Old Time Thriller Set for Runnels Theatre
If you love a good mystery, you’ll be captivated by the new Runnels High School production of Agatha Christie’s 1939 classic thriller, "And Then There Were None." Directed by Sonya Blanchard, the drawing room mystery comes to the stage of the Gladys Hague Runnels Theatre for two performances Oct. 25 and 26.
The story opens in a mansion on a remote island off the coast of England where eight strangers have arrived as invited guests of a wealthy but unknown host. Though their host is oddly absent, the guests are greeted by a threatening recording that accuses each of committing a murder that has gone unpunished. Fear and horror mount as one by one the guests begin to die, but who among them is the killer?
Featured in the ensemble cast are seniors Jackie Hinkle, Kyra Reeves and Aubri Watts, juniors Evan Beoubay, Sophie Edwards, Madisan Milam, Marshall Pentes and Mollybeth Wilkinson, sophomores Sydney Mistretta and Abby Robbins, and freshmen Sophia Horridge and Eli Latiolais. The director is Sonya Blanchard and the assistant director is Madisan Milam.
