Muses and Mysteries

10-Muses and Mysteries


If you have not heard (the word is out) about the Studio Theatre’s October 13–23 presentation of two 1-act plays, best sit up and take notice!

First, Whistler’s Mother, is a jolly construction about how the iconic painting may have been conceived. Quite possibly, the real events that preceded the artists portrait of his mom were less hilarious than is our play. Whereas “Mom” in the painting is spinning one disapproval after another under her Victorian bonnet, our Anna Whistler is both warm and amusing. You will leave the theatre chuckling.

Along with the play about Whistler is a thriller that will leave you holding your breath, and even feeling perhaps a wee bit spooked. The Attic is an eerie mystery about secrets and lies discovered in a dusty attic. The night air may hum with nervous laughter and discussion as people walk to their cars, reviewing what they’ve just seen.


Date : October 21-22, 2022 from 7:30pm to 9:30pm
