Middle/High School Winter Play to Take Stage
February 3-5, 2023
This middle school/high school winter production will take place at the Curtain Call Studio (2114 N. Armstrong Kokomo, IN). Seating is limited in the studio and only 72 tickets will be availble for each show. Additional performances may be added if all three current performances sell out.
About the Show/Show Synopsis:
During a surprise storm, Captain Savage Raines goes missing at sea. The wreckage of the Half Shell is found, but with no sign of the commercial fisherman, Sheriff Sandy Shoals assumes Captain Raines is dead. That wouldn’t be a surprise considering what a hateful codger he was. After all, who else would name his twin daughters Misery and Calamity?!
The sheriff finds the incident especially curious since the shipwreck was just a day after Savage announced his retirement and revealed plans to divvy up Peg Legg Seafoods. And since those business plans minimized his wife Peggy’s role in the company and largely cut out the rest of the family with the exception of his bootlicking twin daughters, everyone had a motive for sabotage.
Reeling in audience members to help sift through the evidence, Sheriff Shoals casts a wide net to try to catch the guilty party.
This production is funded in part by the Community Foundation of Howard County.
THE STORY: Andrew Makepeace Ladd III and Melissa Gardner, both born to wealth and position, are childhood friends whose lifelong correspondence begins with birthday party thank-you notes and summer camp postcards. Romantically attached, they continue to exchange letters through the boarding school and college years—where Andy goes on to excel at Yale and law school, while Melissa flunks out of a series of “good schools.” While Andy is off at war Melissa marries, but her attachment to Andy remains strong and she continues to keep in touch as he marries, becomes a successful attorney, gets involved in politics and, eventually, is elected to the U.S. Senate. Meanwhile, her marriage in tatters, Melissa dabbles in art and gigolos, drinks more than she should, and becomes estranged from her children. Eventually she and Andy do become involved in a brief affair, but it is really too late for both of them. However Andy’s last letter, written to her mother after Melissa’s untimely death, makes it eloquently clear how much they really meant, and gave to, each other over the years—physically apart, perhaps, but spiritually as close as only true lovers can be.
