The show began at 7:05 pm with director Kathy Paladino's introduction. She explained how hard the cast has worked and the rules of the new theater, including no food, drinks, and flash photography. She also explained that there was to be a raffle for a basket of gift cards with up to 75 dollars worth of value. When she finished, the theater went black, and only the stage was illuminated. One by one, the actors and actresses stepped out. The cast included Evan Stechauner and Mary Raus acting as Whitney and Jessica Olive, eminent mystery novelists and married couple. Other cast members include Maya Lee Lopez acting as Mildred Z. Maxwell, a quirky old woman with logical murders in her books, Eli Lemma as Rodney Duckton, a retired writer with an ego, and last but Loading...not least, Jon Jesudasen as Brad Benedict, a young spy fiction writer already past his prime. The play was about this eccentric group of mystery novelists attempting to collaborate in order to make a bestseller. They each portrayed their distinct style of writing by creating stories on the spot with other characters, using their “imagination” so they (and the audience) could see it. As the play went on, there were more and more murder mysteries within the main story. It ends with the writers explaining that everything that occurred only happened within their imagination, but then an actual murder occurs and it's up to them to solve it.
When the play was finished, the actors and actresses were eagerly waiting in the lobby to greet their family and friends. They received flowers, grams, and hugs as congratulations for their excellent work. Emily Olvera, who was in charge of lights thought, “It was easy. All I had to do was press buttons and push levers. It was pretty fun.” When asked how it felt to be in the play, actress Allison Shilling said, “My two minutes of fame were awesome!” The play was humorous, scary, and suspenseful all in one. We are all anticipating the drama program's next play.
