Caught up in 'The Mousetrap'


January 08, 1998|By J. Wynn Rousuck

The Spotlighters Theatre launches the new year with an old chestnut -- Agatha Christie's "The Mousetrap," opening tomorrow. This classic whodunit has been running on London's West End for more than 40 years. But since audiences must swear at the end never to reveal the solution, if you haven't seen it, you'll never know.

An ideal winter mystery, "The Mousetrap" is set in motion when a snowstorm strands a group of strangers in a boarding house where a murder takes place. Bob Russell directs the Spotlighters cast, headed by Joe Goodrick as the detective and Greg Parente and Kara Jackson as the newly married couple who run the boarding house and suddenly find themselves suspected of murder.

Show times at the Spotlighters, 817 St. Paul St., are 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays and 2 p.m. Sundays, through Feb. 1. Tickets are $10. Call 410-752-1225.
