Theatre Company of Saugus Presents: “Jack the Ripper: The Whitechapel Musical”

October 26, 2017, 8:00 pm

Theatre Company of Saugus presents the North Shore premiere of Jack the Ripper:  The Whitechapel Musical.  In 1888, five prostitutes were brutally murdered in London’s Whitechapel district.  Their deaths were credited to one killer.  With play-by-play accounts constantly published in the local press, the case took on a life of its own, even giving the killer his famous moniker, until after the death of the fifth victim, when the murders mysteriously stopped.  The case remains unsolved to this day.  This musical is one fictional possibility.  Music and lyrics are by Steven Bergman, with book and lyrics by Christopher-Michael DiGrazia.

Performances are Thursday-Friday-Saturday evenings, October 19-20-21, 26-27-28, at 8:00 PM, with afternoon matinees on Sundays, October 22 & 29, 2017 at 2:00 PM.  Tickets are $25. Tickets may be purchased online at TCSaugus.org.
