MSU BILLINGS NEWS SERVICES —The drama committee of Associated Students of Montana State University Billings and the MSU Billings Department of Communication and Theatre continues the presentation of the Agatha Christie murder mystery “And Then There Were None” this weekend and again on Nov. 21-22.


The drama committee's student actors will perform the full stage version featuring an ending not seen in live theatre.


Opening weekend performances continue tonight and Saturday and then again the weekend of Nov. 21-22 in the MSU Billings Petro Theatre on the university’s main campus, 1500 University Drive. Tickets are $10 each and $5 for students senior citizens. Admission is free for MSU Billings students. The curtain goes up at 7 p.m. for each performance.


In “And Then There Were None,” a curious assortment of strangers is summoned as weekend guests to a private island. Their host, an eccentric millionaire unknown to any of them, is nowhere to be found. All the guests have in common is a wicked past that none of them are willing to reveal — and a secret that will seal their fate. Each has been marked for murder and one by one they begin to fall prey to an unseen hand.


As the only people on the island, unable to leave and unable to call for help, they know that the only suspects are among their number. And only the dead are above suspicion.


“And Then There Were None” is directed by Zachariah Carleton and stars Philip Johnson, Micheal Koppenhaver, Ryan Lofgren, Cydney Mann, and Trent Steinbrink. Crew members include assistant directors Sarah Benson and Toby Walker; technical director Paul Jangula and drama advisor Randy Pugh.
