Silver Line Theatre Exchange and Stuart Hall School present The Musical Comedy Murders of 1940



The Musical Comedy Murders of 1940 is a fast-paced and deliriously funny farce that takes place in an isolated mansion in the middle of a snowstorm. A group of performers and producers are cut off from the outside world with only a deranged murderer (the Stage Door Slasher) for company. Complete with secret passages, baffling mysteries and a bewilderingly bizarre cast of characters, this brilliantly plotted play has become a modern comedy classic.


Since 2021, SLTE has partnered with Stuart Hall to offer curricular and co-curricular theatre classes and one annual performance. Classes taught for Stuart Hall have included playwrighting, fencing, and classical and contemporary acting.
