CLOVERDALE -- The Cloverdale High School Drama Club will present the comedy "That's the Spirit" by Tim Kelly on Friday, Feb. 8 and Saturday, Feb. 9.

Curtain time is 7:30 p.m. with doors opening at 6:30. The show will take place in the school's cafetorium.

"That's the Spirit" features escapist fun, a spooky puzzle and an entertaining whodunit.

Psychic Jenny Davenport (Beka Jordan) is murdered at a lodge that once belonged to The Great Marvel, a famed "Illusionist." His niece, Irene Lockwood (Ariel Immel) appears to help find the murderer and take care of the final business with the estate.

Who should turn up as the investigator but another dingy psychic, Claire Voyant (Krymson Noel), who solicits the help of a bunch of weirdos: Bella Donna (Alycia Cooper) and her nasty ventriloquist dummy, Chester, Anne Boleyn (Rachel Short), who has a terrible fear of axes and Ernst Slater (Mitchell Stacy), the man with the X-ray eyes.

Toss in some bumbling police, Bradanne Toney as Lt. Prindle and detective Bud Frazer (Robert St. John), a crazed hermit, Juan (Dustin Boothby), a walking lampshade and a ham actor, Wayne Hopkins (Taulbee Jackson).

Other cast members include Haylen Eccles, Clare Plamondon and Ethan Williamson.

Student director for the production is Miranda Tate. Running lights will be Derek Weaver. The Drama Club is under the direction of Brad Sandy.

Admission to this year's show is $5 for adults and $3 for students and senior citizens.
