An evening of mystery… • AHS Drama to present Christie tale

Artesia High School theatre students practice their lines during a dress rehearsal last week for their upcoming production of Agatha Christie’s “And Then There Were None.” Theatre teacher and director Eugene Irby said he chose the play to showcase the students’ talents a bit more. “This is so different from the comedies we usually do,” Irby said. “It was time to do more serious work, and the students really like it. Anyone who comes to see the production will be able to enjoy a good, old-fashioned murder mystery.” The play tells the tale of 10 strangers marooned on an island, each with a guilty conscience. As they begin to die one by one, the suspense and excitement build for the audience. Students in Irby’s drama class and Ben White’s technical theatre class put together the set and all props. The play will be presented at 7 p.m. Nov. 13 and 15 at the AHS Auditorium. Admission is $5 at the door. Liana Swarengin - Daily Press
