“Community theatre brings together past, present and future NFCC students with our community friends to create an entertaining evening,” said Bell. “Our cast and crew come from NFCC’s six-county service area, so drop by for the show March 4 or 5 and help support your local student and community actors. It’s going to be a fun show.”
The play begins at a Fleur Estates Neighborhood Association meeting; the scene of several uproars. Lou Braunhorst, friendly neighbor and conspiracy theorist, has information that the quiet streets of the neighborhood will soon be sold and re-zoned for commercial development. He also believes that Black Helicopters are buzzing his house and transmitting signals through his satellite dish that put a “liberal spin” on all his television programs. But Lou’s concerns do have validity – the rezoning, not the helicopters. There is a ‘secret’ real estate scheme to institute “Eminent Domain” over the subdivision to make way for a Family Fun Pizza Parlor and a Strip Mall. But Board President George Holmes is having problems with his hearing aid and his young lovely wife Fannie Mae wants the whole “rezoning” matter ruled out of order and dropped. Councilman Ratcliff who knows more about the neighborhood ‘take-over’ than he wishes to reveal, can’t stay around because he is participating as an Elvis Impersonator at Elvis-O-Rama and must leave. But before Elvis can leave the building, he turns up dead. Was it foul play or the ultimate Elvis impersonation? Special Secret Agent McManshon is quick to arrive and conduct an investigation. It seems Secret Agent McManshon knows a lot about this plot of murder, but unfortunately, it’s a secret. For now…
Help solve the mystery March 4-5 while enjoying an evening of community theatre at Van H. Priest Auditorium. Tickets are on sale now. For more information, contact Denise Bell at (850) 973-9481 or email@example.com.
