The third production of the Brevard Little Theatre’s 60th season, The Mousetrap, one of the most popular mysteries by Agatha Christie, has been cast and is in rehearsal.  The director of the production, Asheville’s Michael Wilson, is directing in Brevard for the first time.  He says, “I remember the thrill I got when reading through my first Christie book, Ten Little Indians, because I never really knew just whodunnit until the very end.  The Mousetrap follows that vein and keeps the audience guessing the entire time.”

The cast, called “stellar” by Wilson, is evenly split between actors from Brevard and Asheville. It is comprised of Michele & Marvin Barg, Michael Boulos, Sonia Arnold, Joseph Barcia, Ann Strother, Mandi Hart and Scott Bean. Maureen Edick is the producer and Liz Malzone the stage manager.

The Mousetrap originally opened in London in 1952 and, with over 24,000 performances so far, is now the longest running show of the modern era.  The play is also known for its twist at the end that audience members are always asked not to reveal.  Previously performed by BLT in 2000, The Mousetrap is being reprised by popular request.

The play will be performed the two weekends of June 18th and June 25th at the American Legion Hall on East Jordan St. in Brevard.  For additional information or to make reservations, contact BLT at 828.884.BLTR [2587]
