We need to reinvent urban spaces to live in harmony with the planet 

Travel is about visiting someplace exotic, we’re told. Somewhere that looks, feels and tastes different, in a way that stirs our heart and stimulates our senses. But sit in the central business district of any global city today, and chances are it will look basically the same.

Byron High’s musical whodunnit will head to the stage on June 25, 26, 28, and 29. Photo supplied

After many months of hard work and rehearsing, Byron Bay High School students and staff  are about to perform their musical whodunnit on June 25, 26, 28, and 29.

Curtains is described as a murder-mystery comedy, and was originally produced on Broadway by the makers of Chicago and Cabaret.

Adrienne Megan Lester (Meg) from Umbrella Theatrical Productions and co-founder of the Bangalow Theatre Company, is director.

She told The Echo, ‘The cast have embraced the project and every rehearsal with more gusto than I have seen a group collectively offer in over 20 years!’

Curtains is set in the late 1950s in Boston, with a production cast and crew on the cusp of staging their debut performance. A faded and bitter film star makes enemies quickly, and after she is mysteriously murdered on opening night, police keep the crew sequestered in the theatre to solve the crime. 

Doors open at 6pm for a 6.30pm show. For tickets, visit www.trybooking.com/CSHTN.
