Beth Tfiloh Community Theatre just closed a performance of “The Mystery of Edwin Drood,” a Tony Award-winning, solve-it-yourself musical comedy. The four performances took place on Aug. 18, 20, 22 and 25.
“The Mystery” is based on an unfinished novel by Charles Dickens and introduces eight suspects, each with his or her own conniving motive. The mystery concludes with the audience voting for the character they believe committed the crime. The actors were prepared to perform one of eight different endings each night, depending on the audience’s vote.
Joining in the fun were many BT alumni and parents, including Max Spitz (class of ‘12), father David Spitz, Dr. Kevin Ferentz, wife Lisa Ferentz and sons Zack (‘08) and Noah (‘12). Current BT students likewise got into the fun.
