Sussex Central presenting ‘Murder on the Orient Express’


GEORGETOWN — Sussex Central High School’s Take Two Drama Club will present Agatha Christie’s “Murder on the Orient Express,” adapted by Ken Ludwig, starting Friday.

“This play is a sly and inventive adaptation of the Agatha Christie mystery classic,” said the group’s adviser and drama teacher David Warick. “Junior Spencer Camlin expertly portrays the finicky but brilliant Belgian detective, Hercule Poirot, to maximum comic effect. I can’t wait for audiences to see him.”

The show, staged by permission of Concord Theatricals, runs Friday at 7 p.m. and Saturday at 3 and 7 p.m. at the school’s Premiere Center for the Performing Arts, 26026 Patriots Way.

The Saturday afternoon production follows Sussex Central’s graduation.

Tickets are available at the door for $15 or at our.show/glev1a9yg1 for $12. Online payment is preferred, so there is a discount for those tickets. Group sales are available, and no one will be turned away for an inability to pay, though donations will be accepted.

Refreshments will be available at separate costs.

“These students are some of the best performers in the school, and I am eagerly anticipating the community discovering them,” Mr. Warick added.

Take Two is a nonprofit drama boosters organization that supports the production of plays for the students of Sussex Central and the surrounding community. Proceeds go toward future shows and to supporting students studying and creating theater.
