AHS presents play tonight and Saturday night.

The Augusta High School Spring Play, "Lizzie Borden of Fall River," is a thrilling mystery about the unsolved ax murders of Andrew and Abby Borden in 1872. Lizzie Borden was charged with the crime and the trial was sensationalized across the country.

The Lizzie Borden case is without parallel in the criminal history of America, and it divided public opinion as no murder trial had ever done. Did the strong-willed, intelligent Lizzie dispatch her father and stepmother with an axe one fateful August morning, or was she the innocent victim of circumstance?

With the assistance of a talented lawyer and the news reporting of a young journalist Am Robsart, Lizzie was acquitted of the murder charges and the crime remains unsolved, although many believed Lizzie did indeed commit the murders.

It's a drama and suspense-thriller that will keep the audience guessing right up to the final scene.

The Borden house in Fall River, Mass., has in later years become a popular site for ghost hunting and paranormal investigations.

The talented cast will present performances at 7 p.m. Friday and Saturday nights on stage in the AHS auditorium.

The acting is polished, and the costumes and set designs are definite assets to the production.

This will be the last time on stage for AHS seniors Katie Garr, Liz Haury, Joe Pherigo, Lacey Schwartz, Angie Thompson, and Ronnie White.

The production is directed by Tim Laner.
