SCHS Performs "Mandate For Murder" This Weekend

By Rob Sussman, WJBD News

The Salem Community High School Thespian Society's presentation of "Mandate For Murder", a comical and political murder mystery written by Pat Cook, is set to open on Thursday, October 3rd at the Salem Community Theater; and the cast has been hard at work to make the show a real event. The show features multiple endings that are determined by audience participation.

The cast is under the direction of Drew Johnson and assistant director Hillary Chappel, and while many details of the plot are under tight lock and key: the play follows a colorful crew of characters including the clueless Dolores, played by Alexa Smith, the suspicious Millie Kensington, portrayed by Stephanie Allen, and Anthony Martin playing the role of Mayoral Candidate Matt Kensington, a novice politician, Connor Stephenson as Macauley Tarleton, a newspaper editor as well as nearly a dozen other Salem High School Students.

The society will perform "Mandate for Murder" on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday at 7:00pm each night with a final matinee show on Sunday, October 6th, at 3:00pm. For ticket information, visit the Salem Community Theater on Facebook.
