The eighth grade play, Murdered!, a murder-mystery-comedy written and directed by Elisa Sidoli, delighted audiences this week with two performances on Thursday and Friday in the Lowell Center.

Matt Capone was hilarious as the hapless butler who is endlessly annoying to his wealthy employers and comes under investigation by three incompetent inspectors, aptly named Nin, Com, and Poops, played by Molly King, Grace Kosowsky, and Charlotte Epker.

The eighth graders will surely be getting some fan mail from their little Kindergarten buddies who had front-row seats for the Friday performance.
