Murder at church starts May 27

HILLSBURGH - When members of the Mousetrap Society get together at Halloween, they think they are in the mood to enjoy a weekend of fun.

But,  nothing is as it seems. Revelations from the past start to add a sinister dimension, dead bodies mount, and tension escalates into a shocking conclusion that would have left Agatha Christie herself wondering.

Century Theatre Guild will present A Party to Murder, by Marcia Kash and Douglas E. Hughes, at Century Church Theatre May 27 to June 5. Directed by Jo Phenix, the play is a marvel of twists and turns, shocks and surprises, special effects, and things that go bump in the night.

Charles Prince, host of the get-together and architect of the complex game they are playing, is played by Peter King, who recently appeared in the Farndale Avenue…Murder Mystery. The two plays and roles could not be more different. Also returning from Farndale is Kendra Kidnie, playing McKenzie, a fashion model and reluctant girlfriend of Elwood, played by Century regular Frank Rempel.  He finds playing a powerful businessman different from being the Dame in Babes in the Wood.

Rhonda Hewitson, as Valerie, has appeared at the Century Church many times, in plays as diverse as Count Dracula and Move Over Mrs. Markham. Rebecca Reid is Henri, Valerie’s timid sister with hidden depths, while ex-football star Willy is played by her father, Chris Reid, last seen here as the drunken husband in Key For Two.

The play runs from May 27 to June 5, with evening performances at 8pm on Fridays and Saturdays, and matinees at 2:30pm on Sundays. An adjudicator from Theatre Ontario will be present on June 5 to give the cast and crew some expert feedback on the performance. That is part of the learning process provided to members of The Association of Community Theatres, Central Ontario. Part of that adjudication will be public, and the audience will be invited to stay and listen, if it so chooses. The popular silent auction will also will be available downstairs, and will run through Sept. 18.

Tickets are $18 including all taxes and charges, with a 10% discount for groups of 10 or more. Seats may be reserved by calling the box office with VISA or Mastercard at 519-855-4586.
