Spring is around the corner! But we all know that the Fargo-Moorhead area is still cold from severe wind and rain which means we should stay inside for awhile. Fortunately, we do not have to stay home because of what Sheyenne High School Theatre has planned for the month of April.
There will be 3 performances including “Reeling” at Sheyenne High School on April 1, “Murder at Eight, Dead by Nine” at Santa Lucia Restaurant on April 7-10, and a revival of “The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee” at Sheyenne High School on April 21 and 23. “Reeling” will be set up as part of the North Dakota One-Act Play Competition while “Murder at Eight, Dead by Nine” and “Spelling Bee” will be serving as fundraisers to perform in the August 2017 Edinburgh, Scotland Fringe Festival.
“Reeling” is an evening showcase of Sheyenne High School’s entry to the North Dakota Class A One-Act Play Competition. The performances consist of individual event selections in solo musical theatre, duet musical theatre, group musical theatre, monologue, and duo acting.
The story of “Reeling” follows a brave protagonist who heads to the big city to make something of himself, and he ends up with an impossibly happy ending while overcoming his misfortunes.
“Reeling” is a theatrical honor to the silent movie era, endurance of the human spirit and the power of art. The performances starts at 7:30 pm and goes until 9 pm. All tickets will be $5 and general admission is available at Sheyenne High School.
“Murder at Eight, Dead by Nine” is about solving a mysterious death as a comedy play. In a banquet room, one guest of honor falls face-first into her plate, other guests witness the murder. For your information, the murdered guest is hated by all and even her family -- and now they all claim to be innocent in the banquet room. Inspector Bungles is there to help solving the mysterious whodunit.
Seating starts at 6:30pm and the show will begin at 7pm. All tickets are $25, including salad, pasta buffet, dessert, and drinks. Reservations are available online at www.westfargotheatre.com.
Finally, Sheyenne High School Theatre revives “The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee” after a successful run and a mini tour around the state this fall and winter by William Finn and Rachel Sheinkin. This Tony Award-winning musical will have three performances at Sheyenne.
There are ten spellers in the story that enter the bee, but only one speller can leave. The losers get a juice box, a hug, and the satisfaction of making the effort, but the characters hope not to hear the bell ring, indicating a spelling mistake. Tickets are available at the door beginning an hour before the performance. General admission is $12 for adults and $10 for students.
