March 15 and 16 the Riversprings Theatre Troupe performed the Soderman/Ferguson play, “Next Victim, Please” directed by Nancy Commander and Mina Sutton.
Desmond Maxwell played the part of Colonel Maxwell Murdock (a rich, elderly man) who has called his family together to discuss his will. It is soon evident that each and every member of the family is extremely greedy and likes money more than family! The play twists and turns, and in this hilarious comedy, as family members plan and execute their plots to “off” their siblings, aunts and uncles, they find themselves the victims!
Hannah Hart and Cori Chaganis were wonderful in their roles as the Colonel’s sisters, while Elijah Mullens, as the brother-in-law added a quiet humor to his role. Ashton Boddye, Jenna Francks, Sheleen Burton and Jason Paris were excellent in their roles as the Colonel’s conniving off-spring and Yesenia Reyes was perfect in her role as the humble, yet greedy daughter-in-law.
Playing the parts of the funny grandchildren were Emily Lawrence and Kaylee Meyers. Jada Walker, the bumbling detective, practically stole the show with her ad-libbed one-liners!! Butler Higgins and Fifi the maid, played by Nic Samlal and Paige Pearson, were superior in their challenging roles. Rounding out the cast were Alyssa Cacciatore and Sarah Stephens as the maids and Ian Potter on lights and sound!
We would like to thank our parents for all of their support. A special thanks to the Samlal family for running the concession. Special thanks go to Wakulla High School students Emily Davis, Sami Chaganis and Samantha Tomlinson for their help at practices. Huge thanks to Mr. Tully, Mrs. Hudson, Mr. Rossow, Mr. Williams and Coach Smith for their help.
As always, we would like to thank Mr. Walker, Ms. Baggett, Mr. Miller and the School Board for their support. Special Thanks to Wakulla.com, The Wakulla News and Centennial Bank for their advertising. And last, but definitely not least, a grand thank you to the community for their continued support of the Arts!!
