Please note: As this production was originally scheduled for May of 2020, some of the roles have already been cast. However, we are still casting several principal, supporting, and ensemble tracks, and will be casting Swings and Understudies for all principal roles. These roles will double in the ensemble, so every cast member will be on at every performance.

The Mystery of Edwin Drood

By Rupert Holmes

Directed by Hilary Goldman

Musical Direction by Hilarie Spangler

Choreography by Cara Leggio

Stage Management by Felisha Heng


The Mystery of Edwin Drood is a hilarious, interactive whodunit mystery musical that allows the audience to enter the action and become the ultimate detectives - based on Charles Dickens’ unfinished novel of the same name. In the small town of Chesterham, England, the young and charming Edwin Drood has been mysteriously murdered. But by whom? Dickens passed away before he was able to reveal the culprit, but Rupert Holmes’ award-winning musical solves this predicament by asking the audience to choose which character is the killer by putting it to a vote. 


All actors play two parts. Each plays an actor of the Music Hall Royale as well as the character they play in the Music Hall’s production of The Mystery of Edwin Drood. British accents should be employed by all, though variations (Cockney, Scottish, Welsh, Irish, etc.) are acceptable. An dialect coach will be provided.
