“The Soapy Murder Case”

presented by CHS Drama Club

The Cloverdale High School Drama Club will present the comedy - “The Soapy Murder Case” on Friday, March 17th and Saturday, March 18th. The play will begin each evening at 7 PM in the Cafetorium. An admission will be charged.

“The Soapy Murder Case”, written by Tim Kelly, is a comedy revolving around the soap opera “The Best Tears of Our Lives”. Life in a soap opera meets life in a New York penthouse, resulting in a lampoon with wild madness. Crusty Horatio Tucker (Evan Williamson), sponsor of TV’s most popular soap, receives a mysterious note saying the clue to his killer will be found in the next episode. He invites the cast to his place and forces them to act out the episode. Soon there’s murder and chaos. A nasty network executive is dead and so is Dr. Rittenhouse (Jimmy Tate). Then, Tucker is dispatched via chicken soup from the soap’s saintly mother character, Mona La Mooch (Jessica Geiger). With characters slipping in and out of their roles and plastic surgeons, welfare cheaters, theatrical hams and assorted zanies running loose the action is alive with marvelous surprises, gags and delightful dialogue. Filling out the cast are: Jessica Courtney (Emma McLaughlin), Officer Diane Somerset (Sadie Priest), Dottie Duncan (Ruthie Mann), Ive M. Robespierre (Sarah Grossbier), Link Kennecott (Marcus Priest), Phil Reinholt (Joseph Maldonado), and Mrs. Naugahide (Chloe Mannan). The play is under the direction of Brad Sandy with student assistant, Kiara Boyd. Make plans now to come have a night of laughs!
