Yesterday, November 20th, 2013 I went and watched a play that my school put on. Our drama department at my school is very good and always puts on a good show. The play was Murder Me Always written by Lee Mueller. In fact, Mr. Mueller came to our school to talk to our kids about the play a couple of weeks ago. He showed them some helpful things to make the show a little better.
The play had about a dozen characters overall with all equally important roles for the most part. One of the main characters is Fritz, an undercover police officer that tries to use his role of an actor to throw people off and find the real killer. This role is played by a kid named Austin who is a junior at our school. Another important part is Mr. Powers who is an actor who is fairly stuck up and likes to play around with other female cast members. This role is played by a boy named Nathan.
Henrietta is a girl who is a more elderly lady that is very confused at times on what is going on and asks many questions. This role is played by a nice girl who is a junior at our school named Ashley. Another role is a lady named Muffy, who is a demanding and rude woman who sleeps around with Mr. Powers. This role is played by a girl named Rebecca who is a senior. The director of the play who ends up getting killed and has his murder under mystery. The boy that plays this role is named Jon who is a junior.
There is also a detective that comes into the scene after the murder to sort out all of this madness. The girl that plays this role is named Peyton who is a sophomore. Another main role is an elderly stuck up lady that swings around a lot and is very rude and suspicious. This role is played by a girl named Gaby who is a senior. The last main role is a cab driver that sticks around to get his money from a cast member who didn’t pay and is walking around trying to collect the money. This role is played by a girl named Anna who is a junior.
In the play there are all of these cast members that are brought together all for a purpose. The director in this play is trying to bring all of these members together to solve a chain of play murders that goes on. All of the members of this play were somehow connected to these murders so the director wants to bring them together and keeps a close eye on them. In the end, the investigator finds out who the killer is. Will you guess the killer?
