Murder Ballad

June 17 - July 3
Ivy Tech Waldron Auditorium


You’ve heard the story before – but not like this!

The plot of Murder Ballad is as old as the hills – a love-triangle goes terribly wrong – but as a piece of theatre it is utterly new! Murder Ballad is a sung-through pop-rock opera set in a working bar with an onstage band rockin’ the house. Quench your thirst at your table while the musical action unfolds all around you!

Murder Ballad is the story of Sara who reignites a relationship with an old flame, risking everything she has for a passion beyond her control. It’s a spellbinding story about the complications of love, the compromises we make, and the betrayals that undo us. And like all good murder ballads, there are twists you just don’t see coming!

On a hot June night, join Cardinal Stage for a night of music, passion, and a twist on the oldest crime in the book. Experience the Ivy Tech Waldron Auditorium as a full-functioning bar and home to the most compelling theatre experience of the season.
