Brewster Theater Company Presents its Autumn Mystery, Brooke’s Rehearsal for Murder

One year ago, famed actress Monica Welles seemingly committed suicide after the opening of her Broadway debut. Now, the playwright Alex Dennison has gathered the cast and crew of that play to read a rough draft of his new play – one which bears striking similarities to the events leading up to Monica’s death. But nothing is what it seems in Brewster Theater Company’s production of REHEARSAL FOR MURDER, the stage adaptation (by D.D. Brooke) of Richard Levinson and William Link’s (“Murder, She Wrote”, “Columbo”) teleplay. Winner of the Edgar Award from the Mystery Writers of America, REHEARSAL FOR MURDER will keep you guessing until the final curtain comes down!

A gripping thriller that will have you on the edge of your seat, REHEARSAL FOR MURDER is directed by Stephen DiRocco of Wilton, CT and features Jody Bayer and Alexis Vournazos of Danbury, CT; Kristen Casey of Cornwall-on-Hudson, NY; Andrew Coletti and Lauren Mallet of New Fairfield, CT; Barbara Disraeli, David Gaudreau, and Bruce Tredwell of Brewster, NY; Lori Franzese of Carmel, NY; Steve Ross of New Milford, CT; and Stephen Taliaferro of Bethel, CT.
REHEARSAL FOR MURDER will be performed November 9 and 10 at 8 PM and at the Living Arts Center of The Community of the Holy Spirit (formerly The Melrose School), 120 Federal Road, Brewster, NY 10509. Please call 845-598-1621 or log onto to make reservations or obtain more information about the show.
Produced by special arrangement with Dramatic Publishing Company. This event is made possible, in part by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the NY State Legislature and with public funds from Putnam County. These grant programs are managed and monitored by the Putnam Arts Council.
