Town and Country kicks off haunting season with mystery


Town & Country Players presents the classic production of Agatha Christie’s “Murder on the Nile” during the month of October.

The show opens Oct. 4 and runs weekends through Oct. 19, at the theater on Route 263 in Buckingham.

Agatha Christie’s “Murder on the Nile” was written in 1944 and is based on her 1937 novel “Death on the Nile.”

The story is centered on the beautiful and wealthy Kay Ridgeway played by Brianna Lynn (Schwartzy in “25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee”), as she embarks on her Nile river cruise honeymoon with her new husband Simon Mostyn played by Brian Keller.

Trouble ensues when the couple learns Simon’s ex-girlfriend and Kay’s former best friend, Jacqueline de Severac played by Brittany Delaware, is on board. Like any good murder mystery, someone ends up dead, there is a full cast of interesting plausible suspects and the fun ensues in figuring out whodunnit.

Director David Swartz, a veteran of the stage, is making his directorial debut at Town & Country Players with this show.

Curtain time is 8 p.m. for Thursday, Friday and Saturday evening shows and 2 p.m. for Sunday matinees. For information, and to order tickets, visit or call 800-838-3006. Tickets are $20.
