Whidbey Children’s Theater will present Agatha Christie’s “The Mousetrap” next month.

The second production of their “Season to Remember,” the show opens Thursday, Dec. 10 and runs through Sunday, Dec. 20.

“The Mousetrap” is presented in the organization’s intimate black box theater space, The Martha Murphy Barn. Seating is limited — 40 seats per show.

A classic mystery brought skillfully to the stage by Director David Mayer and a dedicated cast of high school actors, the show may leave you guessing until the final curtain.

The audience may be thrust into the depths of mystery as they find themselves 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 — some 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, according to a recent news release. “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 are 7 p.m. Dec. 10-12 and Dec. 17-19, 2 p.m. Dec. 13 and Dec. 20. Whidbey Children’s Theater is located at 723 Camano Ave. in Langley.

The production is recommended ages 12 and over; no babes in arms and no late seating.

Tickets cost $16 for adults and seniors, $8 for students 18 and under. A special student night is Thursday, Dec. 17 with tickets costing $5.

For ticket information, visit www.wctmagic.org or call 360-221-8707. The box office opens one hour before every performance. Call ahead for available handicapped accessible seating.
