The cast of “Dead and Breakfast,” an original murder mystery being presented by Plymouth High School drama students, includes living and ghost characters.
Posted January 2, 2017
Plymouth High School students will share original works with the public during “double-bill” performances in January.
The performances will begin at 7 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 12 and Friday, Jan. 13 in the amphitheater at the school, 125 Highland Ave. Admission is free.
The evenings will begin with members of the PHS Poetry and Writer's Club sharing their original poetry and other writings.
Then the Independent Study Advanced Acting Class, also known as the Amph-Rats Acting Company, will present “Dead and Breakfast,” an original murder mystery.
Some guests check in to the Robin’s Inn Bed and Breakfast but never check out. When a detective and his assistant arrive at the inn to investigate the recent murder of Clara Voyance, supernatural mayhem ensues as motives are questioned, sandwiches are munched, and detectives – living and dead – uncover the dark history of The Robin’s Inn.
“The play features characters that are both living and ghost-like, so audiences are sure to be amused with the antics of the characters the kids have created,” said drama teacher Janet DeJean Newton.
Members of the class are Elisabeth Balistreri, Megan Carbaugh, Tannor Gonzalez, Eric Grauman, Jordan Hefter, Emily LaVine, Jordan Lomibao, Connor McManus, Jillian Myers, Nicholas Pohl, Alan Schaefer, Justin Schmitz, Delaney Scudella, Jacob Willeford and Quinn Zwick.
