Opening curtain is tonight for the Fall Play at Sheridan High School, produced by the SHS Drama Club. Club sponsor and the play's director, Aaron Odom, explains how he came to choose the comedy “Done to Death,” which spoofs – and yet makes a social commentary on – the genre of murder mysteries.
Starring a cast of about twenty students, Odom gives us a general outline of the plot.
Set in the early '70's, the piece, while very funny, also makes a statement, Odom says, on artistic trends: once you have a good idea, don't overdo it – or... do it to death.
Curtain times tonight, Friday and Saturday evenings are 7:30, with a Sunday matinée at 2. Cost is $3 for students and $6 for adults and are available at the SHS main office during school hours or at the door.
