Twists and turns abound in Northport whodunnit

Who dunnit? Northport students will sleuth onstage Saturday night to find the answer as the Northport Public School (NPS) high school drama class presents Agatha Christie’s “The Mousetrap.”

The murder mystery play, originally performed over 60 years ago, “The Mousetrap” has been hailed as the longest-running show of any kind in history and has been popular with audiences around the globe. And now, the Agatha Christie classic has hit the stage here in Leelanau County.

Set in England at Monkswell Manor, guests are trapped in the hotel as a snowstorm blankets the area. Within 24 hours, one of the guests is found murdered. They all suspect one another as the play’s characters weave their way through multiple scenarios before the killer is revealed in a twist ending.

Interested in solving the mystery?

Opening night of “The Mousetrap” is scheduled for Saturday, and a second performance will take place next Friday, May 11. Both performances will begin at 7 p.m. in the NPS auditorium. Admission is free, but donations to the high school drama club are appreciated.
