PIQUA — The Edison Stagelight Players will make their debut performance of Agatha Christie’s “The Mousetrap,” from Oct. 23 to Nov. 1. All performances will be held in the Robinson Theater at the Piqua Campus.
“The Mousetrap” is a popular murder mystery tale set in an English country house in 1952 that chronicles the story of a group of strangers who are stranded during the middle of a snowstorm. Amongst the group is a murderer. Appealing to viewers of all ages, “The Mousetrap engrosses” audiences in solving the whodunit.
Director Emily Beisner is enthusiastic about directing this popular story.
“I’m delighted to be back in the director’s chair this fall,” Beisner said. “I wanted to do something that we have never done before, and ‘The Mousetrap’ presented that opportunity.”
“It has been quite the change rehearsing with only nine actors, but they have been working very hard and I couldn’t be happier with my cast,” Beisner added.
Performances are scheduled for Oct. 23, 24, 30 and 31 at 7:30 p.m. each night. A special matinee performance will be held on Nov. 1 at 3 p.m.
Tickets for the show are $7 for adults, $5 for students and $3 for seniors, and can be purchased with cash at the door. Children 12 and under get in free. For more information, contact Karen Baker at 937-381-1502 or [email protected].
