Christie's thrilling whodunit will be getting a fresh staging on the Mainstage to start 2015 off right. Murder on the Nile promises a host of colorful characters and all the twists and turns of a classic Christie to keep you guessing to the final shattering climax.

"This is the first show of the year for the Mainstage and what a way to come out of the starting gate," said Andrew Vonderschmitt, producing artistic director, "Who doesn't love a good mystery?"

Is there any better way to celebrate a marriage than a romantic honeymoon aboard a paddle steamer cruising down the Nile? There must be, especially if the bride ends up dead and the groom grievously wounded! In this classic by the modern mistress of mystery, we travel through the Dark Continent along with master sleuth, Canon Pennefather, as he uncovers an audacious conspiracy and brings the criminals to justice. Passion, jealousy, infidelity, and murder, make this a honeymoon cruise you will not soon forget. Play along and see if you can solve the crime before they are revealed.
