WCHS Warhawk Theatre presents And Then There Were None Oct. 6-8
Westerville Central High School’s Thespian Troupe 6750 is kicking off its 2023-24 season with “And Then There Were None,” a murder mystery students hope audience members will try to figure out before the end of the play.
“This show is really fun,” said sophomore Olive Ericson, who plays Vera Claythorne. “I hope (the audience) gets a thrill and they just really enjoy themselves with a whodunnit.”
Show dates and times include 7 p.m. Oct. 6 and 7; 2 p.m. Oct. 7 and Oct. 8. Seats are $10. Tickets are available on the Warhawks Theatre website.
The production marks the debut of WCHS’ new theatre director Meredith Casto, who assumed the role after Stephanie Matushoneck stepped down from the position after six years. Casto selected the play for the school’s fall production to give students another theatrical experience. The play is set in the 1930s and students would have to perform in British accents. A murder mystery ahead of the Halloween season also appealed to her.
“I like a spooky story this time of year,” she said.
Adapted from Agatha Christie’s novel, And Then There Were None tells the story of 10 strangers summoned to a remote island — all of whom are guilty of past crimes that went unpunished by the law. Soon, they start dying one at a time, and the remaining guests realize that the murderer is one of their own.
