WGMS/HS Presents ‘Ax of Murder’

Everyone’s heard of a haunted house. Probably even a haunted theater. But a haunted play? Could it be haunted by the spirit of a man who died recently at the theatre? No…it’s not possible! At least, that’s what theater director Bonnie Bagwell tries to convince the other members of the troupe as writer Colin Chambers hints at the trail of horror that has cursed his script, Ax of Murder. Unfortunately, curiosity gets the best of the actors and, despite Colin’s adamant warnings, they open the script and start reading the play. It soon becomes apparent the play is mirroring their theater and even the specific actors. “The play changes with each performance,” Colin intones, though he’s not taken seriously. But when a police sergeant shows up on cue stating he was called in on a murder, people begin to wonder. Wonder turns to fear when someone IS murdered onstage! And it seems as if no one could have done it. No one, that is, except perhaps a ghost

WG Live! .. Clean Comedy on Friday

Willow Glen Live! presents Clean Comedy
Friday, October 23, 7:00 pm.
Little Theater, Cottle at Malone

*Willow Glen Live!*, a new low-cost, family-friendly entertainment series, is bringing a great line-up of amateur comedians to the Little Theater next Friday:

  • Ivy Adams – Ivy is a senior at Willow Glen and actually sees life as a series of paintings and comedy as a way of life.
  • Olivia Dickerson – Olivia is a junior at Branham. Olivia looks at life with a filter, a comedy filter.
  • Charley Guptill – Charley is a senior at Willow Glen and finds plenty to laugh about in school, his teachers, and his fellow students.
  • Olivia LaMar – Olivia is a freshman at De Anza College. A recent graduate of Leigh High school, Olivia sometimes thinks she was just born to do stand-up. Or is it born to just stand-up?
  • Molly Malone – Molly finds her family about as funny as they come. Now she is looking for another one.
  • Matt Regan – Last seen on stage in “You’re a Good Man, Charley Brown,” Matt has also performed stand-up at Willow Glen High.
  • John M. Pisacane, DMD – John is a dentist here in Willow Glen and regularly gives his patents laughing gas to make his jokes funnier.

Please join us for lots of laughs the whole family can enjoy. This event is open to the entire Willow Glen community and all proceeds go directly to the WG Middle & High music program.

Tickets are $3 for students and $5 for adults.
