murder for two

The Winter Park Playhouse – August 05, 2022 to August 28, 2022

Multi-millionaire Arthur Whitney was murdered at his own birthday party, and his killer could be any of the guests. But this is no ordinary crime thriller. The whole world of this hilarious musical is brought to life by two incredible performers: one plays the detective, the other all 10 suspects and both play the piano! Murder for Two is a wildly insane tour de force musical that NY1 described as “a must-see 90-minute jolt of caffeinated creativity!”.

The sound of music

Alexis & Jim Pugh Theater – August 13, 2022 to August 14, 2022

Central Florida Vocal Arts and the Space Coast Symphony Orchestra are pleased to announce their first live performance together since 2019, Rodgers & Hammerstein’s The Sound of Music. Although the show is a classic, this production offers a new perspective and examines the relevant issues presented in the work, particularly in relation to the invasion of Ukraine. With a mission to use the performing arts to create a stronger community, Central Florida Vocal Arts chose The Sound of Music not just for its lush vocal and instrumental lines that highlight the depth of musical talent the company brings known, but also for the opportunity for community exchange. As we see the brave Austrian people defy the Nazis of World War II on stage, we cannot ignore the parallels between these characters and the real people of Ukraine fighting the Russian invasion today.
