A murderer is on the loose in Agatha Christie's The Mousetrap. In 1950s London, a group of strangers wind up trapped in a boarding house during a major snowstorm. The strangers will wind up in a whodunnit, searching for clues after realizing one of them is a murderer.
Bekki Jo Schneider directed The Mousetrap for Derby Dinner Playhouse. The cast features Tina Jo Wallace as Mollie Ralston, Cary Wiger as Giles Ralston, Peter Ripple as Christopher Wren, David Myers as Major Metcalf, Janet Essenpreis as Miss Casewell, J.R. Stuart as Mr. Paravicini, and John Vessels as Detective Sergeant Trotter.
The Mousetrap is one of the longest running plays in history, running continuously since 1952 when it opened in the West End in London.
During The Mousetrap's run, the Derby Dinner children's theatre will present Captain Louie. That production will open on Saturday.
