It’s nearly showtime for the cast and crew of Saucon Valley High School’s spring musical.

The school’s theatre department will present “Curtains,” a musical whodunit from the creators of “Chicago” and “Cabaret,” with four performances in the high school auditorium: on Thursday, Friday and Saturday at 7 p.m. and Sunday at 2 p.m.

Tickets are $12 per person ($10 for seniors and students) and may be purchased online in advance or at the door.

The show is rated PG-13.

According to a Wikipedia entry about the musical, “Curtains” is “a send-up of backstage murder mystery plots, set in 1959 Boston, Massachusetts and follows the fallout when Jessica Cranshaw, the supremely untalented star of Robbin’ Hood of the Old West is murdered during her opening night curtain call. It is up to Lt. Frank Cioffi, a police detective who moonlights as a musical theater fan to save the show, to solve the case, and maybe even find love before the show reopens, without getting killed himself.”
