"Murder" to Take Place at Sandy Hook's Post Theater
Contact: Soar Productions, 732-471-8268
Soar Productions presents "Murder On the Nile," a play by Agatha Christie, at Sandy Hook's historic Post Theater. Opening night on Friday, July 23 begins at 8 PM with a champagne toast.
The Post Theater first opened for Army personnel at Sandy Hook in 1933. Over the years it has been renovated, including full accessibility for people with disabilities. Yet the theater retains its historic charm.
"Murder On the Nile" follows honeymooners on a cruise down the Nile that turns dark with intrigue and, yes, murder. Audience members can play "Guess the Murder" to win tickets for future Soar Productions.
Performances are Friday and Saturday, July 23-24, and Friday and Saturday, July 30-31. All performances start at 8 PM.
Tickets are $20 for general admission and $18 for seniors and students. Reservations are recommended. Call 732-471-8268 or contact Mary or Moe Rios of Soar Productions for more information.
