The Drama Department at EACC will present the fall production of Agatha Christie’s Murder on the Nile on Saturday and Sunday, October 28th and 29th in the EACC Fine Arts Center. The curtain will rise for two separate showings on Saturday, October 28th at 7:00 p.m. and Sunday, October 29th at 2:00 p.m.
Murder on the Nile is a mystery on board a river cruiser adapted from three acts of “Death on the Nile.” Kay Ridgeway led a charmed life. Blessed with beauty, enormous wealth, and a new husband, she embarks on a honeymoon voyage down the Nile. Fatal circumstances await when the idyllic surroundings are shattered by a shocking and brutal murder. Under scrutiny is a multitude of memorable passengers, all with a reason to kill. Throughout the play, tension and claustrophobia builds, as a shocking and audacious conspiracy is laid bare. Written by Agatha Christie, Murder on the Nile opened at Dundee Repertory Theatre under the title “Hidden Horizon” and was eventually presented at the Ambassadors Theatre in the West End in March 1946.
The production will feature Sam Harris, Lawson May, Charles Thweatt, Ivy Macaranas, Kendricka Randle, Julius Dale, Eddie Trim, and Mercy Wanjoeh of Forrest City, Cole James and Emily Smith of Wynne, Sherri Redden of Marianna, and Felecia Brown and Travian Collier of Brinkley.
The public is cordially invited, admission will be $5 and will be available at the door; EACC students are admitted free with a valid student ID. The EACC Fine Arts Center is located at 1700 Newcastle Road in Forrest City.
