After several changes to the schedule, the CSHS Drama Department performed the annual fall play Nov. 15-17. Titled “Disorder in the Court,” the play outlined a murder mystery that took place as a court case. 

“[Acting is] really fun, and you get to be someone you’re not,” junior Molly Bender said.

This play brought laughter and audience participation through its different elements. During the play, candy was thrown out to the audience, the cast members performed the Macarena, and one of the characters bust out a guitar and invited the audience to sing along to a parody to the children’s song “BINGO.” The short, one-act play ends with a plot twist.

“It was interesting to say the least,” sophomore Allyson Lange said. “It’s so hard not to laugh when little kids are laughing.”

The first performance of the play was the matinee on Nov. 15 at 9 a.m. There was more audience participation as the elementary and middle school students were the only ones who attended, and the younger kids answered all the rhetorical questions and shouted out suggestions.

“I liked having the audience involved more than normal,” senior Jaden Herndon said.

The two public performances were originally scheduled for Nov. 15 at 7 p.m., and Nov. 16 at 8 p.m. Due to a sectional football game, however, the evening show time for Friday was changed to Nov. 17 at 2 p.m. Despite these changes, the audience turnout was approximately the same.
