If you need a good belly laugh, please join the Exeter Township Senior High cast and crew for "Million Dollar Baby," a comic melodrama by Craig Sodaro. Nope, it's not the Clint Eastwood movie with the same name; instead, our fall play takes place in Chicago and features Nellie Cavandish, played by senior Lizzie West, as a saintly sister to her greedy brother, Creepstone, played by junior Ryan Claudfelter. Their daddy willed $1,000 to each with the stipulation that the one who increases the amount most within 30 days will inherit his entire fortune. The struggle between good and evil becomes a tug of war, with Nellie and her gentle friends, including the Chicago Fire Department, pulling honestly and earnestly, and Creepstone and his hoods, gamblers and show girls using every underhanded, dishonest ploy they can conjure up. The production, directed by Kathy Galtere, also features can't-miss performances by junior Alison Applegate as Lotta and senior Tyler Casiano as Nick.
