WEEKEND MATTERS: Millennial Theatre’s ‘A Killer Party: The Musical’ available for streaming

Also happening around the Valley this weekend, Stambaugh Auditorium is presenting a virtual recital.

YOUNGSTOWN — The Millennial Theatre Company’s final online production, “A Killer Party: The Musical,” will be available for streaming starting today.

Streaming access is $20 for a single ticket (single viewer in a single location) and $30 for a family ticket (multiple viewers in one location). Once streaming access is purchased, the streaming code provided will be active for 48 hours after the play button is hit for the first time. The production will be available to stream for a limited time only. To purchase tickets, click here.

The production, directed by Joe Asente with music direction by Savannah Florkowski, was rehearsed and recorded in a digital format and features actors from six states and three countries. 

“A Killer Party” tells the story of Varthur McArthur, the artistic director of a failing theater in Duluth, who invites his troupe of disgruntled actors and collaborators to the first read of an "immersive murder mystery dinner party." 

“Each time we do one of these virtual shows, we learn from the previous one, and I think we have truly perfected the model of virtual shows with this production,” Asente said in a news release. “We have been able to successfully combine the remote production aspect of ‘Songs for a New World’ while maintaining the detailed camera work of ‘The Last Five Years.’ And, most importantly, we are able to say that we successfully kept theatre alive — safely — without a single case of COVID throughout the pandemic.”

Students to perform Beethoven sonatas during Stambaugh virtual concert

YOUNGSTOWN — Three students of Youngstown pianist and organist Sean Baran will present three of Ludwig van Beethoven’s works for solo piano in Stambaugh Auditorium's next virtual performance.

The recital will stream live for free beginning at 6 p.m. today in The Digital Concert Hall app.

The Moonlight, Waldstein and Appassionata sonatas will feature soloists Luke Martinucci, Liam Clark and Jackson Hunt.

Martinucci is a senior at Ursuline High School. His love for piano and music has led him to participate in many festivals and competitions such as the Cleveland Institute of Music's Summer Sonata.

Clark is a freshman at Lincoln Park Performing Arts Charter School.

Hunt is a junior at Lincoln Park Performing Arts Charter School. His piano playing and composing has earned him state and national awards and has been heard in prestigious venues such as Carnegie Hall.
