Bronaugh theater to be resurrected

Wednesday, March 29, 2017

Actors and actresses will return to the stage at Bronaugh High School for the first time in a number of years to perform Cafe Murder on April 8-9.

"We haven't had an active theater program at Bronaugh for a long time," principal Jordan Dickey said. "I am so happy Mrs. Shaw is bringing it back and getting students involved in a school production. We have a few students who haven't been involved in any activities at school, and I am happy to report they are active in theater and enjoying themselves. The students have put in a lot of hard work, learning lines, selling tickets, and taking care of all the 'behind the scenes' work that goes on with a play. I am extremely proud of them and can't wait to see their play."

Cafe Murder is a murder mystery dinner theater written by Nathan Hartswick. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. for both the Saturday, April 8 and Sunday, April 9 show at Bronaugh High School.

"Rosemary Saint-John is a loud, annoying hypochondriac convinced she is allergic to water," publisher Pioneer Drama Service's website reads. "Celebrating her birthday at a restaurant with her four kooky sisters--a hippie, a valley girl, a trucker and a banker--Rosemary makes enemies with everyone around her. When she disappears and is presumed murdered, the only objective witnesses in the restaurant are the audience members, who must cast their vote. Was it one of Rosemary's sisters? The self-taught detective? The passionate French chef? The polite and proper ma"tre d'? The sarcastic waiter? No one is above suspicion in this delightful dinner theatre murder mystery! Immensely popular with audiences, this play is appropriate for young performers, while older actors will enjoy improvised audience interaction. Whether for young or old, you'll find lots of laughs at the café!"
