Twisting, turning 'Sleuth' takes stage tomorrow

Centerstage Theatre’s production of “Sleuth,” a famed thriller, will make its debut tomorrow at Knutzen Family Theater.

Scriptwriter Anthony Shaffer picked up the gauntlet laid down by Agatha Christie and took the thriller in new directions. From the moment young Milo Tindle (played by Rob McGregor in the Centerstage presentation) shows up at the house of Andrew Wyke (Jim Winkler) and announces that he intends to marry Andrew’s wife, the audience is on a roller coaster of plot twists and surprises.

Sleuth made its first appearance on the London stage in 1970, seeing instant success. Moving to Broadway, it won a Tony Award.

Other cast members in the two-plus-week run at Knutzen include Stanley Rushton, Robin Mayfieldt and Liam McNultys.

Behind the scenes are Alan Bryce, artistic director; Kate Myre, director, Craig Wollam, set designer; Akemi Hart, makeup artist; and Curtis Swanson, stage manager.

Evening show times are 8 p.m. Thursdays - Saturdays, with matinees at 2 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays.

Tickets are $12-$20 (depending on age), and $5 for kids 12 and under at matinees. Tickets can be purchased by calling the box office at 661-1444, at the theater one hour before the performance or on-line at www.centerstagetheatre.com
