Raleigh, NC, November 14, 2013 --(PR.com)-- William Peace University, a private four-year university located in downtown Raleigh, has announced that the university will host a new production of The Mystery of Edwin Drood, written by Rupert Holmes, on Thursday, Nov. 14 through Saturday, Nov. 23.

Peace St., with an additional matinee performance from 2 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. on Nov. 23. Jason Dula, associate professor of musical theatre, will serve as director of the musical.
