Ithaca High Announces Musical 2021

IHS Student Show Selection Committee selects A Killer Party by Kait Kerrigan for the spring 2021 musical.

A Killer Party is a murder mystery musical created by Broadway artists during quarantine 2020. This catchy pop-rock score was described by the New York Times as “a goofy lark featuring jaunting tunes” reminiscent of Agatha Christie. The musical was written exclusively for a virtual performance and includes inclusive language pronouns and interchangeable gender identities for flexible casting.

In the spring 2020, IHS students were surveyed to find out what stories they wanted to produce for the IHS play and musical. From this data, the production team vetted shows to match student interest and presented the ideas to the IHS Student Show Selection Committee before voting.
