Kearney, Mo., October 18, 2022: It’s time to enjoy some mysterious mayhem at Kearney High School.

The KHS theater department is presenting its fall play, “The Plot, Like Gravy, Thickens,” starting at 7 p.m. tonight, Oct. 18, and continuing every night through Saturday, Oct. 22, in the school auditorium. Tickets can be purchased at the door or online at

This madcap mystery follows a playwright’s alter ego as he plots a nefarious deed in his imagination. It features great storm effects, spiffy costumes and lots of fun.

Productions like these are unique opportunities to experience Real World Learning, according to KHS theater teacher Wendy Fish.

“Nearly 60 students have overcome many obstacles this fall and worked many after-school hours to bring this show to performance level,” Ms. Fish said. “The cast, crew and Drama and Stagecraft classes have learned all about lighting, stage makeup, costuming, memorizing, acting, set building, set painting and all sorts of problem-solving tasks to prepare for the show!”
