The St. Michaels Middle High School Drama is presenting its fall play, Drop Dead, at the school auditorium this Friday and Saturday night.
Like its last production, it is a play within a play, and it is very funny., The audience never stopped laughing. Reviews of other productions have called it “a nonstop physical comedy … (Variety)”, and, “a wacky slapstick comedy that will have you laughing out loud (KBIG)”.
A cast of has-been actors plan to revive their careers in the show, directed by Victor Le Pewe (a psychotic eye twitching megalomaniac) played wonderfully by senior Max Brennan. The cast is totally incompetent, the script a shambles, and egos are running wild. The playwright is mad at the director, the old stage star is deaf and can’t remember lines or blocking, and poor Phillip, the stage manager is just trying to hold everything together – literally!
At the dress rehearsal the set falls, props break, and the producer and an actor are murdered.
During Act 2, the opening night, the murders continue, and the cast is just wants to stay alive for curtain calls.
And the snow – you will just have to come see the show to get that reference!
Seniors Tori Gomez, as the Inspector, and Kyla Mullaney, as the Ghost of the Late Mr. Barrington, show how their acting skill have grown over the last few years.
The show will be presented Friday and Saturday night at the St. Michaels Middle High School Auditorium. The show starts at 7:00, with the doors opening at 6:30. Tickets can be purchased at the door.
Note that the show has gun shots and is rated PG-13 for mild adult themes.
