Stage Door, Inc. (SDI), Mont Belvieu's very own community theatre is pleased to announce the third audition of its 2020 Inaugural Season, The Mousetrap by Agatha Christie.
Auditions Held on Sunday, February 9th and Monday, February 10th, 2019 from 6pm-9pm.
The most famous Agatha Christie play of all time, also the longest running play in the world! The story takes place as a group of strangers is stranded in a boarding house during a snow storm, one of whom is a murderer. The suspects include the newly married couple who run the house, and the suspicions in their minds nearly wreck their perfect marriage. Others are a spinster with a curious background, an architect who seems better equipped to be a chef, a retired Army major, a strange little man who claims his car has overturned in a drift, and a jurist who makes life miserable for everyone. Into their midst comes a policeman, traveling on skis. He no sooner arrives, when the jurist is killed. Two down, and one to go. To get to the rationale of the murderer's pattern, the policeman probes the background of everyone present, and rattles a lot of skeletons. Another famous Agatha Christie switch finish! another superb intrigue for the foremost mystery writer of her time.
