Editor’s note: The News was informed Tuesday at presstime that one of “Drop Dead, Juliet’s’’ principal players had been injured and that the play could possibly be rescheduled. Please contact McConnellsburg High School for further information.

McConnellsburg High School will present the hilarious, one-act comedy “Drop Dead, Juliet!” Friday, September 24, at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday afternoon, September 26, at 2:00 p.m. in the Mc- Connellsburg High School Auditorium.

Juliet has had enough! “What kind of lame-o plot twist is me waking up three seconds after he dies?” she asks Shakespeare. Enough with the poison, enough with the the stabbing and especially enough with the dying. She wants a new story and she wants it now. More parts for girls! More romance! Less death! Romeo and Juliet will never be the same – or will it? Not everyone’s so keen on the changes. And why is Romeo sneaking off with Rosaline?

For more information, call 717-485-3195.
