A small English town… A house full of people… A newspaper advertisement… “A Murder is announced and will take place on Friday, October 13th, at Little Paddocks – at six-thirty P.M. Friends please accept this, the only intimation.”
NCS Drama invites you to come and explore the world of Agatha Christie and Miss Marple in their production of A Murder is Announced. Each spring the 8th-12th grade students are able to participate in the annual theater production. This is the sixth show that NCS has produced since reviving the theater program in 2014. Under the direction of Mrs. Angie Harmon, the shows are designed and performed almost completely by students. All technical and backstage elements are led by student designers with a small amount of input from the director and production assistant. This year’s production has one major change in that we will be moving venues. Electric City Playhouse (ECP) in downtown Anderson has graciously allowed NCS Drama to rent their facility for the performance. ECP is truly a community theater that hosts both straight play and musical performances. They partner with schools as well to help encourage the dramatic arts.
The NCS Drama students will continue working hard over the next month to bring you a thrilling performance. We do, however, only recommend this show to students grades 6 and up due to gunshots, very loud vocals, and onstage deaths. The show will have 4 performances, opening on May 2nd at 7:00pm. We hope that you will be able to join us!!!
