SHOW & CONCERT SCHEDULE OF EVENTS

SEPTEMBER 26 - 29  The Bobcat Players present Red Herring.  A noir comedy that begins with a murder in Boston Harbor and ventures to Joe McCarthy's home in middle America and to the Southwest deserts where the nuclear bomb is being tested, this show has it all.  It's a love story, a nostalgic look at American in the early 1950s, a murder mystery and most of all a comedy of epic proportions.  Meet hard-nosed New England detectives, disgruntled FBI agents, naive Midwestern maidens and Soviet spies who all have one thing in common:  a desperate need for love and commitment in a crazy, Communist ridden world.  Show times are 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Friday and Saturday and 3:00 p.m. on Sunday in the Ed Schaughency Theater in the Beaver Area Middle-High School.
