Star Staff Reports
Playhouse 51, Millington’s Community theatre will be Hosting performances of Rehearsal for Murder. The play was adapted by D.D. Brooks, and written by Richard Levinson and William Link, two of TV’s most successful mystery writers, the creators of Mannix, Columbo, and most notably, Murder, She Wrote.
A play within a play within a play; on opening night on Broadway, the playwright’s engagement to the leading actress is announced in the tabloids. The director, producer, the lead’s understudy, and leading actor relive the opening night that gets horrible reviews. The star actress commits suicide…. one year later; all the players are back together with a few additions to “read” a new script. Things get heated and we learn what actually happened.
Playhouse 51 has been Millington’s Community Theater since 2003, putting on four high quality productions a season, specializing in comedies, musicals, children’s shows, and educational outreach.
