Mask & Mirror Community Theatre continues its ninth season with the exciting comic mystery thriller Deathtrap by Ira Levin. The show plays Saturdays at 7:30 and Sundays at 2:30 (no Friday shows) from Mar. 7 thru Mar. 29 on The Stage at Calvin Church, 10445 SW Canterbury Lane, Tigard. Tickets remain an affordable $15 Adult, $12 Seniors, Students and Military, and are now available for purchase online at www.MaskandMirror.com.

Unknown dramatist Clifford Anderson has sent his new play to award-winning Broadway author Sidney for comment – or has he? Without a success to his credit for some years, Sidney plots with his reluctant wife Myra about how best to plagiarize Deathtrap and when Clifford turns up to discuss the play with the Master events take a sinister turn. Deathtrap will keep you guessing and laughing.

Director Tony Broom says, “Sometimes a show sticks with you. While in high school I saw the film version of Deathtrap with Michael Caine and Christopher Reeve. Then I played the character Sidney a few years later, and now I finally have the chance to direct it. I feel very lucky to get to work with some actors I’ve been wanting to work with for years and also to bring some new faces to the Mask & Mirror stage. Despite its macabre subject matter, the thing that I’m enjoying most is the humor in the script. There are scares and surprises, but plenty of laughs too.”

Mask & Mirror Community Theatre is now in its ninth season of presenting high quality and affordable live theatre to the citizens of Tigard and Tualatin – using all-volunteer actors, stage crew and administrators.
