Dark, stormy … hilarious night
“It Was a Dark and Stormy Night” is taking over the Oak Ridge High School theater beginning March 16 and you can feel the excitement brewing from the entire cast.
Characterized by the Oak Ridge drama teacher and director Catherine Cook as being “a tip of the hat to the 1940s,” the humorous, lighthearted murder mystery written by Craig Sodaro is fun for the entire family.
This radio play within a play takes place in a mansion owned by the reclusive and not very well liked mystery writer Sam Slaughter, played by Kaden Call. This is also the recording studio for Sam’s popular radio show, “It Was a Dark and Stormy Night,” and where the mystery begins.
Slaughter is kidnapped and a woman’s body falls out of nowhere. With a string of suspects, Det. Samson, played by Drake Riddiough, has his work cut out for him. But when the detective is apparently murdered these stranded characters are left completely on their own. Between the ditzy actress, the dramatic diva and the country bumpkins, it may take one of Sam’s old radio scripts to reveal the real killer.
“Hilarious,” is how Maxwell Walker, who plays Fielding, Sam’s butler, describes the production.
