Lebanon Community Theatre Presents AND THEN THERE WERE NONE
Thriller and crime drama fans alike are encouraged to mark their calendars to visit Lebanon Community Theatre this month for a presentation of Agatha Christie's And Then There Were None. Based on Christie's novel of the same name, the play tells the chilling tale of ten strangers, apparently with little in common, who are lured to a vacation on an isolated island. The tides soon turn when the guests begin dying one by one. Is there someone else on the island? Is the killer among them? Who, if anyone, will survive?
"And Then There Were None is a play guaranteed to keep you on the edge of your seat," said Sean Bennett, who takes the helm in the director's chair for this production. "I made my directorial debut with this play, so I am excited to now bring this amazing show to life at Lebanon Community Theatre, and I couldn't have asked for a better cast or crew beside me. The actors bring these characters to life so beautifully, the audience will want to come back again."
Bennett is a newcomer to the Lebanon Community Theatre family, but has previously staged And Then There Were None at the Majestic Theatre in Pottsville, Pa. He also has recently appeared in the cast of LCT's 2019 production fundraiser, Broadway at the Barn.
Joining Bennett's cast are Eileen Daub as Vera Claythorne, Glenn Anderson as Phillip Lombard, Daniel Walmer as William Blore, Shirley Folmer as Helen Rogers, Sandi Trait as Ethel Rogers, Sunshie Rishel as Doctor Armstrong, Tice Allison as Lawrence Wargrave, Isiah Hunter as Anthony Marston, Jane Zendarski as Emily Brent, Marc Lubbers as General Mackenzie and Michael Witmer as Fred Narracott.
When And Then There Were None was being adapted to the stage for Broadway, the producers felt that the novel ending was too dark and morbid for a World War II ridden America. The ending was reworked, and the show went on to critical acclaim. On the 125th anniversary of Christie's birth, her grandson wrote the novel ending into the play. Giving directors their choice of either the 1943 revised ending, or the 1939 original ending. Don't miss your only chance to see the full story, in Agatha Christie's own words, with a special performance of the original ending on Saturday September 21.
