Print Article

The cast and crew are surprised and confused at the possibility that Monica Welles’ death was not a suicide in Flathead High School Theatre’s production of “Rehearsal for Murder.” From left to right Karen (Kadence Johnson), Sally (Faith Cheff), Lloyd (Thomas Schultz), Alex (Daniel Edelen), David (Alan Taylor) and Leo (Sean Struble).

The Flathead High School Theatre Department presents the mystery “Rehearsal for Murder” today through Saturday, Oct. 24, Oct. 25 and 26, at 6:27 p.m. in the David M. Hashley Theatre at Flathead High School.

Admission is $7 for adults and $5 for students and senior citizens. Tickets are available at the FHS Main Office, Photo Video Plus and, if still available, at the door.

When actress Monica Welles, the beautiful leading lady and fiancee of successful playwright Alex Dennison, dies, everyone believes it was a suicide. But not Alex who sets out to snare her killer by writing a new play recounting the events of that fateful night ... and then calls all the suspects to rehearse the show. Clues emerge as they read through the play. Startling connections to the murder and possible motives begin to unfold. Tension reaches the boiling point as the script weaves deception and shock into every scene. The audience will be kept guessing until the unexpected climax.

“Rehearsal for Murder” was written by Emmy-winning 1970-1980s television-script veterans Richard Levinson and William Link, whose best known works include “Columbo” and “Murder, She Wrote.” Their 1982 made-for-TV movie, “Rehearsal for Murder,” starred Robert Preston and Lynn Redgrave, and the script was later adapted for the stage by D.D. Brooke.

The cast of “Rehearsal for Murder” includes Daniel Edelen, James Francis, Faith Cheff, Lydia Wood, Rylee Burkhart, Thomas Schultz, Emme Schow, Kadence Johnson, Alan Taylor, Sean Struble, Connor Adcox, Cassie Cattron, Carl Bell, Christopher Emerson and Michael Kelley.

Behind the scenes, Cahira McDowell, Shelbie Guckenberg, Rebekah Hopp, Rylee Houser, Kirya Henderson, Athena Wallace, Jade Dickerson, Matt Nairn, Natasha Gesker, Eranae McDowell, Kay Gibbs, Jessie Chadwick, Serena Keil, Bethany Nairn, Summer Palmer, Ashley Denizen, Madison Byrd, Seda Ramsey and Rylie Martin make up the lighting and sound crew.
