MURDER ON THE ORIENT EXPRESS
“And so it begins… It is clear that someone on this train committed this murder, and I will find out who it is, I promise you.”
Just after midnight, a snowdrift stops the Orient Express in its tracks. The luxurious train is surprisingly full, but by morning it is one passenger fewer. An American tycoon has been stabbed in his compartment, with the 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. Wax your mustache and get out your notebook as we go off the rails with Ken Ludwig’s spectacular adaptation of Agatha Christie’s famous mystery. It will slay you.

We have designed our new space with a state-of-the-art ventilation system, so that you can breathe easy. We have a main ventilation system that is rated at 4 tons and have added an Energy Recovery Ventilator system, which is Energy Star rated and conditions 120 cubic feet of air per minute, expelling some of the air and intaking fresh air. Both air streams run through the HEPA filter system, which removes 99% of particles as small as 0.1 microns from the air it filters. We also installed a UV anti-bacteria/virus unit rated to match our space. The UV light can help eliminate many types of fungi, bacteria, mold, germs, viruses, and pathogens. Additionally, we have installed an ionization unit, making it easier for dust, dander, pollen, bacteria and viruses to be filtered out of the air.

We humbly ask that you consider contributing to Merely Players, a 501(c) (3) organization.
As is true in theatres across the nation, ticket prices account for only about 50% of our production costs. The rest of our expenses must be met through private donations and grants.
Live theatre is a dynamic, expensive venture, and our costs keep rising. Donations are used to meet venue expenses, pay royalties, hire actors and other personnel, pay for technical elements such as scenery, costumes, and lighting, and to publicize our shows. The money we raise directly affects the quality of our productions.
Theatre adds vitality and variety to a community, and your tax-deductible donation helps to ensure that we can continue to thrive.
