The Sound of Mu…rder


Written by Andy Hawkes

In this particular AmDram group the hills may well be alive… but not for much longer.

SKU: 028 Category: Tags: ,


In the world of amateur dramatics, egos can often run dangerously close to the surface and none more so than those of the ladies of the local musical society, who on arrival for their weekly rehearsal for their forthcoming production of The Sound of Music find their rehearsal hall double booked. As tempers begin to flare, skeletons start to emerge from the most unlikely of places and petty jealousies begin to take on epic proportions. And for one particular prima donna, her moment of stardom is about to be cut dramatically short.
