CJ Performing Arts Presents: "A Murder is Announced"

Students within the CJ performing arts community are buzzing with excitement for the showing of their mysterious play, A Murder is Announced, which takes the stage November 16-18. The play is about a murder that hasn’t taken place yet, but invitations to it as a “party” have been sent. When the murder truly happens, it’s up to the guests to figure out the murderer!

Chiamaka Ejinaka ‘21 is a production assistant of the play.

“It looks exciting! I know the actors have been working hard to pull it together, and there are some really show stealing moments in the show that I know the audience will love. I'm pretty excited for everyone to see all the hard work that's been happening behind the scenes leading up to opening night.”

Chloe Proffitt ‘21 is one of the main characters in the production.

“I've been in performing arts for both years of my high school career so far and loved every second of it. I've been in everything from marching band to a cappella to the theatre. I have especially loved being in this year's fall play because it's such a fun and thrilling story — you can't help but get wrapped up in it.”

During the production’s intermission, there will be an “intermystery,” a puzzling enigma haunting the halls.

Show times are November 16 and 17 at 7 p.m., and November 18 at 2 p.m. Tickets are $8 for adults and $5 for students.
