A Murder Is Announced
Nov 15, 16, 22, 23, 24, 2019
Elm Street Congregational Church, Southbridge, MA

"A Murder is Announced" by Agatha Christie will be the final production in Gateway's 44th season. Erin Morin is directing, with Mary Gahagan as producer, Ruth Rockwood as stage manager and Pam Soper doing costumes. Production dates are at Elm St. Congregational Church, 61 Elm Street, Southbridge, MA in the Fellowship Hall.

Tickets are $15 for adults and $13 for seniors and youth under 18. Tickets may be reserved by calling Gateway at 508-764-4531. Online credit card ticket sales are available: here.

THE STORY: An announcement in the local paper states the time and place when a murder is to occur in Miss Blacklock's Victorian house. The victim is not one of the house's several occupants, but an unexpected and unknown visitor. What follows is a classic Christie puzzle of mixed motives, concealed identities, a second death, a determined Inspector grimly following the twists and turns, and Miss Marple on hand to provide the final solution at some risk to herself in a dramatic confrontation just before the final curtain.

 

FYI, we've added a new feature titled 'Audition Corner' to our Auditions page, with regularly updated tips on how to prepare and (hopefully) get that role! Check it out!

    

 

Gateway to the Future Fund

This fund has been established to cover all costs associated with finding a new performance space in Southbridge. We are currently exploring a few different options, and we are anticipating this could take at least two years to find and renovate a new permanent home. We expect the cost to do this could be upwards of $500,000. In the next year we will be holding several fundraisers, reaching out to local businesses in the area, and applying for grants. You can also donate directly on our Facebook Page. Login to your FB account, go to to FB/GatewayPlayers and The "Donate" button is located on the right, below the cover photo. All donations are tax deductible. We thank you very much for your continued support of Gateway Players Theatre.
