SLHS drama to host special one-night performance

The San Luis High School Drama Department is hosting a special one-night performance of “Murd-Arr! Pirates of the Salty Dog!” with special guests, the On-Deck Players.

The On-Deck Players is a community theatre troupe made up of various local professionals who love the art of theatre and comedy. SLHS Drama teacher Timothy Ames is a member of the ensemble.

“I wanted to bring my personal theatre troupe here to San Luis High School to lead by example,” Ames said. “I ask my students to challenge themselves every day by stepping out and performing in front of their peers. So, that is what I am doing Saturday night.”

“Murd-Arr! Pirates of the Salty Dog!” is a fun play with sword fights, romance and mystery.  Prizes will be drawn for those in the audience who can figure out who the murderer is.

The play will be presented in the SLHS cafeteria at 6 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 7. Tickets are $7 at the door and all proceeds go to the SLHS Drama Club.
