Beyer High School Drama is performing Done to Death. The play follows a team of five renowned but “washed up” mystery writers, assembled to reinvent themselves by writing a script for a new TV show. Each writer encompasses their own type of writing style but what they all have in common is their habit of conjuring cliché stories that have been “done to death.” The show will be performed in the Beyer High Little Theater.

ticket prices are $5 students/children and $6 general audience. All seating is general
