Agatha Mysterie’s Montana Mansion Is the Place 

Jim Ward

Will you be there? Susan Sterling stepped up as director (again) to everyone’s delight. She chose a murder mystery because it’s no secret, the audience loves a good murder mystery. Audiences will be happy to hear “The House of Agatha Mysterie” will be performed March 25, 26, 27 and 29, 30, 31. Tickets will go on sale Feb. 6.

So here is a little about the play, just to whet your appetite—or sharpen your knife. Ms. Mysterie, the famous and prolific mystery writer, gathers a group of the world’s finest, although peculiar, detectives to her home for a weekend of rollicking and relaxation. She convinces them all to solemnly promise not to solve any mystery for two whole days. They all agree. Then a mystery ensues. Did Dudley do it? After all, he is the butler. Or maybe Rob Remington, with his steely reserve, might have committed the crime. Regardless, we promise that the Russian maid, Anna Sthesia, won’t put you to sleep. The play is full of frenzied one-liners, wordplay, and hilarity.

The play includes 10 actors, five male and five female. Come out to auditions in the MountainView Ballroom West, on Jan. 8 and 9 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. (plan to attend both days) and give it a go.

Lastly, but certainly not of least importance, we are recruiting for behind-the-scenes personnel. So, are you a sound individual? Then come on out and help create our sound effects. Would you like to light up the stage? We would really love to highlight your brilliant skills. Are you ready to earn some props? Our props people can always use a hand. Are you handy with a hammer? We always welcome a fix-it person. Even if you aren’t in the spotlight, we can find a spot for you. Whether you’re a patron or participant, we hope to see you in March.
