Murder and mystery in Patio Players presentation of Christie whodunit

Feb. 6, 2013

Menomonee Falls - In a lonely mansion on a secluded island, one by one, 10 people begin to reveal shocking and guilt-ridden secrets from their clouded past.

As these revelations are made, one by one, the guests are murdered.

The plot of Agatha Christie's murder mystery "And Then There Were None," captivates audiences as they try to piece together the truth behind the murders; however, equally intriguing are the character's interactions with each other. This character development can be seen first hand as the Falls Patio Players bring the mystery to the stage in five showings slated for 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday and Feb. 15, 16; and 2 p.m. Feb. 17 at the Menomonee Falls High School auditorium, W16750 Garfield Drive.

"It's a really fun script. Even if you know how it ends there are some surprises along the way," director Alan Piotrowicz said. "As much as it is a mystery, it is also a comedy of mannerisms."

Falls Patio Players is a nonprofit community theater organization that started more than 40 years ago. All proceeds made from each production go back into future performances.

Schwartz said they are continuously working to raise money for sound and lighting. At each performance of "And Then There Were None," raffle tickets will be available to win a "mystery dinner." A dozen restaurants have donated dinner certificates, each put in a gift box that have a value of $50 or more, Schwartz said.

Tickets for the play cost $15 for adults and $13 for seniors and students. They are available for purchase at

It is encouraged to purchase tickets in advance, but they will be available at the box office starting one hour before each show.
