When a group of mystery writers get together to write a television script what else would you expect – but murder!
Sleepy Hollow High School students bring the roles to life this weekend when they perform Fred Carmichael’s comedic murder mystery “Done to Death.”
The five authors all gather in what appears to be an ordinary film studio but through the mystery of murder, the cast finds themselves on a Caribbean Island.
It’s a classic case of who done it with a satirical look at the murder-mystery genre.
“We often perform serious dramas,” said Director Peter Kennedy. “I wanted to provide the students with a broader opportunity to stretch their comedic side. They have come up with great ideas.”
“It is tongue-in-cheek,” commented senior Max Cover who plays a sophisticated and snobby author. Without giving anything away Cover continued, “The audience will definitely feel part of the show.”
The hours of rehearsals bring the students together. Sophomore Frankie Puleo explained, “I love it so much, especially getting close to the cast. You feel like a family by the time you are done.”
“Done to Death” opens this Friday, November 9th at 7pm in the SHHS auditorium. Performances are also on Saturday, November 10th at 2pm and 7pm.
Tickets are $5 for students and senior citizens and $10 for adults.
