GLENVILLE, WV – Students in Glenville State College’s theater program will be performing ‘Secondary Cause of Death’ as their first full show of the spring 2018 semester. The performance will run for two evenings, Thursday, February 22 and Friday, February 23, and begins at 7:00 p.m.

‘Secondary Cause of Death,’ is a murder mystery parody where the audience can imagine the game of Clue brought to life with cases of mistaken identity, accidental murders, explosions, a Nazi invasion, and more. Featured in the play is Colonel Charles Craddock who, despite his large house and assumed wealth, is in need of extra income. For additional cash the Colonel operates a bed and breakfast that also hosts murder mysteries out of his home. Craddock hires the sister of a famed amateur sleuth to entertain his diverse group of guests. Laughter and puzzling twists await audiences of this performance.

Administration Building Auditorium 'Secondary Cause of Death' will be performed in the Heflin Administration Building Auditorium February 22 and 23 at 7:00 p.m.

The cast includes Joshua Smith as Count Puchlik, Chase Rakes as Colonel Charles Craddock, Shiann Smith as Nurse Ann Parsley, Catherine Chambers as Lady Isadora Pollock, Heather Salsbury as Inspector Pratt, Angie Burgess as Martha Armstrong, Victoria Guillory as Lily Tuthill, Brittany Benson as Captain Henrietta, and Katie Miller as Cynthia Maple.

The play will be presented in the President’s Auditorium in the Heflin Administration Building. Admission is free for GSC students with a valid ID and $3.00 for general admission. The play is rated PG-13 for some suggestive dialog.
