Middle school stages play
SUMMIT COUNTY – If Queen Toot can be raised from the dead, she will rule the world.
In the middle school’s latest play, “Evil Doings at Queen Toot’s Tomb,” an expedition travels to Egypt to open Queen Toot’s tomb. Unbeknownst to the group, Allura, a women among the group, is there to raise the queen from the dead to rule the world.
In the comedy, Allura tries to kidnap another woman on the expedition (because the queen’s spirit needs a live body to possess) without raising the suspicion of those on the expedition.
Craig Sodaro, Summit Middle School English and drama teacher, is directing the play – featuring a cast of 19 seventh- and eighth-graders – which runs this week.
Performances will be at 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday at Summit Middle School. Tickets are $4 for adults and $3 for children and students and will be sold at the door.
