Clayton Community Theatre will conclude its 24th season with Murder on the Nile by the great mystery writer Agatha Christie, directed by Nada Vaughn.
Love, money, meddling, politics, betrayal, and violence are all on the itinerary in this international whodunit romp, Murder on the Nile, by master of mystery Agatha Christie. Heiress Kay Mostyn and her new husband, Simon, relish having it all: youth, good looks and wealth. They embark on their grand honeymoon journey down the Nile River for a euphoric start to their new life together. But things quickly become very complicated, and nothing is quite as it seems. The play Murder on the Nile is based on Christie’s 1937 novel, “Death on the Nile.” It was first produced in Scotland in 1944 at the Dundee Repertory Theatre, under the title Hidden Horizon, and in 1946 had its London premiere at the Ambassadors Theatre in the West End.
Clayton Community Theatre was founded in 1998. CCT’s purpose is to provide a vehicle for all members of our community to be involved in the production of top quality live theatre. Through its annual productions and program of community outreach, CCT has involved hundreds of individuals in productions that have played to consistently enthusiastic reviews and crowded houses. CCT believes that our successful history as a theatre company has proven that there is an important place in our community for a volunteer theatre company that is open to all and driven by a commitment to excellence.
