REMEMBER – There is no school on Wednesday as we celebrate Yom Kippur. Yom Kippur is the holiest day of the Jewish year. It is a day of atonement after the Jewish new year, Rosh Hashanah. On this day, people of the Jewish faith ask God for forgiveness for their sins in order to secure their fate.

On a dark and stormy night, six unique guests, plus a butler and a maid, assemble for a dinner party at the home of Mr. Boddy. When their host turns up dead, it is clear that no one is safe! Soon the guests are racing to find the killer and keep the body count from stacking up.

Tickets are $10 each and will be available at the door for all performances.
