Smithtown set for murderously funny evenings

March 25, 2014 by  

‘Dial “M” for Murder’, a main stage production, forms part of the Smithtown Center for the Performing Arts 2014 lineup and can be seen until the end of this week.

In this play, the main character is attempting to find ways to collect an inheritance using blackmail and a cunning persona. With the story written by Frederick Knott, brochure printing and poster printing were most likely used to share information about this production with people from this region.

The play tells of Tony Wendice, an ex-tennis pro, who is plotted to have his wealthy wife murdered in order to collect her inheritance. As he plots, he discovers that his wife is having an affair with a man named Mark Halliday and goes out of his way to come up with the perfect plan to have her killed. He enlists the help of an old friend, using blackmail, to do the actual murder. Through a series of mishaps, however, the murder goes awry.

Tickets for this production cost $35 per adult and $20 per student or matinee performance. It will be on stage at 8:00 pm every night until this Saturday, and will conclude with a 3:00 pm Sunday performance.
