‘Something’s Afoot’ playing through April 24

By Staff | Apr 8, 2010

Special to the islander Madison Mitchell, Kay Francis and Elizabeth Urbanczyk in a scene from “Something’s Afoot.”

Something is afoot at The Herb Strauss Schoolhouse Theater.

The murder mystery musical “Something’s Afoot” is now playing through April 24. Join artistic director Victor Legarreta and his zany cast of actors as they lead the audience through a hysterical whodunit inspired by Agatha Christie where everyone is a suspect – and a victim!

Schoolhouse newcomers Kevin T. Murphy and Matt Reed join alumni actors Miguel Cintron (“Funny Money,” “Every Christmas Story Ever Told”), James Lane (“Unnecessary Farce,” “Out of Order”), Kevin Rose (“Lovely Night”), Elizabeth Urbanczyk (“Lovely Night,” “Fly Me to the Moon”), Rachel Miller (“We Love a Piano”), Kay Francis (“Unnecessary Farce”), marketing director Madison Mitchell (“Caught in the Net,” “Plaza Suite”) and Victor Legarreta (“Run for Your Wife,” “Fly Me to the Moon”) in “Something’s Afoot,” the last show of The Schoolhouse’s regular 2009-2010 season.

Six guests are invited to spend what appears to be a marvelous weekend on an isolated English island. They quickly learn that their host has been murdered shortly after their arrival. Things go from bad to worse as a severe storm cuts off their communication with the mainland and the guests (along with the servants and a wayward college student) find their own lives threatened. One by one they begin to get picked off as they scramble to find out who the murderer is. Who will survive? Who will be next? Who is the culprit?

“Something’s Afoot” runs Tuesdays through Saturdays at 8 p.m. until April 24.

The Herb Strauss Schoolhouse Theater is located at 2200 Periwinkle Way, Sanibel. Call the Box Office for tickets at (239)472-6862.

“Something’s Afoot” is graciously sponsored by Congress Jewelers.
