Middle school to stage play
Twenty-one PAHS thespians will stage a mystery/comedy, "Be My Ghost" by Tim Kelly, this weekend in the school auditorium.|
Performances are Friday and Saturday nights at 7:30 p.m.
The play centers around a young writer, George Travis (Kellen Anderson), who aspires to be the next Stephen King but is suffering from writer's block. He travels to New Hampshire to marry his childhood sweetheart, Betty Fisher (Rachel McCloud).
McKenna Evans (Kay Crandall), Amelia Malling (Countess Starlight), Kellen Anderson (George Travis), and Tiffany Krupke (Zola Lewellyn) rehearse a scene for the middle school play, "Be My Ghost." Performances are Friday and Saturday nights at 7:30 p.m. this weekend.
There, the couple spend a hauntingly hilarious evening in the Black Raven Inn, which Anderson's character is set to inherit from his eccentric, deceased aunt.
Among the wildly funny guests at the inn are the ghost of Mercy Appleton (Chelsea Klein); an Egyptian mummy (Austin Mackedanz); and high school students in Halloween spirit.
In a wacky turn of events, the housekeeper (Kristine Hoeft) is murdered, switching from the silly antics of the visitors into a who-done-it mystery.
Admission to the play is a freewill donation for the drama department.
The middle school play - the mystery/ comedy "Be My Ghost" by Tim Kelly - will be staged on Friday, Nov. 10, and Saturday, Nov. 11, at 7:30 p.m. in the school auditorium.
