Gleneagle secondary teachers Chris Turpin (rugby) and Ashley Freeborn (drama) play husband and wife Bill and Betty Blast in Murder at the Hoedown, a fundraiser for the Coquitlam school’s spring production of Footloose.

The second annual interactive murder mystery on March 7 features 18 teachers and administrators — including Rachel Vaessen as Det. Lily Lightfoot and principal Gerald Shong — dressed up as cowboys and cowgirls.

Also performing on the stage will be about 40 musical theatre students. For tickets at $30 to the 19+ hoedown, email Vaessen at rvaessen@sd43.bc.ca or Lisa Apps at lapps@sd43.bc.ca.
