The Atchison County Drama Club of ACCJSHS proudly announces its spring play, “Murder for Dummies,” produced by special arrangement with Eldridge Publishing Company. The story focuses on Myron Bernhart (Kolten Coy), a rare book collector whose collecting days are numbered when his nagging wife, Marge (Blair Fowler), decides to sell all of his books. Encouraged by the ladies of the Civic Arts League, Opaline (Baylee Pitts), JoBeth (Elizabeth Miller) and Dewitt (Jessica Holle), Marge contacts a local antique book dealer (Erin Hamilton) to come purchase the books. Myron realizes that he can’t sit idly by, so he decides to deal with it the best way he knows how - he buys a book, the first line of which is “So you want to commit a murder.” The play follows Myron and his imagination as he tries to set up the perfect murder, using a “special” glass of tea. Everything works perfectly, just as the book promises, but the ladies, Myron’s buddy Jack (Michael Moeck) and the book dealer all show up at the house foiling Myron’s plan. In the midst of all the confusion, the wrong person drinks the tea…and dies! What follows is a parade of policemen, blackmailers, and in-laws as Myron wonders just what went wrong.
Rounding out the cast are Jacob Chalfant, Cameron Cooper, Ty Ellerman, Maddison Felton, Keastra Gilliland, Gyluss Hutchens and Chris Larson. The play is directed by Noelle Walters. Paul English is the technical supervisor and Tim Walters is the set designer. The show will be performed in the ACCJSHS auditorium Friday, March 27, 2015 and Saturday, March 28, 2015 at 7:00 p.m. and Sunday, March 29, 2015.
Admission is $5 for adults, $3 for students and senior citizens, and free for children 5 and under. There will be a free-will donation dessert bar at each performance; proceeds help to fund future drama club productions.
