Crass, campy, and cannibalistic, SILENCE! THE MUSICAL is a laugh-out-loud naughty satire of the Oscar Award winning film, The Silence of the Lambs. Rookie FBI agent Clarice Starling matches wits with the brilliant but insane psychiatrist, Dr. Hannibal (The Cannibal) Lecter in order to catch the notorious serial killer, Buffalo Bill. Clarice faces her own demons while racing the clock to unlock Dr. Lecter’s clues before another innocent girl loses her life…….and her skin.

RUN TIME: 90 minutes, no intermission
