BEAUFORT, S.C. – Over 40 Holy Trinity Classical Christian School students will be performing in the 7th Annual Spring Production, Lampstead Hall, a Mystery, on Thursday and Friday, May 9 and 10 at 6:00 pm at the Tabby Place located at 913 Port Republic Street, downtown Beaufort.
Lampstead Hall is an original play written by Holy Trinity second grade teacher, Elizabeth Booman. Miss Booman began writing plays for her family to perform when she was nine years old; she has loved theater and writing ever since. She wrote her first play for non-family members in 2012 when the need arose for a school Christmas program (this turned into Where Love Is, There God Is Also). Since then, she has written, directed, and choreographed 12 more plays for Holy Trinity Classical Christian School. Elizabeth writes the scripts, songs, and lyrics, while her sister Anna Booman provides musical arrangement. Anna is also a teacher at Holy Trinity where she teaches music and art.
In a synopsis of the play, Elizabeth Booman writes: “Mystery surrounds Lampstead Hall, the ancestral home of Lord Montmerle. When Lord Montmerle suddenly – and suspiciously – dies, his eccentric family descends on Lampstead Hall, each eager for a piece of the inheritance. But when the will is read, the family is left with more questions than answers; who is the true heir? Was Lord Montmerle really murdered? And what is the secret of Lampstead Hall? So, travel, if you dare, to Lampstead Hall, and discover the truth for yourself.
A classic, gothic mystery, complete with suspicious characters, devious villains, and shocking twists and turns, this tale will keep you wondering until the last, spine-tingling moment. Join the race to find the heir of Lampstead Hall…or a murderer just might get there first!” Here’s what some of the student actors had to say about why you should see Lampstead Hall:
