Win tickets to opening weekend of ‘A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder’

You can win a pair of tickets to opening weekend of Selma Arts Center’s “A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder.” This recent Broadway smash hit musical is a comic romp about a struggling English chap who learns he in the line of succession for an earldom — but only if he knocks off all the relatives ahead of him. Randy Kohlruss plays a plethora of members of the D’Ysquith family, guaranteeing 1) laughs; and 2) some of the quickest costume changes you’ve ever seen. The play opens Friday, March 22 and runs through Saturday, March 30.

    An Earl, 0. Now a Duchess that’s different.

  • Since I’m a women not interested in being an earl. But given the opportunity would love to didposs of my daughters ex who is baking get life hell.

    I dunno. Do Earls get paid? I mean, to be king, sure, a few deaths won’t be noticed. But just an earl? Mayyybe one kill, but only if they’re bad.

    I would like to take a coworker who also likes to go to theater.

    To become an earl… I’d probably kill no more than 6.5 people. Because after that many deaths in one family, people would become too suspicious! Also, looking forward to seeing our talented friend Maria perform on stage and the imaginative creativity that Dakota brings to directing this already wacky show!

    I’m already an Earle, so no murders for me. I would like to attend Sat evening March 22. j Earle

    I’m guessing being an earl (or whatever the female equivalent is) would be a thankless job with little or no pomp and circumstance. So, I’d say that title is not worthy of murder. However, I’d really love to see the Sunday matinee with my dear friend Debra Parola because we enjoy the performing arts– and we’ve been trying to get together for two weeks!

    I’ve never been to the Selma Theater of Arts, so this play seems like an appropriate romp for an introduction. Would love to win the tickets! I certainly enjoy the time and effort you put into this blog. Very informative and entertaining.👍

  • Linda and George Sward

    We love the Selma productions! And free tickets are a plus👍

    I would not kill to become an earl 🙈 I do however enjoy theatrical productions as an escape (like a good book or movie). Friday or Saturday at 7 PM
