighting systems.
Performances 5/27-5/30 at 7pm Quincy Jones Performance Center at Garfield High School Tickets $10 General, $7 Seniors/Students
