The longest running play in London’s West End, The Mousetrap, is making its debut in Bundaberg tonight.
At last night’s “Members’ Night” Playhouse members were treated to suspense, humour, fine acting and directing and a set that became a pivotal part of the production and their rapturous applause bodes well for the play’s season.
The Bundaberg production features three of Bundaberg Players’ most experienced actors: Sherry Barnes, Nigel Dick, and Phillip Fresta and welcomes some of the company’s up and coming stars, Timothy Greig, Tayla Little, Jacob Treloar, Rhys Williams, and Ally Wilson.
The Mousetrap full of suspense
Tracie Faithfull said she was very pleased with the Bundaberg Players’ production of The Mousetrap.
“I am delighted with our cast and backstage crew, and trust audiences will love our production of The Mousetrap” Tracey said.
“It is a classic whodunnit that will have Bundaberg audiences entranced. The Mouse Trap centres on a group of strangers stranded in a boarding house during a snowstorm, one of whom is a murderer.
“The Mousetrap will have the audience guessing until the end and we will be continuing the tradition from the London performance, asking for a promise from the audience… to keep the secret of the whodunit.”
Bundaberg theatre goers will have the chance to see this legendary Agatha Christie play presented by Bundaberg Players Incorporated for five performances.
Opening Night is tonight (Friday August 2) at 7.30 pm, with performances this Saturday at 7.30 pm and a Sunday matinee at 3 pm.
The season continues the following Friday and Saturday nights at 7.30 pm.
Patrons can book online or at the Playhouse Theatre Box Office, which opens an hour before performances; on Saturdays and Sundays from 10 am til 12 pm, or by phoning 4153 1904.
Tickets are $22 for adults and $19 for Concessions and Groups of 10 or more.
