‘Mystery at The Manor’ at The Playhouse
BELFAST – Detective Bradley Baxter (Nathan Waldron) is here to solve the Mystery of the Disappearing Diamonds at The Playhouse in a comedy by Natasha L. Cederberg. Presented by The Playhouse Youth Theater Company on June 9, 10 and 14, 15, 16, and 17; Thursday, Friday and Saturday at 7:30 p.m., and Sunday Matinees at 4 p.m. Tickets are $5. Pay at the door.
When Lady White’s (Ruby Holbrook) diamond necklace disappears after a dinner party, a police detective is called in to find out where the prized possession has gone. The case seems simple enough to Lady White’s husband (Sam Potter) and daughter (Jane Rubin-Irish), but when bumbling detective Bradley Baxter arrives and sends the household into disorder and frustration, the case becomes anything but simple. Neighbors are invited back for questioning and not allowed to leave; accusations fly left and right; and Detective Baxter’s misunderstandings multiply as he struggles to solve the mystery.
Directed by Mary Weaver. The Playhouse, 107 Church Street, is an intimate theater with limited seating; call 338-5777 for reservations.
