Dorchester Jr. High Presents 'Ha-Ha House' This Thursday

Prepared to be entertained.

The Dorchester Junior High will present its fall play this Thursday, Oct. 23, at 7 p.m. at the school.

Come watch the Longhorn students in "Ha-Ha House" -- which takes the scary fun of a haunted house and transforms it into a play.

Here's a sneak preview of the play:  Brewster Havershome goes bananas when his wife dies and he's hauled off to the loony bin (Can we say that in this politically correct world?) as he laughs insanely.  Authorities say he killed her himself.  So naturally, four teenage girls are petrified when they stumble into the "Ha-Ha House" in search of a phone (We don't know why none of them had a smart phone in 2014, but we'll play along...).

When the more-than-creepy butler introduces them to the cook, who is dismembering something -- or possibly someone -- for dinner, a comedy-of-terror takes hold.  A floating head, a lost treasure and two young men to the rescue!  

The suspense kicks into high gear when Brewster Havershome escapes from the asylum, looking for his dead wife and his long lost treasure and wielding a cleaver.

Come be part of the fun Thursday evening!

  1. I am excited to see the acting that the kids put into this play as they are just starting out their days in drama. They should have some of their nervousness relieved after practicing for the elementary last Wed. Come for a good show and a fall treat at 7 p.m. Thursday!
