Rehearsal & performance of the musical “The Case of the Missing Paragraph”! Enrollment is limited - advance registration strongly encouraged Performances in Studio Theatre on May 18 & 19 at 2:30! The Story: It was a sweltering afternoon when she knocked on the door. She was looking for a detective. Someone to find her paragraph. It was missing. No, the dog had not eaten it. She’d come to the right place: The Expository Detective Agency. It was the beginning of a beautiful friendship. This hilarious spoof of the hard-boiled detective genre is tons of fun while teaching such composition topics as choosing a topic, research, essay structure and more! April Cochran will direct.
