Arrowhead Drama’s cast and crew in the spring show did the final run throughs of the show Monday, May 2nd, 2022, through Wednesday, May 4th, 2022, before performing the show in front of an audience May 5th through 7th, 2022.


Allie Farris, a junior at Arrowhead, said, “I think we are ready for an audience. We have the show down.”


Tickets are $10 general admission and can be purchased using this link.


Cast and crew were called at 5:30 pm to pre-set scenery and get into costume. The doors opened to the audience at 6:30 pm with the show starting at 7:00 pm. The show ran about 90 minutes with a 15 minute intermission between acts. 


According to the audition instructions doc given to actors, the show is a cross between Nancy Drew and Scooby Doo with solving a mystery that includes chase sequences, physical comedy, and wacky characters. 


Trixie, the Teen Detective tells the story of Trixie Blue and her friends investigating Ghostly Gravestead Manor. The manor has been abandoned for years, but lights have been seen turning on and off the past few weeks. The trio finds out that a wacky fortune teller and her companions started living in the manor two days ago. During their investigation, more strange people keep arriving. It is up to Trixie to solve the mystery and figure out what everyone is doing in the same place. 


Parents of the cast and crew that saw the show Thursday night loved it and were laughing at parts of the show that actors had to adjust to while onstage.


Tia Salerno, a sophomore at Arrowhead, came to see the show Thursday and said, “The show was great. Everyone did a great job.” 


There is still a chance to come and see the show with performances Friday, May 6th, 2022 and Saturday, May 7th, 2022 at seven pm.
