A Mystery Murdered           

By Karl Garner. This play-within-a-play opens with the butler, holding a gun, standing over the body of Steve Walters.  The butler, John, assures us that things are not what they seem and that this is not a simple case of “the butler did it.”  John introduces us to the other suspects:  Steve’s business partner, his ex-fiancée, his current fiancée, and her friend.  But that’s when the play falls apart, for the actors are as jealous, petty, and conceited as the characters they play.  Class culminates in a live Zoom performance for friends, family and mystery buffs!  Instructo Miranda Guettlein.

Mirror, Mirror                     

By Brian D. Taylor. The Evil Queen wishes to be fairest of them all.  But when her Magic Mirror informs her that it is Snow White who is most fair, the queen is livid!  When asked how to find the princess, her mirror mentions that Snow White has run away.  The Evil Queen summons great magic in hopes of finding Snow White — she can now to look through all mirrors throughout the kingdom.  But there’s a catch…  the magic also allows everyone else’s mirrors to show them what they most wish to see. While the Evil Queen is hunting down Snow White, who’s living with the seven dwarves, Beauty sees the Beast who has taken her father prisoner and Cinderella connects with her Fairy Godmother so she can dance at the ball.  Class culminates in a live Zoom performance for family, friends and fairy tale fans!  Instructor Kimberly Jongejan.
