theatre | tickets on sale now
Agatha Christie’s And Then There Were None Oct. 19-Nov. 3 | Topeka Civic Theatre, 3028 SW 8th Ave.
“In this superlative mystery statuettes of little soldier boys on the mantel of a house on an island off the coast of Devon fall to the floor and break one by one as those in the house succumb to a diabolical avenger. A nursery rhyme tells how each of the ten “soldiers” met his death until there were none. Eight guests who have never met each other or their apparently absent host and hostess is lured to the island and, along with the two house servants, marooned. A mysterious voice accuses each of having gotten away with murder and then one drops dead – poisoned. One down and nine to go!”
Tickets may be purchased on-line at the Topeka Civic Theatre & Academy website, at the box office located at 3028 SW 8th Street, or by phone: 785-357-5211.
