Benefiting: Broadway Cares/Equity Fights Aids
Produced by Phoenix Stage Company

“How dangerous are props? The show must go on but all the drama is behind the scenes. This fast paced farce shows how appearances can be deceiving on stage or behind the scenery. Door slams, missed entrances, poison, gun shots and mistaken identities keep the action moving in MURDER AT THE PROP TABLE.”

Genre: Comedy, Farce

Friday 6/15/12 @ 1pm

$0.00 All Readings are FREE and open to the general public.

90 minutes (with 15 minute intermission)
