 Get rid of your winter blues with two great shows for one ticket price!
Get your ticket for the hilarious murder mystery, THE MUSICAL COMEDY MURDERS OF 1940, and use the same ticket for admission the following weekend for HAIRSPRAY!
 Reminiscent of the board game CLUE, the MUSICAL COMEDY MURDERS OF 1940 will leave you guessing right up until the very last moment. Full of laughs and fun, the entire family will love this side-splitting comedy!
And... the following weekend, enter the new world of the retro 1960s! Full of tremendous dancing, singing, and even bigger hair - you don't want to miss this Tony Award winning hit broadway musical… HAIRSPRAY! 
The story follows Tracy Turnblad, a lovable and determined young teen whose only dream is to dance on the ever popular “Corny Collins Show.” When her dream finally becomes reality, she is instantly thrown into the dazzling world of fame and stardom, and even falls for Baltimore teen heartthrob, Link Larkin, along the way! Follow Tracy and other vivacious characters that are a part of her story - including her quirky sidekick Penny Pingleton, introverted mother Edna Turnblad, her remarkably talented classmate Seaweed, reigning Baltimore Queen Amber Von Tussle, and even Corny Collins himself! 
Join us on February 3rd, 4th, and 5th for THE MUSICAL COMEDY MURDERS OF 1940 and then come back on February 10, 11, 12 for HAIRSPRAY! to enjoy two great weekends of shows at the Pineville High Theatre!
