Bellport High School presents ‘The Game’s Afoot’ 25

The talented cast and crew of Ken Ludwig’s “The Game’s Afoot” drew a full house to Bellport High School’s Ebersole Auditorium on November 1st and 2nd.

Michael Marziliano as William Gillette and Emma Butler as Inspector Goring discussed the clues to a murder in “The Game’s Afoot.”

Under the direction of Susan Hartmann and producer Barbara Gallagher, the nine-member cast amused the audience with this witty whodunit murder mystery. At Christmastime in 1936, Broadway star William Gillette (Michael Marziliano), admired for playing Sherlock Holmes, invited cast members to his Connecticut castle for weekend revelry. When one of the guests, Daria Chase (AutumnMargaret Walthers), is found stabbed, Gillette took on the persona of his beloved character to track down the killer and to set Inspector Goring (Emma Butler) in the wrong direction. Unfortunately, everything that could go wrong does go wrong, as each of the guests, and “Holmes,” hide the clues and the body from the inspector.

Center, Michael Marziliano (William Gillete) and (right) Troy Sica (Felix Geisel) checked to see if AutumnMargaret Walthers (Daria Chase) is really dead in “The Game’s Afoot.”

The cast also included Jocelyn Marrero (Martha Gillette), Troy Sica (Felix Geisel), Keira Ballan (Madge Geisel), Aidan Gaynor (Simon Bright), Alexa Ferrara (Aggie Wheeler), and understudies Lexington Armann and Joseph Salerno. The success of the performances was also attributed to the nine-member crew, stage managers Juliana Lewkowski and Victoria Pennachio, Vivienne Love, James Gibney and Kieran Sawyer on lighting, Ryan Wilson and music director James Uzzi on sound, art chairperson Suzette Fandale on costumes, James Gibney on set construction, and Suzette Fandale and Barbara Gallagher on set design.

The South Country Central School District congratulates the students on their memorable performance.
