"Murder with Tomato Sauce"

Make-up Date Sat. April 28th

The High School Spring Play is now in production. The students have been busy memorizing lines and creating some magical moments on the stage.

Detective Rathbone invites the world's greatest detectives to dinner and challenges them to solve a murder. But soon, the detectives themselves are being murdered, one by one. Join the sinfully wealthy Horace and Hilda Higgenbotham, the pompous inspector Rupert, the world's youngest detective, the insolent Cynthia Salt, and her classless parents, all of whom must find their way through fake clues, surprises, and the appearance of the highly suspicious Red Herring.

Join us for a night of murder and suspense!
