The team has been performing the play, “The  Blue and the Grey” by RS Paulette, and centers around Charlie who is surrounded by ghosts including the ghost of an estranged father who leaves her an antique musket and the ghost of a classmate’s sister who cautions Charlie, that the Grey will hear you, the ghosts of lost Confederate soldiers ambushed following the first battle of Fredericksburg, 1862.

Charlie must confront both the living and the dead, but will she make the right choice and what brings her to the center of a barely frozen lake with the musket and her ghosts?

The play is directed by coach Madlain Vander and assisted by Tom Flaherty. Light design and operator is Lycus Flaherty.
