VERMILLION, S.D. – Out of precaution for the COVID-19 pandemic, the University of South Dakota’s Department of Theatre will record their production of the Tony award winning musical comedy “A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder" for future streaming.
Tickets that were purchased for the production can be exchanged for one of the upcoming spring productions.
“A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder” follows the young and struggling Monty who discovers that he is ninth in line to an earldom and he starts plotting how he can bump off the preceding eight relatives.
This show employs social distancing in staging and incorporates face shields for the actors. In spite of the challenges of implementing these practices the director Matt Nesmith and choreographer Patricia Downey have creatively staged the show to retain its full physical humor and allow for the actors to bring the beautiful and hysterical songs brilliantly to life.
