The Lehigh Valley Charter High School for the Arts (Charter Arts) will be the first high school to produce Vanishing Point, a new musical - book and lyrics by Rob Hartmann and Liv Cummins, music by Rob Hartmann, original concept and additional lyrics by Scott Keys. This production is directed by Kelly Bickert.
The story centers around aviatrix Amelia Earhart, evangelist Aimee Semple McPherson, and author Agatha Christie - who each vanished mysteriously. Agatha disappeared for eleven days; Aimee disappeared for three weeks, and, of course, Amelia vanished completely. Vanishing Point, a musical comedy-fantasy, brings these three women together as they solve the mystery of their disappearances from their own lives. The show has a cast of three; the women play not only their central role but also each others’ mothers, husbands, friends, reporters, and so on.
Evening performances are October 16 - 19, and October 23 - 26 at 7 p.m.
Matinee performances are October 19 & 20 at 2 p.m.
