The Learning Center Charter School’s drama group, The Grow Zone Players, are busily preparing for this year’s spring musical, Oh, Horrors, It’s Murder. The school will offer three performances; Friday, May 4th, Saturday, May 5th at 6:30pm and Sunday, May 6th at 2pm.
In Oh, Horrors, It’s Murder, the Hamilton museum has opened an exhibit entitled, “Monsters, Murderers, and Madmen.” Professor Johann Vanderveer has invited world renowned Egyptologist Dirk Carlton to speak about his recent trip to Egypt and the discoveries he made concerning the ancient Tomb of Menkaura. However, during the presentation, something goes awry and someone ends up dead. It is up to Lt. Dani Morrow to crack the mystery
This play is appropriate for all ages with hilarious comedy and toe-tapping songs throughout. Some audience members may get a chance to accuse characters in an attempt to discover the truth.
In addition to the perplexing mystery, there will be a live exhibit from the display of Monsters, Murderers, and Madmen for patrons to enjoy both before the show and during the intermission.
Play Director, Ryan Bender, said, “I want to thank the Jackie Ward Foundation for Academics and the Arts for supporting us, and the school for continuing to be a place that fosters not only education, but a long-lived passion for the Arts. The cast is working really hard to put on what hopes to be our best, funniest, and most hair-raising play yet!”
The musical will be performed in the auditorium on The Learning Center campus at 945 Conahetta Street in Murphy. There will be three performances — May 4th and 5th at 6:30pm and May 6th at 2pm.
