Glencoe High School’s Murder Mystery – The Most Interactive One Yet!

Glencoe High School Theatre hosts their 6th annual Murder Mystery – “Back to School Fright” – April 21 and 22 at 7:30 pm.  In this newest original thriller/comedy, the audience is treated to a back to school night for fictitious Faustus High School.  The play’s high school is off to a nervous start after strange accidental deaths occurred at the end of the previous school year.  Are things as they appear or could it be foul play?

Audience members will get a schedule when they arrive (just like any other back to school night) and will go to different classrooms during the evening’s performance.  They will have even more chances this year to interact with the characters, ask questions, and experience the performance in a whole new way.  There will also be a reception and, of course, an opportunity to guess the killer.  Each night has a different ending.  Audience members are encouraged to imagine themselves as parents and siblings of the Faustus High School students and to be totally engrossed in the world of this year’s murder mystery.

Tickets are $10 and include the reception.  Tickets can be purchased from cast members, in the main office, and at the door while supplies last.  Due to the interactive nature and potential scares, the show is not recommended for young children.   For more information, call 503-844-1900 or email

Glencoe Theatre Presents a Fantastically Funny Farcical Musical


“Lucky Stiff,” music, book, and lyrics by Lyn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty, is a wildly funny, farcical musical complete with a zany cast of characters, diamonds, and a dead body.  When a down-trodden British shoe salesman learns of his multi-million dollar inheritance, little does he know that he will find himself vacationing in Monte Carlo with a corpse and the unwelcome interest of a New Jersey girl with a gun, a desperate dog home employee, and a terrified optometrist.  Full of fun music, plot twists, and classic musical energy, this crowd-pleasing show is sure to be a hit with audiences. 

Performances are February 24 and 25 and March 2, 3 and 4 at 7:30 pm.  Reserved seat tickets are available in advance from  Tickets are also available at the door.  The best seats are available in advance.  For Friday and Saturday nights, tickets are $11 general and $7 for students and seniors in advance from and $12/$8 at the door.  For thrifty Thursday night, March 2nd, all tickets are $7 in advance or $8 at the door.

Students have been working tirelessly since November to bring this delightful musical to life.  Pushing through snow days that canceled rehearsals and build days, the Glencoe team has banded together to bring you an evening of silly fun and an unexpected ending.  Don’t miss the show!
