It’s April, which means the spring musical is right around the corner. This year’s spring musical is A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder

According to musical director Dr. Christina Kloch, “The show is about one Monty Navarro, who finds out after the death of his mother that he is related to the D’Ysquiths, [a royal family in London]. In fact, he is eighth in line of succession to become the next Earl of Highhurst. He is retelling his story from prison, about he dispatched everyone in his way and fell in love in the process. But, is he really to blame for all the wrong doing? Everyone will have to come find out if he is really to blame.”

Unfortunately, the 2020 musical was cancelled due to Covid-19. Dr. Kloch stated, “I am hoping that more people will come and watch the show [this year]. There was such a long period of time where we couldn’t do anything and this would be a great time to come show the musical cast and crew that they are supported by our school and community.”

The entire cast has been working very hard to prepare for this show. A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder will be performed April 15, 16 and 17 at seven in the evening in the PAC. Come out and see the show!
