  It’s time to test your theatrical know-how! Every day, we’ll post a trivia question about the world of performing arts (musicals, plays, ballets, actors and so on). Your job is to find out the answer.

 

  You’ll have 48 hours from the exact time the question was posted to submit your answer. Please create a group PM with Adaleine Shuster and myself (Prof. Sky Alton) with the subject line ‘Trivia’. Submit all new answers as a reply to that particular message, rather than creating a new one for each answer. If you’re not sure how to set up a group PM, just ask one of us and we’d be only too happy to help.

 

  You’ll earn 1 ruby per correct answer submitted within the 48 hour window (that’s 30 in total across the month). Break a leg!
