Rehearsals have begun for Agatha Christie's Murder on the Orient Express, on stage March 6 through 15.

This unforgettable mystery takes audiences on a thrilling ride - Just after midnight, a snowdrift stops the Orient Express in its tracks. The luxurious train is surprisingly full for the time of the year, but by the morning it is one passenger fewer.
