Now through April 2, M&M Performing Arts Company, Inc. will bring Agatha Christie’s murder mystery play Mousetrap to Lyndhurst Mansion. Mousetrap, the longest running play in London’s West End, follows an eclectic group of strangers who are stranded in a remote mansion during a terrible snowstorm. Sergeant Trotter arrives to investigate a recent murder that appears to be connected to someone in the mansion. The mystery will keep audiences guessing who among the suspicious guests is the murderer – all before a twist ending that turns the traditional “whodunit” formula of murder mysteries on its head. The cast includes: Jonathan Kruk, Michael Muldoon, Frank Panzer, Jim Petrillo, Karen Quinn-Panzer, Andrea Sadler, Gregg Shults and is directed by Melinda O’Brien. Performances will take place on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays at 7pm and Sundays at 6pm. Matinees run on Saturdays and Sundays at 3pm. For more info, visit: lyndhurst.org.
