On Thursday, Oct. 19, Ms. Darby and Ms. Flipper took their freshman classes to Derby Dinner Playhouse to see A Murder is Announced by Agatha Christie. The field trip was part of a larger reading unit on detective fiction. Ms. Darby says that, “detective fiction is high interest for all students. It keeps them engaged and continually turning the pages because they have to know who did it.” It is one of the many highlights from the semester.
While at the theater, students had the opportunity to play detective alongside Christie’s infamous fictional detective, Miss Marple. In this play, they had to solve not just one murder, but two. During the intermission, Ms. Darby asked many of the freshmen if they believed they had put the clues together correctly and determined the killer. Many students pointed the finger at Mitzi. Everyone got quite a surprise when the murderer was announced and apprehended by Miss Marple and Inspector Craddock.
After the performance, students had lunch at Bearno’s by the Bridge. The group also traveled over to the Big Four Bridge for a nice stroll. The weather was perfect! Many students expressed what a fantastic day they had.
