Hamilton drama presents “And Then There Were None”

Hamilton High School Drama invites community members to attend “And Then There Were None” a murder mystery by Agatha Christie Oct. 16-19 at the Hamilton Fine Arts Center (HFAC). Shows are at 7 p.m. Thursday through Saturday, and at 2 p.m. on Sunday.

Ten guilty strangers are lured to an old beach resort on a remote private island. In the main house, the strangers discover a mantelpiece lined with 10 little soldier statuettes and topped with a familiar nursery rhyme that tells how each of the 10 soldiers met his death. As the strangers contemplate the rhyme, a mysterious voice accuses each of having gotten away with murder. Soon, one stranger drops dead – poisoned. And, one statuette drops and smashes on the floor. One down, nine to go. One by one the strangers meet the same end as the soldiers in the rhyme. Will they find the murderer before the last soldier falls, and then there are none?

Tickets are $8 for adults and $5 for students and senior citizens. They may be purchased 30 minutes prior to the show at the HFAC box office. Please note only cash and checks can be accepted at the ticket window. Tickets may also be purchased online at the HFAC website www.hamiltonfineartscenter.com.
