Staff Report

The Cloverdale High School Drama Club will present the comedy, “Hide and Shriek” this coming weekend.

Written by Tim Kelly, the show takes you on the journey of a city girl, June (Beka Jordan) who flees to the hills to escape from a mad woman who is trying to kill her. Once she arrives in the country she meets up with the Dimshrouds. They make the Beverly Hillbillies look good. Members of the clan include, Granny (Deena Hesselgrave), Ada (Haylen Eccles), Ulysses (Robert St. John) and Aesop (Dustin Boothby). The Dimshrouds then talk June into portraying their lost daughter, Daisy Belle, in order to keep receiving checks from the government. Things begin to unravel as June’s sister, Betty (Rae McFadden) shows up trying to get June to come back to the city and the mysterious hiker, Mike (Ethan Williamson) who meets an untimely death which gets the Sheriff (Mitchell Stacy) snooping around for answers.
