Eureka High School is pleased to announce their presentation of The Purrfect Crime, a play by Todd Wallinger, on Friday, May 6, in the Eureka School gym. The matinee is to be held at 1:30 p.m. with the evening show to follow at 7:00 p.m.
The play synopsis from Pioneer Drama Service sums up the plot of the play: “Poor ‘Big Bob’ Little. When this cantankerous, old rancher dies, nobody mourns — not his eldest child, Cecilia, a hard-driving, money-hungry businesswoman; not middle child, Annie, a holistic, dizzy lass hoping to turn the ranch into a bovine meditation retreat; and not even youngest child, Little Bob, a lovable loser obsessed with the percussive arts. That’s why it’s no surprise when Bob leaves his entire $36 million fortune to his cat, Wiggles. Just what is a kitty to do with that much money? Enter a pair of purr-suasive cons who claim to be the world’s foremost pet psychics. Not to let the cat out of the bag, but it’s really an elaborate ruse to steal the kitty’s diamond-studded toys. But when the crooked cat burglars learn that Wiggles needs a will of her own, they hatch a plan to have it all — The Purrfect Crime! Can the family work together to stop a cat-astrophe? Or will they just end up fighting like cats and dogs? The Purrfect Crime is a claw-some blend of hiss-terical humor and cat-scratching action. Let the fur fly!”
The cast includes Alexis Serr, Carissa Schwingler, Erica Ingerson, Devan Brockel, Makenah Opp, Cooper Aman, Katelyn Englehart, Sydney Bertsch, Makaylah Jones, and Joshua Fargher. Stage crew consists of Marcus Popowski, Chance Mehlhaff, Chris Marshalek, and Kendall Bennett. The production is directed by Rosa Jundt.
