Wax your mustache and hold onto your passport as the Amarillo Little Theatre presents the regional premiere of Agatha Christie’s Murder on the Orient Express as the fourth Mainstage production of the season. From the same author as ALT’s fan favorite Baskerville, this popular mystery adaptation of Agatha Christie’s suspenseful masterpiece comes to life in this stylish production.

            All aboard! The exotic Orient Express is hurtling down the tracks…to a murder! Agatha Christie’s Murder on the Orient Express is a plot-twist masterpiece that has thrilled mystery lovers from television, radio, and film. Audiences now have the chance to experience this lush comedy live onstage. The famous novel is widely regarded as one of Agatha Christie’s greatest literary achievements. First published in 1934, the stylish, suspenseful murder mystery about an unlikely cast of potential suspects – including a colonel, a princess and a countess, all with alibis – trapped aboard the luxurious Orient Express during a snowstorm features one of the most iconic fictional detectives of all time – Belgian private detective Hercule Poirot. Just after midnight, a snowdrift stops the Orient Express in its tracks. The luxurious train is surprisingly full for the time of the year, but by the morning it is one passenger fewer. An American tycoon lies dead in his compartment, stabbed multiple times, his door locked from the inside. Isolated and with a killer in their midst, the passengers rely on detective Hercule Poirot to identify the murderer – in case he or she decides to strike again.

            ALT has assembled a talented array of suspects for this production mixed with ALT veterans and newcomers. Performers include Michael Newman as renowned detective Hercule Poirot, Rob Attaway as Michel the Conductor, Brooks Boyett as Samuel Ratchett, Mallory Corona as  Mary Debenham, Jax Ebertas Hector MacQueen, Jeremy Hernandez as the Head Waiter, Carrie Huckabay as Helen Hubbard, Jenny Morgan as Greta Ohlsson, Sarah Olson as Countess Andrenyi, Sean Reneau as  Colonel Arbuthnot, Melanie Sanders as Princess Dragomiroff and Michael Stafford as Monsieur Bouc. Understudies for the production include Kendall Carnahan, Jackie Llewellyn and Jeffrey Pickens. Artistic Director for this production is Jason Crespin with Ryce Garren serving as Assistant Director and Dennis Humphrey and Blake Nester as Production Assistants.
