Drama Club to stage explosive ‘Whodunnit?’ production

DUDLEY — The Shepherd Hill Regional High School Drama Club will be presenting “The Westing Game” on Friday, January 10, and Saturday, January 11, at 7 p.m. in the Connie Vanco Galli Auditorium.

“The Westing Game” was adapted by Darian Lindle, from the Newberry Award winning novel of the same name by Ellen Raskin. “The Westing Game” is an intricate “Whodunnit?” surrounding the death of millionaire Samuel Westing and his eccentric will that challenges a group of strangers to puzzle out the clues left by Westing and discover his murderer. Along the way, as each member works out the answer, they discover truths about themselves – and their neighbors – that they may not have expected. Join the cast as they strive to find a murderer and win Westing’s fortune. Do you have what it takes to win it all in the Westing Game?

The SHRHS Drama Club is well known in the community for their past performances of What I Want to Say But Never Will, It’s All Greek to Me, and last spring’s night of one acts, “The Real Inspector Hound” and “A Mad Breakfast.”. The students are very excited to be presenting an adaptation of such a well-loved novel and have worked very hard to put the show together.

“The Westing Game” is directed by Performing Arts Director, Kristin Griffiths with co-direction by Assistant Performing Arts Director, James Foley.

Tickets are $10 for adults, $5 for students and senior citizens. Children 5 and under are free, however, please be advised that there will be flashing lights and loud explosions during the performance. Tickets may be purchased in advance or at the door.
