"Communicating Doors" tells the story of a London sex specialist from the future who falls center stage into a murder plot. Murder victims from the past travel back-and-forth through time in order to unravel the mystery of their violent deaths. With the help of time-traveling hotel doors, these victims race through forty years of sheer lunacy in an attempt to rewrite their ill- fated histories.

Under the direction of Mark Liermann, the all-student cast includes Bobby Clemence, Talia Grzelewski, David Cooper, Allie Pelletier, Landon Cally and Jessica Parsons.

Free performances by graduating seniors of WMU's music theatre performance program will follow the performances on February 8, 9, 15 and 16.
