2017 Spring Musical - Curtains

A show-stopping combination of classic murder mystery and musical theatre, CJ’s Spring Musical Curtains is certainly one to look forward to! 

Due to construction, however, there will be a few logistical changes to the show this year. Curtains will be held at Kennedy High School, located at 500 Woods Mill Rd, Manchester, MO 63011.
 
The fastest way to reach Kennedy from Cor Jesu is by merging onto I-44 W from Elm Avenue and Rock Hill Road. From Highway 44, take exit 272 to merge onto MO-141 N toward Valley Park. After merging onto 141 N, turn right at Burgundy Lane; take another right at the first street immediately after onto Wood Mills Road. The Kennedy front parking lot is just a quick drive from there.
 
Please arrive through the main entrance, which is signaled by a green-and-white cross and located directly next to a Kennedy sign. The theater and will call tables are just a short walk straight from the front doors.
 
The show premieres March 30th, March 31st, and April 1st at 7:00 P.M., and the cast and crew would love to see you there!

Online sales begin on Thursday, March 9th.  Advance tickets are $7.00 and can be purchased by clicking here.  Tickets can also be purchased at the door for $10.00.
 
If you have any further logistical questions, please e-mail House Manager Elisa McAtee at 17mcatee@corjesu.org.
