Musical Theatre

Spectrum’s 2020 Mainstage Musical Theatre production is the 2014 Tony Award winning Best Musical “A Gentleman’s Guide to Love & Murder.”  Based on a Roy Horniman novel, the musical tells the tale of Monty Navarro, a poor Londoner in class obsessed Edwardian England who discovers his recently deceased mother was actually of noble birth but was disinherited when she chose to marry for love.  When Monty realizes that he is, in fact, 9th in line to become the next Earl of Highhurst, he hatches a plot to exact revenge and by doing away with the eight pompous (and wildly eccentric) members of the D’Ysquith family who stand between him and the family fortune.  All seems to be going well…..until things get complicated.  “A Gentleman’s Guide to Love & Murder” opened on Broadway in 2014 and has only just this year become available for school and community groups to license.  Spectrum will be the first organization to bring this musical to the stage in Victoria.  “A Gentleman’s Guide to Love & Murder” runs February 28, 29, March 5, 6, 7 @ 7:30 PM and March 8 @ 2:00 PM.  Tickets are $12 for adults and $10 for students and will be available in the school’s main office by mid-January, 2020.
