QUINCY — A staged reading of “The Angels of the Imperial Hotel,” an original musical by Logan Mulch, will take place Saturday, July 15, at Quincy University’s MacHugh Theatre. Performances are at 2 p.m. and 7:30 p.m.

“The Angels of the Imperial Hotel” tells the story of the unfortunate lives and deaths of Ivy Johnson, Liam Collins and Anthony Clarke. Investigators saw these three deaths as nothing more than an accident, a series of tragic events. But everything changes when a letter shows up claiming there is more to the story. This theatrical love letter has twists and turns that leave viewers guessing until the last minute.

An ensemble of more than performers will bring this show to life for the first time. The cast consists of:

  • Olivia Jones
  • Cheyenne VanMeter
  • Jeremy Kurfman
  • Julian Holt
  • Addison Zanger
  • Natalie Predmore
  • Conall Wolfmeyer
  • Drew Quintero
  • Gretchen Wolfmeyer
  • Nicole Herrington
  • Brendan Shea
  • Jude Steiner-Haubrich
  • Cecilia Bruening
  • Sarah Predmore
  • Mekia Gay
  • Randy Wolfmeyer
  • Jerilyn Dufresne

This show also includes original music by Ziven Crist, Rain Mariz, Emilie Schulte, Jane Hartman, Colby Schulz, Nancy Geissler and Logan Mulch. Trinity Schnelle serves as stage manager, and vocal cirector is Jillian Miller.

In a press release, Mulch said, “Theater has been a part of my life for nearly a decade, and only being 16, that is a decent chunk of my life. ‘The Angels of the Imperial Hotel’ is something I have been working on for a little over a year now, and it has truly been a process. Between moments of celebration and moments of doubt and fear, this project has pushed forward and really grown as a piece, and also has given me cause to grow as well. This show is very different structurally speaking, and everything about the way it is structured screams a love of theater and performing.”

Tickets for the musical are $5, payable at the door before each performance (cash or check only). Ticket reservations must be made in advance at angelsoftheimperial.wixsite.com/hotel.

This production is not recommended for children under the age of 12. It deals with dark and sensitive topics such as death, murder and toxic family environments.
