As a result of the rain earlier this week resulting in standing water in many areas, along with the forecast for additional rain, the decision has been made to move the Viking Walk at Avoca West and Marie Murphy Schools from Friday, May 16 to Monday, May 19.
The Marie Murphy Spring Play will take place on Friday, April 25 @ 7:30 pm and again on Saturday, April 26 @ 7:30 pm. Admission is free and features a double feature!
Our first play is Homework Eats Dog by Alan Haehnel, where a sadistic science teacher waits in eager anticipation of the excuses his students deliver on why they need an extension on their science projects. Will any student succeed in delivering an excuse that results in an extension? Come and find out!
The second play of the evening is reflective of pop culture’s infatuation with zombies. 10 Ways to Survive the Zombie Apocalypse by Don Zolidis provides a hilarious plethora of strategies to aid you in avoiding the clutches of the walking dead!
One is just not enough this year!
For the first time ever, Marie Murphy will be doing 2 one-act plays back-to-back on each performance night! That’s twice the laughs and twice the fun!
The two very funny plays will be:
“10 Ways to Survive the Zombie Apocalypse,” by Don Zolidis
“Homework Eats Dog and Other Woeful Tales,” by Alan Haehnel
There will be plenty of parts for everyone who is interested. Open auditions will be held on Wednesday, February 19th and Thursday, February 20th for any Marie Murphy student who is interested in participating. A callback audition for those required to attend will be held on Friday, February 21st.
