Eight people and two house servants have been invited to an island off the coast of Devon, England but none of them seem to know why they are there or who invited them.

A thrilling murder mystery based off of the novel Ten Little Indians, by Agatha Christe, was once again brought to life by the Schaumburg Theatre Department. As always, the fall play was directed by Jamie Barrett, Lauren Scislowicz and  student directed by senior Emma Robie.

Barrett attributes the plays success to the cast and crew relationship.

Frome the technical crew to production crew to actors to theatre guides, each group ‘acted well its part,’ and their skills combined to produce a dynamic and strong performance,” Barrett stated.

The 90-minute play featured returning members: seniors, Elena Mitchell as Vera Claythorne, Colin McGonagle as William Blore, juniors, David Kessler as Philip Lombard, Cameron Kidd as Emily Brent, Adam Stieber as Doctor Armstrong and sophomore Aeden Humphrey as Thomas Rodgers.

With beautifully constructed set designed to mirror an English manor and built under the supervision of applied tech teacher Jay Sullivan, the play enfolded in three acts which follow a chilling nursery rhyme of ten little soldiers boys who die one by one.  As each “soldier” dies, one porcelain piece on the mantel breaks and a guest dies according to the ten line rhyme.

This is the first mystery the SHS theatre department has performed in 5+ years, and it was a great experience for new actors and veterans alike,” Elena Mitchell stated. “Audience members are pulled into our world as they’re left with a cliffhanger ending.”

Making their SHS Theatre debuts were sophomores Adrian Chandra as Judge Wargrave, Katie Colby as Ann Marston, Lana Heyasat as Fred Narracott, Jericho Dizon as General Mackenzie, and freshman Nicole Vela as Ethel Rodgers.
