Fringe Theatre Company to perform mystery dinner theatre

Be spellbound by Agatha Christie's murder mystery play "The Mousetrap," performed by the Fort Hays State University Fringe Theatre Company beginning at 6 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 16, at the Fox Pavilion, 1202 Main.

"This is the perfect night to bring a special friend or date to join you to enjoy the evening," said Dr. Brittany Howel, associate professor of agriculture.

Initially performed as a radio play in 1952, "The Mousetrap" opens with a radio account of a woman murdered in London. The action then moves to Monkswell Manor, recently converted to an inn by Mollie and Giles Ralston as they anticipate the arrival of their first four guests. When the detective arrives, each character is scrutinized and suspected.

Tickets are available at the Memorial Union Student Service Center and Malloy Hall Box Office, from any Rotary member, or the Chamber of Commerce for $35 each. Reservations will be taken for tables of eight.

The meal will consist of your choice of honey pecan chicken, Traeger roasted sirloin beef, twice-baked potatoes, bacon-almond green beans and a mixed-greens tossed salad with choice of toppings and followed by cheesecake for dessert.

Proceeds benefit Hays Rotary Club service projects including literacy, polo plus, community parks and paint-a-thon.
