BANGOR — A local group of amateur actors will put on a murder-mystery play for the community when John Bapst Memorial High School presents a back-stage comedy, “Acting Can Be Murder,” at 7 p.m. Friday and Saturday, Nov. 7-8, at 100 Broadway.

Understudy Dolores Gordon, played by junior Ana Gallant, has murdered the lead of the play, Guinevere Black, played by junior Heather Allen — and stuck her body in the trunk at center stage.

Now, Dolores is being haunted by Guinevere. The rest of the cast has no idea as to why Guinevere has “left town,” and are struggling to work with the worst understudy Bapst on Broadway has ever seen.

Amidst the humor and comedic antics of the cast, Dolores goes mad, and to make matters worse, the body of Guinevere has disappeared!

Join in a wonderful evening of fun and suspense at 7 p.m. Friday and Saturday, Nov. 7-8, in the John Bapst auditorium.

Tickets are $3 and are on sale 7:30 a.m.-1:45 p.m. weekdays in the fine arts office at the school. Tickets also will be available at the door.
