'Ten Little Indians'
Few things are as spooky as a murder mystery in the woods, so be prepared for thrills and chills when Agatha Christie's Ten Little Indians opens on Tuesday at Totem Pole Playhouse, located in Pennsylvania's Caledonia State Park. Last produced at this summer stock theater in 1968, Ten Little Indians is set in a country house where eight guests are mysteriously summoned by an unseen host and greeted by a pair of baffled servants. The vintage whodunit is staged by Totem Pole's artistic director, Baltimorean Carl Schurr, and the cast of serially expiring characters includes Totem Pole veteran and fellow Baltimorean Wil Love.
The theater's season will continue with My Three Angels (July 19-31), a classic family comedy by Sam and Bella Spewack; Proof (Aug. 2-14), Everyman Theatre's 2004 production of David Auburn's Pulitzer Prize-winning drama; and Mixed Emotions (Aug. 16-28), a romantic comedy by Richard Baer.
