WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. -- "Ten little soldier boys going out to dine. One choked his little self and then there were nine."

Mount Greylock Regional High School will present the student-directed murder mystery, "And Then There Were None" in the Mount Greylock auditorium this Friday May 5th and Saturday May 6th at 8 p.m. Tickets are $4 for students and senior citizens and $6 for adults. On Friday May 5th a dinner party will precede the play beginning at 6:30 p.m. in the Mount Greylock cafeteria for a ticket price of $15 (including both dinner and the play). Reservations are needed in advance for the dinner-please call Linda Callahan at (413) 458-9582 (ext. 162).

Come join our dinner party! A fine dining experience surrounded by 1940s entertainment-swing dance, big band music, singers, and instrumentalists! Enjoy a delicious pasta dinner provided by Eric Rock, while being introduced to mysterious guests who drop clues about the play throughout the night. Guess the murderer and his or her motive and be entered into a raffle for a grand prize.

"And Then There Were None" is a classic murder mystery written by the one and only, Agatha Christie. When the curtain rises, a curious assortment of strangers summoned as weekend guests to a private island off the coast of Devon are introduced. Their host, an eccentric millionaire unknown to all of them, is nowhere to be found. All that the guests have in common is a wicked past they're unwilling to reveal-and a secret that will seal their fate. For each has been marked for murder, and one by one they fall prey.

Sabrina Gogan, Amy Mendes, and Colin MacDonald are directing the performance and are advised by faculty member Thomas Ostheimer.
