HANNIBAL – The Hannibal High School Purple Gallery Drama Club is excited to share “Strange Happenings” in a couple of upcoming March performances.
Students will bring playwright Robert Frankel’s work to life through a suspenseful, musical journey with unique scenes as The Stargazer guides the audience through a small-town murder investigation, an interesting science project, a double-date adventure to a creepy house and a dream sequence.
Attendees will have to guess how the mystery unwinds and twists unfold.
Each drama club member worked together to collectively decide which script they would best like to work with.
They chose “Strange Happenings” and got right to work with the production process.
“Strange Happenings” is produced by special arrangement with Pioneer Drama Service Inc., Englewood, Colo.
The show is directed by teachers Denise Ellis and Kelly Smith.
