Murder in the heir at Upper School

Upper School drama students entertained and interacted with the audience at the spring play, Murder's in the Heir, performing a concluding act only after polling the crowd on its preference for the evening's villain. The lively show Feb. 21-22 at the Lewis Family Auditorium featured new faces from the senior and freshmen classes and many familiar names from the drama program under director Sam Shapiro.
There wasn't a minor role in the production, which included amusing repartee from the 14 cast members interspersed with periodic visits to the stage from hilarious narrator Ilija Wan-Simm '19. The cast featured Juan Roca-Paisley ’19, Isabella Peña ’19, Quinn Harrellson ’19, Rachel Seipp ’19, Liam de Araujo ’21, Noah Delisma ’22, Vanessa Gonzalez ’19, Celeste Viana ’22, Zoe Holtzman ’22, Matthew Rocha ’19, Viviana Vela ’21, Viviana Freyer ’20, Abby Aldrich ’20 and Henry Schermerhorn ’19.
