"And Then There Were None" to play at the Northshore Senior Center
Thursdays, Fridays and Sundays in October

Northshore Center Center "And Then There Were None" will be performed by Curtain Call Theatre in our very own Northshore Senior Center.

Ticket prices are:
$15.00 for General public; $12.50 for Seniors and Children 10 and under; Groups of 10 or more $12.00 each

In this superlative mystery comedy statuettes of little soldier boys on the mantel of a house on an island off the coast of Devon fall to the floor and break one by one as those in the house succumb to a diabolical avenger. A nursery rhyme tells how each of the ten "soldiers" met his death until there were none. Eight guests who have never met each other or their apparently absent host and hostess are lured to the island and, along with the two  house servants, marooned. A mysterious voice accuses each of having gotten away with murder and then one drops dead --- poisoned. One down and nine to go!

Thursday and Friday performances begin at 8:00 PM: October 18, 19, 25 & 26.
Sunday performances begin at 3:30 PM: October 21 & 28
