A murder-mystery

Directed by Steve Lemenille
Produced by Kay Macrae

And Then There Were None

Ten strangers are trapped on an island. One by one they are accused of murder; one by one they start to die. In this superlative mystery statuettes of little soldier boys on the mantel fall to the floor and break one by one as those in the house succumb to a diabolical avenger. A mysterious voice accuses each of having gotten away with murder, and then one drops dead...one down and nine to go!

Though this is her first time performing on stage at WCP with Director Steve L. at the helm, this is her second time working with the director. The first time being as part of the "silent majority" in TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD -- but this time in a speaking role! This is Ms. Roberts' 36th credited role which includes various children's productions, musicals and comedies in numerous local NJ community theaters.

A special thanks to everyone and to her special and supportive fan club of Stuart and Alberta.

(Costumes) I’m thrilled with the opportunity to work on this production. My personal goal is to make sure that the actors are comfortable and confident in their appearance on stage. I started working on costumes at the Westfield Community Theater in 2009 with their production of Little Mary Sunshine. At this point I fell in love with costuming. I was asked back to the theater and subsequently invited as the Chairperson of Costumes. I have great respect for the Director and his visions; they inspire me. I thank the production team for their faith in my ideas and their respect for my opinion. And especially my daughter for all the late hours, help and support.
