So whodunnit? Join the iconic oddballs known as Scarlet, Plum, White, Green, Peacock, and Mustard as they race to find the murderer in Boddy Manor before the body count stacks up.

Big Fish . April 27-29, 2023  usic & lyrics by Andrew Lippa . Book by John August

Edward’s larger-than-life stories thrill everyone around him – most of all, his devoted wife Sandra – but their son Will, about to have a child of his own, is determined to find the truth behind his father’s epic tales.
