Senior Class Raises Over $6,000 at Mystery Dinner Theater

April 6, 2011

mdtOn April 2-3, Christendom College's senior class presented a mystery dinner theater production,Hi-Jinks on the High Seas. Directed by senior Catherine Briggs, the performance was filled with the great humor and fun typical of this annual event. A fundraiser for the Senior Class Gift, the event drew large crowds at each performance and raised over $6,000.

Christendom's dramatic and comedic talent was out in full force. Characters filled the stage with color, including sheikhs, pirates, hillbillies, Frenchmen, and more.

"It was an awesome experience," said senior Troy Spring who performed in the play. "It was really well organized and professional. It took a lot of hard work and energy, but it was really rewarding. The people that came were really entertained."

mdtThe senior class hopes to raise $8,000 to replace the scoreboard in the gym, which broke at the end of the basketball season this year.

"It needs to be replaced before the fall semester," Senior Joe Townsend said. "It's a gesture of thanks for the wonderful education we have received at Christendom College and this event gets us really close to our goal. We have a few more fundraisers that I think will get us were we need to be."
