DUMMERSTON- Vermont Theatre Company presents the comic thriller “Deathtrap,” May 17 through 26, at the Evening Star Grange.

“Deathtrap,” by playwright and author Ira Levin, best known for films based on his novels “Rosemary’s Baby,” “The Stepford Wives,” and “The Boys From Brazil,” is Broadway’s longest running comic thriller.

“Deathtrap” is the story of a famous writer of comic thrillers who tries to break out of a career slump by taking the manuscript of a former student of his and calling it his own. His diabolical plan for himself and his wife to murder the author and steal the script takes many unexpected twists along the way and poses important philosophical questions such as, “What’s the point of owning a mace if you don’t use it once in a while?”

Ben Stockman is the director, and featured in the cast are Jonny Mack, Beverly Miller, Elias Burgess, Nancy Groff, and Francis Hauert. Clark Glennon is the stage manager, Jay Gelter the set designer, Rebecka Marchese the costumer, Jerry Stockman, lighting design, Kate Milliken set decorator, and Tracy Compana is props manager.

Show dates are May 17, 18, 23, 24, and 25 at 7:30 pm, and Sunday matinees on May 19 and 26 at 3 pm. All performances are at the Evening Star Grange.

Tickets are $12 for general admission and $10 for seniors and students. Reservations are recommended and can be made by calling the VTC box office at (802) 258-1344 or emailing vtcreservations@gmail.com.
