'How The Other Half Dies,' is free at NWHS this weekend

Niagara Gazette — A comedy about a man’s misguided attempts to join a country club will be performed three times for free this weekend by students of the Niagara-Wheatfield School District.

”We decided to do a free show to give the community and all of Niagara County and Erie County the opportunity to see a show,” said Andrea Letcher, a middle school Spanish teacher one of the two co-directors. The other director is Tammy Dobe, an English teacher at the high school.  

”We wanted to give the opportunity to everyone, young and old to see a beautiful comedy,” she said, “and share the the play with those who’ve never been to a show.”

The show, called “How the Other Half Dies,” is a play about a man holding a dinner party in an effort to impress his guests and get himself a membership in a posh country club. His efforts are hampered by the dead body found in his new car. 

The play, written by Eddie McPherson, is brought to life by 26 students from the Niagara-Wheatfield School District, including three leads: Simon, played by Andrew Canada, a junior at the high school; Officer Knight played by Andrew Zuccari, also and junior; and Officer Newbie, played by Scott Jarvis. 

The family friendly and audience interactive play will be performed at 7 p.m. today, Friday and Saturday at the Niagara-Wheatfield High School auditorium. All are welcome.
