The play Don't Try to Wake Him, Hand Me the Shovel, directed by Sherwin and Ann Langholdt, was performed Tuesday, May 18, 2021, at 7:30 PM in the Forster Auditorium, . 

Below is a short synopsis. 

"From the word “GO,” investigative reporters Livermore and Highwater are determined to get the (alleged) spooks at Billingsgate Mansion on the six o’clock news and get the break they need to save their jobs. The featured story: Seeing is Believing. Paranoid, they enter the dreaded Billingsgate mansion in ghost-catching wardrobe and full ghost gear (fatigues and a video camera). One rat-a-tat-tat sends Livermore running for the exit, “This was a dumb idea, this was a stupid idea, this was a ridiculous idea!” and Highwater avowals, “And all three of them were yours!” Ever try to get a ghost on the six o’clock news? Here’s what you get: a ghostswept broadcast with a squad of lost cheerleaders, a double-dealing horror movie producer and her secretary, a couple of convicts trying to stash a body in the basement, and a bumbling policeman on the prowl. Nobody can tell the guests from the ghosts and shortly after the news, it’s every ghost for himself. Only Pat Cook gives you all the comforts of home in this fast-paced farcical ghosthunt with a ghostbuster named Pookee."
