CAST’s 6th-12th graders present A Family Reunion to Die For, a murder mystery comedy with audience interaction. It’s time for the Knotting Family Reunion, and newlywed Christine Franklin is eager to show off her husband Freddie to the family she hasn’t seen in years. The joyful reunion quickly turns sour when there’s a murder. Complete with a hilarious chase scene, and a few surprising plot twists, this show is not to be missed!
Showtimes: Saturday, November 11, 7 p.m., and Sunday, November 12, 1 p.m. Simkins Hall.
