Chautauqua Playhouse opened the thriller “Rehearsal for Murder” by D. D. Brooke, adapted from the teleplay by Richard Levinson and William Link.

At its opening night, exactly a year ago and in this same theatre, the beautiful leading lady, who was also the playwright’s fiancée, was murdered! As these people start with the new play, startling connections to the murder begin to unfold. The growing tension reaches the boiling point with surprising revelations, countered by others even more surprising. The dazzling, yet basically logical twists build to a climax and solution that are theatrically stunning.

Chautauqua’s production of “Rehearsal for Murder” is directed by Jon Jackson and features a cast of 14 local actors. Set design is by Rodger Hoopman with costumes by Eileen Beaver and lighting design by Don Myers.

The show will run on Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 2 p.m. through November 18. All performances will be held at the Chautauqua Playhouse, 5325 Engle Road in the La Sierra Community Center in Carmichael. Admission is $19 general and $17 students, seniors and SARTA members.

Information and tickets are available through the Chautauqua Playhouse website at cplayhouse.org or call the box office at (916) 489-7529 during business hours.
