GHOSTS IN THE MACHINE

It begins after lunch on Melissa’s phone. Someone she doesn’t know is texting her looking for a drug hook-up. Soon, eight very different high-school kids are getting bizarre texts from numbers they don’t recognize—budding romances, bitter rivalries, even violent threats. What’s going on? And what if it’s not people connecting with other people via their phones … but phones trying to connect with other phones via their people? A one-act digital mystery for the mind and heart of the savvy texter.

Performed at Montverde Academy during the District XII Thespian Festival

Expect a few surprises to add to the fun; plus solving the mystery comes with token prizes for the winning table! Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to solve a murder (or two). Are you up to the challenge? Tickets are $15 and include a meal and the show.

FLOWERS FOR ALGERNON

Flowers for AlgernonThis is the compelling story of Charlie, a mentally retarded man, and the strange interweaving of his life with that of Algernon, a mouse. Experimental surgery has been performed on Algernon increasing his intelligence fourfold. The operation is tried on Charlie, who rapidly changes from a moron to a genius, far more intelligent than his teacher, Alice Kinnian, or the doctors who created the operating technique. As Charlie approaches the peak of his brilliance, Algernon shows frightening symptoms of regression. The play becomes a race against time in which Charlie tries to keep his new intelligence long enough to save himself and thus continue what he and Alice have found. This is a different kind of play: poignant, romantic, funny and tragic, but with hope of man’s indomitable spirit.
