Sidney's School Play "Who Dunit...And To Whom?" By Robert Frankel On April 24 & 25

 


Looking for the “Whodunit” to end all “Whodunits”? Then look no further! This hilarious spoof of the classic “gumshoe story” has more twists than a loop of licorice. Henpecked paint salesman Harold Finnegan(Camden Berka) is trying to pound out his umpteenth third-rate detective story on his typewriter. As he writes, we see the actions played out by actors on stage. And as he corrects his writing, we see the actors forced to revise their actions! Harold’s story introduces us to the beautiful Russian painter nicknamed Anytime(Taylor Thiessen), and our hero, Detective Grip(Christian Anglesey). As the Russian spins her tale, she faints, and when the “pizza guy”(Danny Johnson) shows up, he believes that Grip has killed her, though he does pause long enough to accept a generous tip. From there, our tale really goes wild — from policeman wielding rubber bands (Harold doesn’t like violence in his plays) to Sheila Crylinski (Kennedy Anglesey) to Grip’s vengeful daughter, the electronic genius Bitsy(Jaz Hodge). Strange characters keep cropping up... characters with the power to stop the play and freeze the other characters. Who really is writing this play anyway? Is it Harold? Or has he lost control of his own thoughts? Directed by Christy Pierce. April 24 & 25 at 7pm and April 26 at 2pm. $5 adults and $3 seniors/students.
