The Musical Comedy Murders of 1940 Debuts November 9th

Marking the kickoff of their 33rd season, CBA’s Pegasus Production Company presents John Bishop’s The Musical Comedy Murders of 1940 beginning Friday, November 9th in Henderson Theater.

Set in 1940 at the mansion of Elsa Von Grossenknueten, The Musical Comedy Murders of 1940 centers on the creative team from “Manhattan Holiday,” a recent Broadway flop. They are back together seeking financial support for their new musical comedy. As the guests arrive, a snowstorm begins, trapping them all inside. While the group attempts to rehearse, they get caught up in the mystery of the “stage door slasher.” Fingers are pointed, secret passageways are discovered, and the true identities of all in attendance are revealed.

Pegasus is a student-run company, led by a Board of Directors consisting completely of students. Each production features a set, costumes, and lighting designed and created by the students, and is overseen by Theater Director Mr. Marcos Orozco.

The Musical Comedy Murders of 1940 will play performances on November 9, 10, 16 and 17 at 7:00 p.m., November 11 at 2:00 p.m., and November 16 at 5:00 p.m. in Henderson Theater.

Tickets cost $10 for adults (over 16), $7 for children, and $5 for seniors and students of CBA. Tickets can be purchased at More information about the show and about Pegasus Production Company can be found on the CBA website or on the company’s social media pages on FacebookTwitter and Instagram.
