EDWARDS, Colorado – The Battle Mountain High School Players present the madcap comedy-murder-mystery “Reserve Two For Murder” Thursday at 7:30 p.m. at the BMHS Center for the Performing Arts. Shows are set for Saturday at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday at 2 p.m. as well.

This show opens in a cheesy small New York theater where blackouts, bodies and suspects abound.

“The flow of the play is supposed to be frenetic. Since the action takes place all over the theater, the viewers won’t know where to look next,” said Director Suzanne Foster.

Stage veterans Jake Dutmer (Lee), Jamie Overcash (Kennedy), Susanna DeChant (Mrs.Thruston-Allen), Remsen Allard (Dr. Edwards), Jillian Kiss (Naomi Edwards) and Bailey Garton (Sally Lynch) anchor the cast while newcomers Woody Brook (William Russell) and Jazz Sheffer (Eloise) provide fresh faces to the stage.

While the script originally called for 15 actors, Foster and Assistant Director Cooter Overcash believe ‘the more the merrier.’ They added the Irish Police Squad, under the supervision of Officer Schultz (Raliegh Addington), usherettes who will be instrumental at the beginning and the ends of acts and the “Wicked Bad Stage Hands,” who will provide their own brand of humor during set changes and, well, whenever they are on stage.

Tickets can be reserved by calling 970-569-5321. Thursday’s Opening Night dinner will run from 6 to 7:15 p.m. and will feature ham, turkey, beef and all the accompaniments. Cost for dinner and a show tickets are $20/adults; $15/senior citizens and students; $10/under age 11.

On Saturday, a silent auction benefiting the speech and theater departments will run from 6:35 to the curtain and during the intermissions. Tickets for the show only can also be reserved or purchased at the door for $10/adults; $5/senior citizens and students; $3/under age 11.
