Murder at the 16th Annual Montrose County Spelling Bee

Sacred Fools Theatre, Los Angeles, May 2008

The first full musical I ever designed was for Halloween Magic, a nonprofit organization that raises funds for HIV/AIDS service organizations in the Houston area. The story was loosely based on the popular musical 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, but reinpterpreted as murder mystery.
