Theatre Performances

  • Agatha Christie’s And Then There Were None
    • Date: Performances Feb 24, 25, 26, March 3, 4, 5, 6, 10 and 11.
    • Time: 7:30 Evenings, Sunday Matinees at 2:00
    • Presented by Coal Creek Theater of  Louisville
    • Details: Ten guilty strangers are trapped on an island.  One by one they are accused of murder, and one by one they die.  In this superlative mystery-comedy Agatha Christie foretells each death with statues of little soldier boys on the mantle of the house on the island falling and breaking on the floor.  A nursery rhyme tells how each of the “soldiers” met his death until there were none.  A mysterious voice accuses each “guest” of having gotten away with murder and then one drops dead.  One down and nine to go!
