trevor eadanCongratulations to Shoreline music student Trevor Eaden, who took first place in two regional singing competitions this spring. In March, he won the Classical Voice/College I category (students with 1-3 years of college-level study) at the annual adjudications of the Puget Sound Chapter of the National Association of Teachers of Singing, held at Seattle Pacific University. In April, Trevor was awarded first place in the College/Adult Classical Voice Category at the Performing Arts Festival of the Eastside held in Bellevue. Trevor studies voice with Shoreline Community College music instructor Dr. Fred Lokken, and has participated in the choirs, opera workshop, and two music department Honors Recitals during his first year at the college. Way to go, Trevor!

The Mystery of Edwin Drood opens this Fri., May 13

Shoreline Community College presents this interactive whodunit mystery musical in Steampunk style.

The Mystery of Edwin Drood is a hilarious, interactive whodunit mystery musical that allows the audience to enter the action and become the ultimate detectives. The show is based on Charles Dickens’ unfinished novel of the same name. In small town of Chesterham, England, the young and charming Edwin Drood has been mysteriously murdered. But by whom? His leering romantic rival, John Jasper? The infamous purveyor of opium and vice, Princess Puffer? The mysterious Landless twins, newly arrived from Ceylon? Or someone else even more dastardly and villainous? Dickens passed away before he was able to reveal the culprit. Rupert Holmes’ award-winning musical solves this predicament by asking the audience to choose which character is the killer by putting it to a vote. Staged in metatheatrical manner by the Shoreline Community College Musical theater department, we have crafted a cast full of colorful characters while reflecting the modern world we live in today—Steampunk elements and gender bent roles. This charming and inventive musical is sure to intrigue and entertain any musical or mystery lover.

All actors play two parts. Each plays an actor of the Music Hall Royale and also the character he or she plays in their production of The Mystery of Edwin Drood.
