Mystery looms over the members of all the theater members and all of its future watchers as “10 little soldier boys go out to dine”, where 10 go in, and only one comes out.

The 2023 Hills Theater Workshop presents the winter show “And Then There Were None”, a murder mystery, which will be shown on November 30th, December 1st, and December 2nd!

The murder mystery genre is a relatively “new” genre, going as far back as 1841. Written by Edgar Allan Poe, the first murder mystery would be “Murders in the Rue Morgue.Despite this, his story wasn’t the most popular murder mystery to have been read. In 1939, Agatha Christie, the world’s best selling author, wrote “And Then There Were None”, the best selling book in the world only surpassed by the Bible and works by Shakespeare. “And Then There Were None” is so popular that it has sold well over 2 billion copies ever since its release.

The show follows the premise of a murder mystery, where 10 people are transported to an island and have to do their best to survive against the unknown owen. Everyone suspects each other, and as people are plucked off, tensions continue to rise.

There are 11 people playing parts in the show, and each one of these parts are incredibly important as they all have their own parts to play within the show. There is Zoë  Brinner as Fred Narracott, the boatsman to the island, Adrianna Denardo as Anthony Marston, a young individual always wanting to party until the end, Jessica McMonagle as Mrs.Rogers, the butlers wife who’s rather sheepish, Bryan Cadillo as General Mackenzie, an old war general who got left behind after what he’s done, Julianna Stier as Rogers, the butler who would always stick to his duties, Gia Ciccone as Emily Brent, a religious lady constantly stung on the belief of “you get what you deserve”,  Marconi Sente as Dr. Armstrong, a doctor whose life has washed up after his past mistakes, Maddie Colucci as William Blore, a square headed flattie of a police officer who never thunk, Aiden Perez (me) as Phillip Lombard, a good man in a tight spot who’s blasted away by Vera’s charm, Fernanda Badillo as Vera Claythorne, a young lady who’s roped by Lombard’s charm, and finally Jackson Corbett as Lawrence Wargrave, an opened minded judge who always brings about justice.

The play this year was decided by Mrs. Jeronis, the Wayne Hills play director and Schuyler Colfax English teacher.

When asked about the characters and the show, this is what some members had to say:

“My character Dr. Armstrong is, as I feel, a perfect fit for me. To be honest, I kinda feel for the dude. I’m always anxious and worried about something or other so I think he fits me perfectly” says Marconi Sente, a freshman and new play member here at Wayne Hills.

“I think our director, Mrs. Jeronis, picked the perfect show for this year. Not only is it well-known, and will hopefully bring a lot of people into the audience, she cast the show perfectly by letting everyone play to their strengths, but also challenging us” says Gia Ciccone, a senior and a senior play member here at Wayne Hills.

“And Then There Were None” is going to be amazingly fun and suspenseful for others to watch, so be sure to be there to watch on November 30th, December 1st, and December 2nd!
