Dial ‘M’ for Murder
May 10 & 11, 2013 at 8pm
Directed by Lynn Fennell
Cast: Pat Larkin, Cheryl Singer, Bill McMahon, Barrie Atkinson, Bryan Persaud and Jason Young

Tony Wendice married his wife, Margot, for her money and now plans to murder her for the same reason. Arranging the perfect murder, he blackmails a scoundrel he used to know into strangling her for a fee of 1000 pounds, devising a brilliant alibi for himself. When his scheme takes an unexpected turn, he uses the opportunity to frame his wife. Luckily, the inspector from Scotland Yard and the man who truly loves Margot discover the truth in the riveting climactic scene.

Special One Act Matinee series May 5th and 12th at 2 p.m.:

A Little Something for the Ducks
Directed by Jennifer Goodman and Georgia Papanicolaou
Cast: John McCarthy and Joyce Armstrong

Romance is the theme of the play, as two lonely seniors find the potential for friendship and companionship in their golden years near a pond where the sign clearly indicates “Don’t Feed the Ducks!”. They bicker at first, but their common need allows them to find a way to friendship. A touching story of two elderly characters seeking to once again feel fully engaged with life.

A Scent of Honeysuckle
Directed by Jennifer Goodman & Georgia Papanicolaou
Cast: Wilma McCagg, Susan Mitchell and Paulina McMahon

A small gem featuring three members of a family: a mother, her daughter and the earlier mother, now departed, who “returns” on the day her grandchild is trying to move her mother out of the family home she can no longer function safely in…a situation most families face at some point in their lives, when memories of yesteryear are still vivid and enduring and the present no longer seems welcoming.
