'Bone-Chiller' hits Centennial High stage
The murder-mystery opened Nov. 6, runs through Nov. 15
Was it the butler? The pediatrician? The maid? The stranger? The kindergarten teacher? The groom? The relatives?
The Centennial High School Drama Department is presenting a comedy mystery-thriller called Bone-Chiller by Monk Ferris.
The show opened Thursday, Nov. 6, with performances continuing through Saturday, Nov. 15.
Its a show in which the audience gets to try to help solve the puzzle, said Director Kellie McCarty, noting Bone-Chiller was a departure from productions such as last springs Shriek.
This falls cast and crew include about 40 students.
Senior Grace Dawald, a junior, plays the over-the-top Zita Van Zok. She has a lot of energy and (is) exhausting, Dawald joked.
She and fellow cast members warn audience members to be careful who they trust in the play, and dont be rude to powerful people.
David Miller, a senior playing Buzzy Burdett, said he enjoyed how the production was an ensemble group effort that made the play everyones baby.
Buzzy is the comedic relief, Miller said. Hes here to party during the most intense parts, and hes not ashamed.
Miller noted that audience members would receive clues on the backs of their programs to follow along.
Zachary Alleger, a junior playing Jerry Delliun, said he still gets the creeps acting in a murder-mystery production. The play, he said, has stretched all the actors.
Jerry is a big nerd in the 1970s, Alleger said. If Trivial Pursuit were a person, itd be Jerry.
McCarty and students said the play was appropriate for most age groups. However, because it is so information heavy, they recommend it for audience members in late grade school or older.
