GET intrigued by a murder mystery this month with free tickets to Girvan Musical Society’s annual show!

From the writers of Cabaret and Chicago – Kander and Ebb – this year, the cast take on Curtains; a musical whodunnit which follows a company of actors putting on new production Rob Hood.

But the show’s star, former movie actress Jessica Cranshaw, is terrible, and the show is getting bad reviews – how will the ambitious cast get their shot at Broadway with the “horrible” Miss Cranshaw in the lead role?

They are not left fretting for long as curtain up sees the substandard starlet fall foul of a murderous plot, beginning a mystery peppered with bright, catchy songs and larger than life characters.

The Carrick Gazette are giving away a pair of complimentary tickets to three lucky winners for the Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday performances of Curtains (first drawn will get first pick). Simply answer the following question: Curtains opened on Broadway in 2007 with David Hyde Pierce as Lieutenant Frank Cioffi. But for which NBC sitcom is the actor best known?

To be in with a chance of winning send your answer to Carrick Gazette, 32 Dalrymple Street, Girvan KA26 9AE – or email with ‘Musical Society competition’ in the subject bar – including your name, address, and daytime telephone number. Entries must have been received by Tuesday March 19 at 12pm.

Tickets for any performance (Wednesday March 20 to Saturday March 23) are available from The Sweetie Shop at 3 Dalrymple Street, or The Paper Shop at 114 Dalrymple Street, Girvan, for £8.
