Whidbey Children’s Theater is proud to present Agatha Christie’s “The Mousetrap,” the second production of their “Season to Remember,” this weekend starting Thursday.

Special Student Night: Thursday Dec. 17, tickets $5 for youth under 18, or with Student ID!

The Mousetrap is presented in WCT’s intimate black box theater space, The Martha Murphy Barn (limited to 40 seats per show). A classic mystery brought skillfully to the stage by Director David Mayer and a dedicated cast of high school actors, this one will leave you guessing until the final curtain.

You’ll be thrust into the depths of mystery as we find ourselves in an English country manor amidst a blizzard of unusual proportions. Shortly after a local murder, the cast of seemingly unrelated characters must find their connections if they are to survive—and some of them won’t!

Agatha Christie is known as both the “The Queen of Crime” and “The Queen of Mystery” and is the best selling novelist in history. “The Mousetrap” is also the longest-running stage play in history, opening in 1952 and still running today at St. Martin’s Theatre in London.

Performances show Dec. 17, 18 and 19 at 7 p.m., and Sunday, Dec. 20 at 2 p.m.
Tickets are $8 (Students, 18 and under) and $16 (Adults & Seniors). This production is recommended ages 12+, no babes in arms, no late seating. 

For tickets and information, visit www.wctmagic.org or call 360-221-8707. The box office opens one hour before every performance. Please call ahead for handicapped-accessible seating if possible, so we can give you the best experience possible.
