Agatha Christie's a Murder is Announced

Agatha Poster

Adapted by Leslie Darbon
Director:  Jeanne Leep
February 24, 25, March 3, 4 @ 7:30 pm, & March 4 @ 2:00 pm

An announcement in the local paper states the time and place when a murder is to occur in Miss Blacklock's Victorian house. The victim is not one of the house's several occupants, but an unexpected and unknown visitor. What follows is a classic Christie puzzle of mixed motives, concealed identities, a second death, a determined Inspector grimly following the twists and turns, and Miss Marple on hand to provide the final solution at some risk to herself in a dramatic confrontation just before the final curtain.

Mystical, Magical Fantasy is currently the most popular theme in children's literature. Why is this so? What is it that draws children to these magical, mythical places and characters? In this year's Theatre for Young Audiences production we will explore the World of Fantasy in today's most popular Children's Literature and create an exciting new play that reflects why this theme is such a favorite!
