At 5:30 p.m. on Friday, April 20 and Saturday, April 21 the Upper School Community Service Club will be holding a pasta dinner in the Dining Commons to benefit The National Center for Missing & Exploited Children/NY Regional Office.
Following dinner on both April 20 and 21, Upper School students will perform Mousetrap at 7 p.m. in the Curtis Performance Center. This hit show is about a group of strangers stranded in a boarding house during a snowstorm, one of whom is a murderer. The suspects include the newly married couple who run the house, and the suspicions that are in their minds nearly wreck their perfect marriage. Others are a woman with a curious background, an architect who seems better equipped to be a chef, a retired Army major, a man who claims his car has overturned in a drift, and a jurist who makes life miserable for everyone. Into their midst comes a policeman, traveling on skis. He no sooner arrives, than the jurist is killed. Two down, and one to go. To get to the rationale of the murderer's pattern, the policeman probes the background of everyone present, and rattles a lot of skeletons. A famous Agatha Christie switch finish! Chalk up another superb intrigue for the foremost mystery writer of her time.
Tickets are $10 per person for dinner and the show, or $5 per person for the show only.
