Taree Arts Council's production, A Murder is Announced will open at the Manning Entertainment Centre on Thursday October 17.
Presenting a limited season of only five performances over four days, the play is based on the story by Agatha Christie and promises to entertain and intrigue the audience.
Miss Marple is one of the author's best known characters in her murder mysteries and Lyn Moore is enjoying her role as the super sleuth, although it hasn't come without challenges.
"Agatha Christie, while being so well known for her mysteries, presents a challenge to actors with the wordiness of her stories," she said.
Joining Lyn in the cast is Chris Alcock as Inspector Craddock, Kylie Cleaver as Letitia Blacklock, Barbara Singh as Mitzi, Lauren Green as Dora Bunner, Patricia Wolfenden as Clara Swettenham, Paul Eade as Edmund Swettenham, Maitrix Sumpner-Johnston as Julia Simmons, Kris Duggan as Patrick Simmons, Corrie O'Brien as Phillipa Haymes and Adam Duffy as Sergeant Mellors/Rudi Scherz.
Directed by Paul Addison, the script has been adapted from an Agatha Christie story by Leslie Darbon.
The action takes place in the drawing room in an early Victorian house, 'Little Paddock', in the village of Chipping Cleghorn.
An announcement in the local paper states the time and place when a murder is to occur in Miss Blacklock's house. The victim is not one of the house's several occupants, but an unexpected and unknown visitor.
Performances are Thursday October 17 at 8pm, Friday October 18 at 8pm, Saturday October 19 at 2pm and 8pm and Sunday October 20 at 2pm.
Tickets are $35 adults and $30 concession/groups of 10 plus.
