* Join the cast of Geneva High School players as they keep Halloween's vibe alive into November with "Night Watch," a play of suspense in two acts, at 2 p.m. Sunday in Geneva High School's auditorium, 416 McKinley. Unable to sleep, Elaine Wheeler paces the living room of her Manhattan townhouse, troubled by unsettling memories and vague fears. Her husband, Trevor Morgan, tries to comfort her, but when she steps away for a moment Elaine screams as she sees or believes she sees the body of a dead man in the window across the way. The police are called but find nothing except an empty chair. Elaine's terror grows as shortly thereafter she sees still another body -- this time a woman's -- but by now the police are skeptical and pay no heed to her frantic pleas. Her husband, claiming that Elaine may be on the verge of a breakdown, calls in a psychiatrist who agrees with his suggestion that Elaine should commit herself to a sanitarium for treatment. From this point on, the plot moves quickly as those involved -- Elaine's old friend and house guest Blanche, the inquisitive and rather sinister man who lives next door, and the German maid Helga all contribute to the deepening suspense and mystery of the play as it draws toward its climax. Tickets for $5 or $3 for children, students and seniors can be purchased at the door 30 minutes before seating. For information, call (630) 463-3800.
