Winner! 2012 Mystery Writers of America Edgar Allen Poe Awards – Best Play!
It is December 1936 and Broadway star William Gillette, admired the world over for his leading role in the play Sherlock Holmes, has invited his fellow cast-members to his Connecticut castle for a weekend of revelry. But when one of the guests is stabbed to death, the festivities in this isolated house of tricks and mirrors quickly turn dangerous. Then it’s up to Gillette himself, as he assumes the persona of his beloved Holmes, to track down the killer before the next victim appears. The danger and hilarity are non-stop in this glittering whodunit set during the Christmas holidays.
THE GAME’S AFOOT won the Edgar Allen Poe Award (the “Edgar”), awarded by the Mystery Writers of America, as the Best Mystery Play of 2012.
All tickets are available from www.ticketpro ca, or by phone at 1-888-311-9090, or in person at Alderney Landing Theatre box office. Cash only accepted at the door, pending availability of seats.
Charity Performances Update
Dartmouth Players deeply regrets that, due to extreme financial constraints, we will be suspending our Charity Preview Program and our Scholarship Program until further notice.
Going forward, we will still be holding a Preview Night (final dress rehearsal) on the Monday immediately preceding each Opening Night. However, tickets will not be sold for these performances; admission will be on a “pay-what-you-can” basis, (suggested donation of 10.00 or more). These proceeds will go towards the “Dartmouth Players Survival Fund”, in the hope of keeping our community theatre alive and in its present location for the foreseeable future. Tickets for Opening Nights, which had previously been priced at $7.00 each, will be priced at full regular admission.
Join us for our 2014 - 2015 season!
