The final production of the 2016–2017 University of Wisconsin Oshkosh Theatre Department’s season, A Wayward World, opens on Thursday, April 27, with Agatha Christie’s And Then There Were None, directed by Jane Purse-Wiedenhoeft.
The production has performances at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, April 27, Friday, April 28 and Saturday, April 29, and 2 p.m. on Sunday, April 30.
A synopsis of And Then There Were None: Off the coast of Devon, England, eight guilty guests, who have never met are lured to a desolate island and marooned there. A mysterious voice accuses each person of having been responsible for a murder. In this classic Agatha Christie murder mystery, statuettes of soldiers fall from the mantel of a house and break one by one as those in the house succumb to a diabolical murderer filled with a thirst for revenge. One guest drops dead—poisoned! One down and nine to go!
“This classic Agatha Christie mystery is being produced because our Acting Studio students loved the production of her play The Mousetrap that we saw at Milwaukee Repertory Theatre,” Purse-Wiedenhoeft said. “This is the first time that the Theatre Department has produced one of her plays. Better late than never!”
Ticket prices are $14 for general, $11 for senior citizen or alumni and $5 for UWO students with ID; tickets may be purchased at the box office, which opens April 24. The box office is open weekdays noon to 4 p.m. and one hour before each performance.
