Cortland Repertory Theatre presents their fourth show in the 2012 summer season with Agatha Christie's THE HOLLOW, running August 1-11. BroadwayWorld has a first look at the production below.

Tickets may be purchased by calling 800-427-6160 or in person at the CRT Box Office at their new location, 24 Port Watson Street in Cortland. Tickets are also available for sale 24 hours a day through the CRT website at www.cortlandrep.org. The show is suitable for the teens and up, as it may not hold the attention of younger children.

Directing the show is CRT's Assistant Producer Jim Bumgardner, whose previous CRT credits include two other Christie mysteries, both hits for CRT: "The Mousetrap" and last season's "A Murder is Announced", which became CRT's 3rd highest attended non-musical play in the theatre's 41 year history. Other CRT shows directed by Bumgardner include "Brigadoon", "Fiddler on the Roof", "Moonlight and Magnolias", amongst many others. Frequent CRT actor Dustin Charles serves as Dialect Coach for the cast as well as playing the philandering doctor, John Cristow. Stage Manager Laura Krouch leads the production staff comprised of designers with much experience at CRT, including Costume Designer Wendi Zea, Lighting Designer Shawn Boyle, Props Mistress Danielle Hodgins, Sound Designer Seth Asa Sengel and Scenic Designer Jonathan Wentz, who designed last season's "The Smell of the Kill". Patrick McGovern continues as Technical Director as does Natasha Thompson as Assistant Stage Manager.

Playing the down-to-earth sculptress Henrietta Angkatell is Melissa Herion, seen in last summer's "Rumors". Playing the ditzy (or is she?) Lady Angkatell is Mary Williams, who was seen in "A Murder is Announced" and previously in "Six Dance Lessons in Six Weeks" and "I Hate Hamlet"; and as the gun enthusiast Sir Henry Angkatell is Dale Young, who has been seen in two other Christies - "Spider's Web" and "Ten Little Indians" along with "Gross Indecency". Dylan Schwartz-Wallach, as the love-smitten Edward Angkatell, makes his second appearance on CRT's stage this summer, having played Danny Zuko in the popular production of "Grease". Charlotte Fox also returns, to play the Hollywood siren Veronica Craye after appearing in last summer's "Chicago" and "The Smell of the Kill". Fresh from both "Grease" and "Cats" are three CRT interns, who also play crucial roles: Avery Epstein as the young and determined Midge Henry, Alexa Shanahan as the maid-with-a-secret Doris and Chris Collins as Detective Sergeant Penny. Making their CRT debuts are Phyllis Gordon as the long suffering doctor's wife Gerda Cristow, Mark Mason as Gudgeon the loyal butler and Brian Alan Hill as Inspector Colquhoun who is charged with solving the case.
