Nov 01, 2012

The Newman University Music and Theatre Departments will present “Something’s Afoot,” the first play of the 2012-13 academic year, at 8 p.m. Nov. 8-10, and at 2 p.m. on Nov. 11. Each event will be located in the Performance Hall inside the De Mattias Fine Arts Center on the Newman University campus.

This murder mystery musical was on Broadway in the late 1970s and ran for 61 shows. Shortly after the play ended, it was nominated for an Olivier Award for Best Musical of the Year.

“The play is a witty, funny musical about the murder mystery genre complete with its own complex mystery. The characters are fun and it is filled with surprises and catchy tunes,” said Director of Theatre Mark Mannette.

Admission is $10 general admission, $8 seniors, Newman faculty and staff, $5 students, and free for Newman University students with ID. For more information visit the Newman University online campus calendar.
