Mehlville High School and Oakville High School are wrapping up their fall plays this week with final performances Thursday and Friday.
Mehlville students are performing The Musical Comedy Murders of 1940, where a group of theater hopefuls are invited to the Von Grossenknueten estate to audition for a new Broadway show, but only after the group has been snowed in do they realize—They were all in the show where the Broadway Slasher killed members of the company! Will the Broadway Slasher continue the killing spree?
The Musical Comedy Murders of 1940 will be performed at 7:00 pm on November 15, and 16th in the Mehlville Drama Center. Tickets are $5 in advance, $7 at the door, or $10 reserved.
Jill Jones, whose niece is the stage manager for the play, said the show is outstanding.
"I loved it!" she commented on Patch. "It was a mystery and comedy. Best money I spent in a long time for great entertainment....:)"

Oakville students have their own murder mystery in store. The school is performing Agatha Christie's The Mousetrap about a couple who opens an inn together only to have all their guests snowed in...and murdered!
Performances are at 7 p.m. on November 15 and 16 in the Oakville Drama Center.
