Murder Mysteries-Volcano School of Arts and Sciences Middle School Theater Night 2019

Murder Mysteries are the theme for the Volcano School of Arts and Sciences Middle School Theater Night 2019. The 6th, 7th, and 8th graders will each perform a one-act murder mystery.

Grade 6 will perform “Café Murder” by Nathan Hartswick.   Rosemary Saint-John is a

hypochondriac convinced she is allergic to water.  Celebrating her birthday at a restaurant with

her four sisters, Rosemary’s self-centeredness makes enemies with everyone around her. When

she disappears, she is presumed murdered. Which one of the people who Rosemary angers did

it? No one is above suspicion among this cast of characters! 

Grade 7 will perform “No Body to Murder” by Edith Weiss. Bad news threatens the guests at the Come On Inn of Nova Scotia. An escaped convict in the area and a bad storm in the area. After there is a power outage the gung-ho aerobics instructor, Billie Body, has been mysteriously murdered. Suspicions rage: Was it the gardener who weeds with an axe? An inept doctor on holiday from malpractice suits? A hairdresser who constantly changes her appearance? Everyone has a hidden motive to want Billie Body dead. 

Grade 8 will give us “Dinner at Eight, Dead by Nine” By Michael Druce. The action takes place around the head table of a banquet room where guests are expecting a dinner theatre show. When the guest of honor, Eleanor Van Heusen, falls face first into her plate of spaghetti, the guests are suddenly witness to a murder!  All her family members and even the chef have

motives to kill her, yet all claim innocence. Luckily, Inspector Bungles is there to help solve this


Please join us for an evening of fun. Admission is free, but donations are gratefully accepted. Park Entrance fees may apply.
