Munster Theatre Company
Munster High School is pleased to present its first production of the
season, the mystery The Spiral Staircase. Produced by Larry A
Brechner and Assistant Produced Carol
Lynn Brechner, this full-length, student directed production will
feature the solo directing debut of Munster High School senior Ashley Troumouliaris, assisted by Erica Ranade. The
Novice production features the talents of Freshman and Sophomore actors
(or Juniors or Seniors who have never been on stage before).
As thunder and rain echo outside, the town Constable (Pat Thomas) arrives at the isolated Warren household to report another
murder that has shocked and terrified the village. The victims have
always been young girls—and all with a noticeable defect or
imperfection of some kind. Because of this there is fear for the safety
of Helen (Kim Dooley), companion of the bedridden Mrs. Warren (Stephanie
Dybel), who has been unable to speak since undergoing the shock of
witnessing her parents' horrible death some years before.
telephone wires have been downed by the storm; the Constable has stopped
by in person to check on Helen's whereabouts—but neither Mrs. Oates (Katie
Taylor), the nurse (Jen Dubish), Stephen Rice (Matt
Kasenga), nor Professor Warren (Roddy Oancea), scholarly
stepson of Mrs. Warren, has seen or heard from her since she went into
the village earlier in the day. Their fears are allayed, however, when
Helen, in the company of young Dr. Parry (Ryan Blanchard), is
brought safely home. But the threat of danger still exists, for the
murderer remains at large and his cleverness has denied the police any
solid clues as to his identity.
One by one, however, Helen’s protectors leave—or seem to—and as her isolation grows, so do the threat of the killer's visit—leading to a thrilling climax.
The Spiral Staircase will run Wednesday and Thursday, September 24 & 25 at 7pm in the Munster Auditorium. Tickets are $4 at the door and are available at the Auditorium Box Office on performance nights or by calling: (219) 836-3200 x245 or my email MunAud Box Office.

is the sequel to the first musical based on Charles Schulz's comic
strip “Peanuts” gang, You’re A Good Man Charlie Brown (which
just enjoyed a recent revival on Broadway). Snoopy!!! was
revived in 1987 in London adding five new songs that will appear in this
production. This is a musical
for children of all ages.
The cast features
Peanuts favorites the lovable loser Charlie Brown (Martin Blumberg),
his naïve little sister Sally (Carolyn Jania); the fussy
powerhouse Lucy (Erica Ranade), her security blanket-toting little
brother Linus (Mike Konopasek),
academically-challenged tomboy Peppermint Patty (Lindsey
Ellingsen); Snoopy’s little fluttering bird friend Woodstock (Kim
Dooley); and of course that lovable beagle Snoopy (Ashley
Troumouliaris); with a whole host of other Peanuts favorites in the
Snoopy!!!, is presented through a series of effervescent vignettes, songs and dances, which involves the audience in the entertaining world of these five-year-olds and their furry friend. The heart-felt and memorable songs include: “Hurry Up Face”, “Edgar Allen Poe”, “I Know Now”, “Clouds”, “Poor Sweet Baby”,” Where Did that Little Dog Go?” and many more. The gang's energy and optimism is quickly transferred to each audience with the rousing number Don't Be Anything Less Than Everything You Can Be, which will surely encourage each of us with its advice: "don't be a feather/ be a bird and fly." When Woodstock enters the scene to give Snoopy a letter, we find that our favorite pet has been named Head Beagle, an honor that Snoopy is proud to accept. With the beautiful ballad, “Just One Person”, the entire Peanuts gang thoughtfully concludes the show.
SNOOPY!!! will run Thursday, November 13; Friday, November 14; Saturday, November 15 at 7pm, and Sunday, November 16 at 2pm in Munster Auditorium. Tickets are $6 in advance or $7 at the door (senior and student tickets $5) and are available at the Auditorium Box Office on performance nights or in advance by calling: (219) 836-3200 x245, by email at MunAud Box Office or email@example.com.
Turn Back The Clock is "feel good" comedy that explores the universal struggle between parents and their teenagers. The story begins with Charles (Andrew Bridgman) and Evelyn “Evie” Hill waiting up for the late the return of the teenage daughter one evening in1950. Evelyn is reminded of her own youthful adventures during the “Roaring 20s” of 1928, where bobbed hair, high hemlines, the Charleston, jazz, and raccoon coats were all the rage. A similar scene with the 17 year-old Evie (Lea Kilabarda) and her parents (Ashley Troumouliaris & David Pavkovich) waiting up for her in 1928, begins the tale of Evie's own courtship with her two suitors, Johnnie (Justin DalCorobbo) and Charlie (Jordan Barnes), and their coming of age. Featuring a cast of over twenty, the hilarious universal message is timeless as any teenager or parent will know.
