The Festival is proud to present the world premiere of a new musical adventure, The Masters of Mystery by Jenna Donnelly and Ethan Lewis Maltby, commissioned by Canterbury Festival. 

We’re in England, 1926. Lock and Doc have been friends since birth and, now both teenagers, they have a gift for solving unusual crimes.

When they arrive in the town of Nottswood, they are faced with their darkest challenge yet as an evil presence takes over the town. An exciting and fast-paced musical for all the family from the creators of DrumChasers and The Battle of Boat, The Masters of Mystery promises to have you on the edge of your seat.

Composer Ethan Lewis Maltby is a Canterbury Christ Church University graduate whose music has been performed all over the world in cinemas, stadiums and theatres. Jenna Donnelly is a lyricist and writer of platinum-selling records and has collaborated with artists on major labels such as Sony, Virgin and Warner.

The Festival is delighted and excited to host this new work as a highlight of the 2017 Season.

Post show Q&A on Friday (8pm) and Saturday (3pm).

Suitable: 12+
