Jennings Players first performance of season planned

The curtains open on the Jennings County Players 2016-17 season with Agatha Christie’s 1943 mystery comedy, “And Then There Were None.”

Performances will be at 7:30 p.m. Oct. 21 and 22 and 2 p.m. 23 at the Park Theatre Civic Centre, 25 N. Madison Ave., North Vernon.

The screenplay tells of 10 strangers lured by a mysterious host for a relaxing weekend on a remote island. Once they have arrived, there is a suspicious death.

The host accuses each person, via a recording, of having escaped justice for a past murder. Unable to leave the island, the guests begin to share their darkest secrets until they fall one by one. The ever-dwindling party rushes to unmask the hidden killer in their midst. Who is the murderer? Who is next? This entertaining whodunit will keep any audience member guessing until the play ends.

The play is being directed by Marilee Taylor.

Tickets may be purchased in advance at the theater. The box office is open from 3 to 6 p.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays and from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturdays.

Tickets also may be purchased at the door prior to each performance.
