Theatre to Perform “The Mousetrap” March 1-4


Truman’s Theatre Department will perform “The Mousetrap” by Agatha Christie at 7:30 p.m. March 1-3 and 2 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. March 4 in the Black Box Theatre in Ophelia Parrish.

“The Mousetrap” is a record-breaking murder mystery that features a brilliant surprise finish from Agatha Christie, the foremost mystery writer of her time. It tells the story about how the guests and staff at Monkswell Manor find themselves stranded during a snowstorm after a local woman is murdered. It becomes clear that the killer is among them, and the seven strangers grow increasingly suspicious of one another. A police detective, arriving on skis, interrogates the suspects — the newlyweds running the house, a spinster with a curious background, an architect who seems better equipped to be a chef, a retired Army major, a strange little man who claims his car has overturned in a drift and a jurist who makes life miserable for everyone. When a second murder takes place, tensions and fears escalate.  

This play is directed by Randall Bame and is appropriate for ages 10 and up. Tickets are $8 and can be purchased at For more information, contact the Truman Theatre Box Office at 660.785.4515 between 11:30 a.m. and 5:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.
