Georgetown Little Theatre In most murder mysteries, the audience can guess who committed the crime. In Georgetown Little Theatre's (GLT) upcoming production, Rehearsal For Murder, the authors have created a play with many twists and turns, pointing the audience in different directions. "In a mystery, the audience should never know what's coming next," playwright, Alex Dennison tells the theatre folk he has gathered to help him prepare his next play by reading selected scenes from the play. Where this will lead to only the playwright knows, or does he? A little bit of greed and fear can make the simplest actions the most deadly. Rehearsal For Murder was written by Richard Levinson and William Link as a television movie in 1982 starring Robert Preston and Lynne Redgrave. It won the Edgar Allan Poe Award for Best Television Feature or Mini Series in 1983. Authors Richard Levinson and William Link are best known for writing the Columbo series, and scripts for Ellery Queen and Murder She Wrote. D.D. Brooke adapted the television script to a stage play making a few changes along the way.

"All for the better," according to GLT director Virginia Bancur. "The concept of using an empty theatre stage as the set peaked my interest immediately. The acting ability of the cast has to be very strong to make the audience believe what they are seeing and hearing. I believe we have such a cast, who are up to the challenge. Everyone I know who has read the play has fallen in love with it. We hope the audience will to." Bancur has previously directed The Shadow Walkers by Brian Tremblay and A Case For Two Detectives for Georgetown Little Theatre. Primarily a stage manager, she has produced for GLT and is vice-president of the community theatre group. The cast includes GLT members John Wallace, Jessica Lee, Lisa Rasanan, Gary McIlravey, with newcomers Christina Noguera, Patti Caruso, Brandon Laxton, Marcel Jordan and Dwayne Mailman. Three members of the GLT Youth Company, Tyler Buist, Alexis Eastman and Adam Norton, are also in the show. Rehearsal For Murder will be presented at the John Elliott Theatre, February 8-10, February 14-17. This would make an excellent evening out for Valentine's Day. For tickets to the performances, call the Box Office, 905-877-3700.
