Agatha Christie Mystery at Lakeshore Players Feb 28 - March 30 The Queen of Mystery has returned to White Bear Lake. Agatha Christie is the acknowledged mistress of suspense and the creator of indomitable sleuth Miss Marple, meticulous Belgian detective Hercule Poirot, and so many other unforgettable characters. She wrote the world’s best selling mystery, "And Then There Were None" and Lakeshore Players is bringing that story to life on stage.
Considered the best mystery novel ever written by many readers, "And Then There Were None" is about ten strangers—each with something to hide and something to fear—lured to a lonely island by a mysterious host. Unable to leave the island, the guests begin to share their darkest secrets—until they begin to die.
When the novel was originally published in 1939, the New York Times called it “utterly impossible and utterly fascinating. It is the most baffling mystery Agatha Christie has ever written.”
With 16 performances, the show runs for five weekends through March 2, Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 p.m., and Sundays at 2:00 p.m. There will be a special preview performance on Thursday, February 27. Tickets are only $10, but seats are limited.
Audience members attending the Friday, February 28 performance are invited to a free post-show reception with delicious food catered by White Bear Lake's Ingredients Cafe.
On Sunday, March 2, "pay-what-you-can" rush tickets will be available starting at noon for the 2:00 performance. The audience is invited to stay after the show for a brief discussion with the actors about the play.
Performances are at Lakeshore Players Theatre, 4820 Stewart Avenue in downtown White Bear Lake. Regular tickets are $18-20 and may be reserved in advance by calling 651-429-5674, with remaining seats sold at the door starting two hours prior to show time.
