POTTSTOWN PA – A house with secret passages and sliding panels. A maid who may not be what she seems. A wealthy investor who has called an eclectic group of creators together to produce a new show. And “The Stage Door Slasher,” still on the loose. “The Musical Comedy Murders of 1940” provide a formula for comedy in four remaining performances at Steel River Playhouse, 245 E. High Street in Pottstown.

In this play written by John Bishop and directed by Liz McDonald, the creative team responsible for a recent Broadway flop (in which three chorus girls were murdered by the mysterious “Stage Door Slasher”) assemble for a backer’s audition of their new show at the Westchester estate of a wealthy “angel.” Will the Slasher strike again?

“We can’t wait for audiences to laugh along as they watch the mystery unfold,” playhouse Managing Director Rita Pederson said. Can guess you “whodunnit?”

Seats are available for shows scheduled Friday and Saturday (March 18 and 19) at 8 p.m., and Saturday and Sunday (March 20) matinées at 2 p.m. Tickets are $29 for adults, $24 for seniors age 65 and older, and $17 for students. They can be purchased online here, or by calling the box office at 610-970-1199.
