Last Thursday, I got to attend Parkside’s fall play, Cooking Can be Murder, and I had an awesome time. The play is a very cheesy comedy but also has a murder mystery element. With accurately named characters like Paige Turner, the lady who runs the library, who loved to interact with the audience. It is one of those plays that is self aware that it is a play and breaks the forth wall constantly; which is my kind of play.

I loved that and how lighthearted it was. When you go to see a play you want a nice escape from reality and a lot of dramatic plays do not really do that. With this play you got to forget about everything and just laugh for two hours. Even during intermission, Ella Mentry, a girl who wasn’t the brightest and played by senior Colleen Simpkins ran around hiding from Detective Biddle, portrayed by senior Dustin Marvel, and asking for directions to the nearest waffle house.

Logan Stuchlik, a Salisbury University Freshman who was in the Drama Honor Society during his time here at Parkside high school, said the play was “Hilarious from Start to Finish.” He enjoyed getting to see some of his friends up their but said “It’s weird being on this side of the stage”

I think every in the play including the actors, the stage crew, the light crew, and of coarse the amazing Director, Ms. Pruitt. I can not wait to see what they all do for the spring play and I will definitely be attending it.

You should too, every play I have attended in my four years at Parkside have been well worth the three dollars for student tickets.
