The drama club will be holding their second murder mystery dinner on February 17 at the Paoli Community Center. The doors will open at 6:00 p.m. with the dinner starting at 6:30 p.m. and the show starting at 7 p.m. Tickets are $20 and must be purchased beforehand due to the food and table preparations. Anyone wanting to buy a ticket must talk to drama director Maria Wishart or a cast member before the day of the dinner.
The show is called Once Upon a Murder, and the cast members will be acting as fairy tale characters. To be successful, each actor must be comfortable interacting with the audience without a script.
“Drama members are characters that perform conversations and scenes that are partly planned ahead and partly on-the-spot. They interact with the audience as much as the audience will play along,” said Wishart.
If anyone who is not part of the drama club would like to participate, they must talk to Wishart and be comfortable improvising while still staying in character. Be sure to buy your tickets and attend a fun show on February 17.
