Oak Middle School presents “Murder in the House of Horrors”
Shrewsbury – Oak Middle School students will present the fall play, “Murder in the House of Horrors” Friday, Nov. 16, and Saturday, Nov. 17, at 7 p.m. in the Oak Middle School auditorium at 45 Oak St. in Shrewsbury.
The cast and crew of 40 students, along with Director Nathan Colby will keep the audience captivated with a whodunit murder mystery written by Billy St. John.
The action begins immediately, plunging the audience into the Hamilton Museum's lecture on “Monsters, Murderers and Madmen.” After a slightly befuddled start, Professor Dick Carlton, a renowned Egyptologist, tells of his discovery of the Pharaoh Menkaura's tomb.
Suddenly, while watching a slide of the ruler's sarcophagus, the projector goes off, plunging the auditorium into darkness. When the lights come on, the professor is dead and the priceless jewel he was holding has vanished.
The audience is now drawn into the mystery, both as witnesses and potential murderers. When Lt. Dan Morrow arrives, he narrows the suspects to seven. Was it the jealous wife? An angry benefactor? Or the exotic Egyptian who cursed the expedition?
The audience will be caught up in this thriller, uncovering the clues that reveal the killer in an electrifying climax.
Tickets for the performance are $5 and can be purchased at the door.
