Prepare to Have Your Spine Tingled when Rochester Alliance of Theatrical Students Presents ‘The Uninvited’

Seeking to escape the demands of life in London, Pam Fitzgerald and her brother, Roddy, an aspiring playwright, discover a charming house in the west of England, overlooking the Irish Sea. The house, Cliff End, has long been empty, and they are able to purchase it at a suspiciously low price. The reason is soon apparent: The house has an unsavory reputation. Fifteen years earlier a murder may or may not have occurred by the gnarled tree that can be viewed from the parlor window.

Slowly the Fitzgeralds begin to sense the evil spirit that still inhabits the house.  Soon visits from the village doctor, the local gossip, and a former governess, reveal stories of the beautiful Mary Meredith, who once lived in the house and of the striking, Carmel, who posed for a painting that led to her destruction. With the help of Mary’s daughter, Stella, and a séance arranged by an actress friend of the Fitzgeralds, Cliff End is forced to reveal its dark secrets.

Adapted from the novel by Dorothy Macardle, performances will take place on April 19 and 20 at 7:00 p.m. and on April 21 at 2:00 and 7:00 p.m. at Rochester High School located at 180 South Livernois Road, Rochester Hills.

Tickets are $10 for adults and $8 for students and seniors. All seats for the Saturday matinee are $5. Buy your tickets at the door or online.
