“Glensheen: The Musical” — described by reviewer Dominic Papatola as a “ripping tale, well told" — returns this summer to the History Theatre in St. Paul.

The show by Jeffrey Hatcher and Chan Poling is based on the true story of the 1977 murders of Elisabeth Congdon and nurse Velma Pietila on the family’s Duluth estate.

Much of the original cast returns, including Jen Maren as Marjorie Caldwell, Wendy Lehr as Congdon and Ron Beshmesher, the attorney.

The musical plays July 11-Aug. 2 at the theater and tickets are available at historytheatre.com.
