This weekend is the annual spring musical at The Learning Center Charter School located at 945 Conaheeta Street in Murphy. The school’s drama troupe, the Grow Zone Players, is presenting Oh, Horrors! It’s Murder! On Friday, May 4th at 6:30pm, Saturday, May 5th at 6:30pm and Sunday, May 6th at 2:00pm.
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 case.
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. At intermission of the Saturday, May 5th show, North Carolina Poet Laureate, Shelby Stephenson, will read some of his poetry and discuss what goes into being Poet Laureate.
Tickets are on sale at the school and online at www.naturallygrownkids.org. Call 835-7240 for more information.
