Niagara Gazette — A murder mystery dinner theater "The Mouse Trap" by Agatha Christie will be held from 6 to 10 p.m. Oct. 6. 

This Agatha Christie whodunit is a perfect way to celebrate the season and to help the NACC. The Mousetrap is the longest running play in the world. It opened in London in 1952 and has been running continuously ever since. 

The play is known for its twist ending which at the end of every performance the audience is asked not to reveal: A snowstorm. A guesthouse in the country. Eight people trapped inside. One of them is a murderer. Giles and Mollie have just opened Monkswell Manor, welcoming their first guests while a blizzard rages outside. While the snow falls outside, the mystery begins inside when Sergeant Trotter arrives to warn them all of a potential murderer among them. With a cast of characters full of secrets and intrigue, enjoy this dark twist of an old classic. 

The cost is $39 a person for an all inclusive dinner and theater ticket, including tax and tip.

Cash bar will be available. The performance will be held in the NACC Woodbox Theater and dining will take place in the Grand Hall with themed table settings.

Seating is limited to 72 patrons and there are only 50 seats left. Call the NACC at 282-7530 or go to www.thanacc.org to order tickets on Paypal.

"The Mousetrap," is directed by Gloria Mc Nitt and features Paul Gadawski, Sam Granieri, Drew Krause, Michael Lombardo, Chris Mongielo, Rhonda Pizzimenti, Robert Priest and Andrea Tomalla. 

The play, presented by Westerndoor Playhouse, opens for regular performances at 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays through Oct. 7, except for the Oct. 6 dinner theater-fundraiser, with matinees at 2:30 p.m. Sunday and Oct. 7 at the NACC, 1201 Pine Ave. in Niagara Falls.
