High school students present play that’s a holiday mystery
The South Tahoe High School Drama Department will present its first production of the school year, “Laughter in the Dark,” this weekend. Performances will be at 7 p.m. Friday and Saturday, with a special matinee performance at 2 p.m. Sunday. All shows will be at the South Tahoe High School Little Theater.
This play is a mystery and a comedy with a holiday twist. An oddly assorted group of people have gathered on a snowy Christmas Eve at the mysterious manor of Creeching Cheyney.
Here, they listen to the reading of the will of their recently deceased uncle that lays out certain stipulations that must occur before they can inherit their bequests.
The excitement and suspense builds with the appearance of skeletons, ghosts and rattling chains as well as the ever-present butler, who is not all he seems.
When an uninvited guest shows up one can only guess what will happen next.
The play features the talents of seniors Megan Roberto and Thomas Mooney; juniors Brianna Biller, Brandon Brown, Thomas Grubbs, Josh Miller and Evan Sarosik; sophomores Sara Fay Katz, Ali Martinez and Allison Kern; and freshman Melanie McHugh.
Take a break from the holiday rush to enjoy this delightful seasonal romp. Admission is $6 general, $5 for seniors and students, $3 for students with an ASB card, and free to STHS Super ASB card holders. Tickets will be available at the door.
If you would like to wish your favorite actor or actress good luck before the performance, consider sending them a Stargram. Three types of Stargrams will be available for purchase in the theater lobby prior to the performance and range in cost from 50 cents to $5. All proceeds from the Stargrams will benefit the STHS Performing Arts Department.
