The Rye High School Parsons Street Players proudly kicks off its’ 2012-13 theatrical season with an innovative program of comedy and mystery on October 12th and 13th. For the first time two plays are being performed with two extraordinary casts.
Christopher Durang’s “AN ACTOR’S NIGHTMARE”, is a hilarious one-act satire detailing the plight of a stranger who is suddenly pushed on stage to replace an ailing actor. He has no knowledge of his lines, or even what play he’s in. Is it Hamlet, Noel Coward’s Private Lives, or some other play? And why is he there?
Then be prepared for intrigue and suspense as you watch Agatha Christie’s renowned play, “AND THEN THERE WERE NONE”. Join this disparate group of people who are invited to a house party on a remote island. The host is absent, they’re all accused of murder and bodies stack up like leaves in autumn. This is Christie’s most-performed play and was made into the movie “Ten Little Indians”. See if you can figure out whodunit, before it’s too late.
Performances are Friday, October 12th at 8pm, and Saturday, October 13th at 2pm and 8pm. Tickets are sold at the performances and are $10 for adults, $5 for students and senior citizens are free.
