CoSA presents its fall musical The Mystery of Edwin Drood
This wildly warm-hearted theatrical experience kicks off when the Music Hall Royale (a hilariously loony Victorian musical troupe) “puts on” its flamboyant rendition of an unfinished Dickens mystery in The Mystery of Edwin Drood. The story itself deals with John Jasper, a Jekyll-and-Hyde choirmaster who is quite madly in love with his music student, the fair Miss Rosa Bud. Now, Miss Bud is, in turn, engaged to Jasper’s nephew, young Edwin Drood. Our title character disappears mysteriously one stormy Christmas Eve-but has Edwin Drood been murdered? And if so, then whodunnit? Musical numbers include “Perfect Strangers,” “Both Sides of the Coin,” “The Wages of Sin,” “Don’t Quit While You’re Ahead” and “Moonfall.” The giddy playfulness of this play-within-a-play draws the audience toward one of the play’s most talked-about features, which allows the audience to vote on the solution as prelude to the most unusual and hilarious finale!

What's the difference between a CoSA production and a Broadway production? The cost of the ticket! You get practically the same amazing music, dance and acting for about one-fifth the cost! Many theatre-goers say they like CoSA productions even better. Ticket sales do not cover the cost of the show, however, so if you are impressed by what you see, show your love by making a donation at this link: https://coronado.ejoinme.org/supportdrood.
