EU Primary Tartan Logo Horiz CMYKThis non-musical comedy show takes place in a mansion in Chappaqua, NY in December 1940.  While working on a new musical, a group of theatre workers become snowed in and, unbeknownst to them, are in the presence of the “Stage Door Slasher.”   Mix in a maid with multiple personalities, secret passageways and other comedic pandemonium; you get a night of gaiety and entertainment.
