Intrigue and Murder in Christie’s Mousetrap—Sept. 11

MousetrapEveryone is a suspect. Everyone has secrets. Everyone is a little bit scared.

Trinity Alumni Theatre presents Agatha Christie’s The Mousetrap August 26-28 and September 11 at 7:30 p.m. in the Marg Kallemeyn Theatre in the Art and Communication Center.

The Mousetrap is a suspenseful narrative of fear, risk, and revelation. Eight strangers are confined to a snowed-in guest house; one of them is a murderer. Over the course of the weekend, each is confronted with his or her past in an effort to identify the killer. The lines between truth and fabrication are blurred.

Tickets are $15 for adults and $10 for students and seniors. Tickets can be purchased at or at the door. All seats are general admission.

This is the second annual alumni theatre production. Last year, alumni actors pleased audiences with their performance of The Curious Savage by John Patrick.
