Photo Flash: In Rehearsal for TexARTS' AND THEN THERE WERE NONE

For the final production of the 2015-16 professional season, TexARTS presents the classic murder mystery, Agatha Christie's "And Then There Were None." Set in a solitary island mansion, ten strangers are brought together under mysterious circumstances. All seems perfectly civilized until one by one they are murdered in poetic fashion. Find out whodunit at the Kam & James Morris Theatre, February 19-28.

The show is directed by Tyler King, winner of the 2015 Broadway World Austin award for best direction of a musical ("Catch Me If You Can," The Wimberley Players). Tyler currently serves as the Artistic Director for the Wimberley Players, he co-founded the theatre company Out of Context Productions and has worked with Theatre en Bloc, Doctuh Mistuh Productions, and Summer Stock Austin. Internationally he has interned at the SOHO Theatre (London, England), Skopje Dramski (Skopje, Macedonia), and participated in the Rhodopi International Theatre Laboratory (Smolyan, Bulgaria). His other directing credits include "Austin Is A Place (You are Here)" with Theatre en Bloc, "Look Back in Anger" with Out of Context Productions, and "The Pillowman" at Southwestern University.

"This season, we have been welcomed back to the Austin theatre scene with open arms by professionals and patrons alike," Jarret Mallon, TexARTS executive director said. "We close the season in mystery and suspense with this timeless classic."

The cast includes Derek Smootz (Fred Narracott), winner of the 2015 Broadway World Austin award for best actor in a musical.
