NDA Presents: The Farndale Avenue Housing Estate Townswomen’s Guild Dramatic Society Murder Mystery

NDA Presents: The Farndale Avenue Housing Estate Townswomen’s Guild Dramatic Society Murder Mystery (A comedy of errors by David McGillvray & Walter Zerlin Jr.)
Presented live from the Performing Arts Center on the campus of NDA
Friday, May 3, 2019 7:00 PM
Saturday, May 4, 2019 7:00 PM
Sunday, May 5, 2019 2:00 PM

Every drama group has experienced the horrors of what can go wrong on opening night, and the ladies of the F.A.H.E.T.G. Dramatic Society are no different, with the possible exception that almost everything that could happen does! The scenery collapses, cues are missed, lines forgotten, and the sound effects take on a strange note at times, as the ladies present their ambitious evening’s entertainment with the cunning whodunit, “Murder At Checkmate Manor.” And just in case the audience should get bored there’s a Film and Fashion Show and Murder Mystery Quiz, complete with a Prize! The crunch comes in the denouement when the “murderer”, about to be revealed, has to rush home to bandage up an injured daughter. But Mrs. Reece, doyenne of the group, rises above the slings and arrows of outrageous dramatics to save the situation and provide the final inventive twist.

HELLO DOLLY! Callback list!

As NDA prepares for a cast list by Friday evening we would like to announce that boys may still audition for ensemble roles!
This is a smaller callback list than usual because so many parts call for a singing-dancing combo.  Call backs will start after school TONIGHT! –as soon as people can safely get there. Meet in the choir room -that is where you had your singing audition. We are never sure when these auditions will end, but we are hoping by 6:30 latest.  Some people may be allowed to leave earlier! Please wear clothes you can comfortably move and sing in that are appropriate for the venue.  Bring water–we will have some snacks.
Call-Back List in alphabetical order:
Maria Bier, Elise Brown, Peyton Burnor, Christian Eid,  Ava George, Anna Haudrich, TJ Haselman,Gabriel Hunyor, Patrick Kerrigan, Chloe Knapp, Sarah Korducki, Evan LaBeau, Renee Marting, Ada Ogbonna, Laney Poitinger, Mitchell Wiley
