Tonight: Lee Street theatre presents Ira Levin’s classic thriller Deathtrap

Jan. 23-25 and Jan. 30-Feb.1 at Lee Street theatre, 329 N. Lee St.

This January, experience twists and turns with Lee Street theatre’s upcoming classic thriller, “Deathtrap.” This classic thriller will run on the Lee Street boards January 23 – 25 and Jan 30 – February 1 at 7:30 pm. Tickets may be purchased in advance online at leestreet.org, or by calling the Box Office at 704-310-5507 Monday – Friday between 1-5 p.m.

Ira Levin’s 1978 work, “Deathtrap” has puzzled, charmed, and amused audiences for 22 years with its neverending twists and turns of devilish cleverness and often sudden shocks that hold audiences spellbound until the very last moment! It tells the story of once-successful playwright Sidney Bruhl (played by Rod Oden) who is undergoing writer’s block on a new, successful play — until he receives a package from his former student Clifford Anderson (played by Michael Meres).

Inside is an unproduced script that’s better than anything Sidney has written in years. At the urging of his wife, Myra (played by Beth Bentley) Sidney undertakes a plan to lure Clifford to his country home, murder him and then announce the script as his own work. Along the way we also stumble into the nosey-neighbor, psychic Helga Ten Dorp (played by Lori Van Wallandael) and Sidney’s lawyer and friend Porter Milgrim (played by Shawn Van Wallandael).

The production is directed by Lena Olson, supported by a production team including Ada Valdez, Diane Draper, Ariel Stansell, Dominic Masotti*, and Lucas Barrick. This show also includes CataLST interns Dominic Massoti as Co-Scenic Designer and Kelly Sandoval as the Props Master and Artisan. Lee Street is very proud to continue partnering with Catawba College Theatrical Arts Department with the CataLST Internship Program. This program allows Catawba Theatre Arts students the opportunity to professional develop work and opportunities by working at Lee Street, while Lee Street gets the incredible opportunity and benefit of working with these talented young professionals.

Please note: This show does contain adult language and themes, and it is recommended for audiences 21 and over. Visit leestreet.org or call 704-310-5507 for tickets to “Deathtrap” (and plan to bring your magnifying glass!).
