This will be her first – and ONLY - New York appearance in more than ten years!

I plan to be there!

Join the Kentwood Players at the Westchester Playhouse as they present a comical mystery with many twists and turns. This is not your ordinary open-and-shut case - find out why starting May 16.

A MURDER IS ANNOUNCED by Agatha Christie, adapted for the stage by Leslie Darbon. May 16 - June 21, 2008 (Fridays & Saturdays at 8 pm - Sundays at 2 pm). Westchester Playhouse, Westchester, CA (by Los Angeles International Airport) -

The production is directed by Carol Becker, with assistant director Liz Reinhardt. And appropriately enough, the show’s producer is Lori Marple - those who are familiar with Christie’s work will recognize that often-used name. The cast includes Cory Andersen, Joel D. Castro, Caity Engler, Kelley Goode, Susan Gordon, Susie McCarthy, Andrew McMurtrey, Kathryn Scott, Shawn K. Summerer, Jack Winnick, and Alice Eldridge as Miss Marple.

Synopsis: The Chipping Cleghorn Gazette has a peculiar ad posted in the personal section stating, "A murder is announced and will take place on Friday, October the thirteenth, at Little Paddocks - at six-thirty p.m." Everyone living at Little Paddocks is skeptical if this is hoax - or if there is truth to the column. When a mystery man arrives at the aforementioned time attempting to kill Miss Blacklock, a murder does indeed take place, but it is the killer who is found dead.

In true Agatha Christie style, this classic whodunit has many suspects, each with their own motives. Inspector Craddock is on the case interviewing those present at the murder while gathering clues and other pertinent details. When another death occurs, the Inspector is assisted by the ultimate sleuth, Miss Marple, who ultimately solves the case.
