The fall play of 1995 at Woodinville High School will be The Musical Comedy Murders of 1940, by John Bishop. This outrageous comedy was selected for its wit and its potential for being selected for a return invitation to the International Thespian Festival in Lincoln, Nebraska, this spring.
Only 12 schools nationwide are honored by being invited to perform at the festival, and the Woodinville theatre department has been chosen 5 times in the last 8 years. Their most recent trip to Nebraska was with Neil Simon's "Rumors."
This fall's hilarious production centers on a group of ten people marooned by a blizzard and threatened by an unknown slasher. The action is set at an estate filled with sliding panels, secret passageways, dropping bodies, masked figures, and knives appering out of nowhere. Comic mayhem is the result.
Cast members include: Charnie Lane, Kasey Mason, Steve Marshall, John Barnes, Mark Piscitelli, Summer Skene, Ryan Meeks, Darrell Olson, Raelene Plant, and Amy Addams.
"The Musical Comedy Murders of 1940" will play Nov. 10, 11, 17, and 18 with a 7:30 p.m. curtain at the Woodinville High School auditorium. Tickets are $6 for adults and $5 for students with ASB card. Advance tickets are recommended and are available at the door, at the school's main office or by calling Hyalmar Anderson at 489-6751.
