Agatha Christie’s ‘The Mousetrap’ to capture Flagstaff and NAU audiences

Props being used for "The Mousetrap"

Starting Feb. 23, Northern Arizona University’s Department of Theatre will present Agatha Christie’s “The Mousetrap,” one of the most popular murder mysteries and longest-running plays in theatre history.

“’The Mousetrap’ is a delightful murder mystery for all ages,” said professor and director Bob Yowell. “This play is a comedy/drama, and the characters are eccentric and enjoyable. The audience certainly will be guessing ‘who done it’.”

The production features eight student actors with 30 students working behind the scenes on the set, lighting, costumes, props and sound design to bring the story to life.

Performances will be held in the Studio Theater at 7:30 p.m. Feb. 23-24 and Mar. 1-3 and at 2 p.m. Feb. 25 and Mar. 4. Tickets are $14 for adults, $12 for seniors and $8 for youth and NAU students.

Tickets can be purchased through the Central Ticketing Office website or by calling (928) 523-5661. For information about parking for weekday performances, visit the guest parking website.
