Thespian Troupe 918 presents “Salem’s Daughters”
Thespian Troupe 918 will present “Salem’s Daughters” on Nov. 6 & 7, at 7pm and on Nov. 8 at 1:00 pm in the MHS Auditorium. Tickets are $5.00.
This gripping drama opens in 1691, where Sarah Brooks, who has been tried as a witch, is sentenced to hang, cursing those who would disturb her rest. Jumping to the 1950s: six high school seniors have a party at Heather’s house, which is built on the hill where the condemned witches were buried. Heather goads the others into inviting a new girl, Sarah, to their party. Sarah is the perfect example of the ’trash’ Heather thinks is moving in and ruining the town. Heather insists that Sarah drink a glass of ’Initiation Punch,’ and when Sarah collapses and dies, the joke suddenly stops. To protect their post-graduation dreams, the others decide to throw Sarah’s body down the backyard well and vow never to tell anyone what happened. Eight years later, the group must once again come together. Construction near the well has revealed...nothing. A police detective has told Heather that a woman has been seen on her property. Is it Sarah?
