Students have been working diligently in the One-Act Play under the direction of Matthew Wilmes. This year’s One-Act Play is In Memoriam by Marlene Remington.
Inspired by Agatha Christie’s Ten Little Indians, this fast moving murder mystery will send a chill down your spine. The play takes place in the pre-World War II years on isolated Castle Island, one of the Thousand Islands on the St. Lawrence Seaway in upstate New York.
Five people gather for a weekend house party that turns into a nightmare as one person after the other is first accused of being a murderer and then is murdered. Each by a different method. The plot thickens with each mysterious death until only two guests remain. Take a stab at whodunit... Even Agatha Christie would be surprised at this unique ending!
There will be a Public Performance on Friday, January 23rd, 2015 at 7pm in the High School Gymnasium. It is free and open to the public. The public can come on in to support the students and enjoy the play.
They will also be performing at Conference One-Act Play Competition at Wabasha-Kellogg High School on Saturday, January 17th at 8am and on Saturday, January 24th at 9:30am.
