Take center stage with this skill-intensive performance classes! Students will refine acting skills through the process of auditioning, rehearsing, and performing in a full-length play. The production is directed by professional actors, directors, and choreographers straight off the Childsplay stage. The first two weeks of rehearsals are on our main campus and the last week is at the Tempe Center for the Arts. Final performances at the Tempe Center for the Arts at 11am and 2pm on Friday, June 16th.

About the Play:


This hilarious mystery play features zany characters and a surprise ending. When gung-ho fitness expert, Billie Body is mysteriously murdered during a power outage, all the guests of Come on Inn become suspects. Was it the cook’s lemonade that poisoned her, or did someone else have a hand in Body’s death? Who would have the audacity to commit murder under so many noses? Inspector Black, on the scene in search of the escaped convict, has his job cut out for him. As the winds howl, suspicions rage — from Garth the gardener (who weeds with an axe) to an inept doctor on holiday from malpractice suits to a hairdresser who constantly changes her appearance — everyone has a hidden motive to want Billie Body dead. After all, she does have abs “to die for”! Fill the theatre with storms of laughter and join us in the silly saga of No Body to Murder!


Produced with special arrangement with Pioneer Drama Service, Inc., Englewood, Colorado
