While the Lights Were Out

By Jack Sharky

Directed by Marsha Heuer

A Thunderstorm! The lights go out . . .an agonized voice shouts . . . a pistol shot! The lights come up and a blonde stands over a dead man holding a bloody dagger! The detective examines the body and announces "He's been strangled!”

This is just the opening of one of the most astounding and hilarious murder mysteries ever staged. Every clue is a lulu and the plot twists furiously. The final solution involves the most bizarre motive ever conceived! The delightful evening of mayhem gallops madly about the stage and leaves audience breathless with surprise and laughter. The mystery is top notch, the characters marvelous and the comedy explosive.

Sun Prairie High School’s “While the Lights Were Out” promises to take everyone on a mysterious, adventurous evening of pure humor, tricky love triangles, and fun, as the audience can try to solve the mystery along with the detectives.
