The Newtowne Players will perform “Deathtrap” by Ira Levin Thursdays through Sundays, Aug. 2 through 18.
“Deathtrap” combines thrills and laughter. The play is about Sidney Bruhl, writer of Broadway thrillers, who is struggling to overcome a dry spell that has resulted in a string of failures and a shortage of funds. Bruhl is prepared to go to any lengths to improve his fortunes. A possible break in Bruhl’s fortune occurs when he receives a script from a student in the seminar he has been conducting at a nearby college — a thriller he recognizes immediately as a potential Broadway hit.
Thursday, Friday and Saturday performances start at 8 p.m.; Sunday shows begin at 3:30 p.m. All performances are held at Three Notch Theatre on 21744 South Coral Drive in Lexington Park. Tickets are $15 for adults and $12 for students, senior citizens (age 65 and older) and the military. Thursday shows are $10 general admission. Group rates are available for groups of 10 or more. Light refreshments and beverages are available for purchase at the theater.
