Agatha Christie

AND THEN THERE WERE NONE Directed by Tony Elliot

BY AGATHA CHRISTIE

November 9 - 11, 2017 | 8 P.M. November 12, 2017 | 2 P.M. Clair Performance Hall | WINTER CENTER Nobody cooks up a murder mystery better than the “Queen of Crime” or, as she preferred, the “Dutchess of Death” Agatha Christie! Here is the recipe: Bring ten very unique men and women on a remote island. Add a dash of bad weather thus isolating them in a large, mysterious house. Slowly fold in bits of information, which identify each person as a potential victim or murderer. Sprinkle in the verses of a classically creepy children’s rhyme. Stir vigorously and allow the bodies to pile up. The result is an evening of deadly fun, as only Mrs. Christie could cook up. This never gets old! Sponsored by Millersville University and the MU Student Senate. “And Then There Were None” is presented by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH, INC.

RADIUM GIRLS By D.W. Gregory Guest Directed February 23 - 24, 2018 & March 1 - 3, 2018 | 8 P.M. February 25, 2018 & March 4, 2018 | 2 P.M. Rafters Theatre | DUTCHER HALL In 1926, radium was a miracle cure, Madame Curie an international celebrity and “glow-in-the-dark” watches the latest rage – until the girls who painted the dials began to fall ill with a mysterious disease. Based on true events, the story focuses on the journey of one of the girls as she fights for her day in court. This moving and inspiring play offers an unflinching look at the American obsession with health, wealth and the commercialization of science. PG-13. Produced by special arrangement with THE DRAMATIC PUBLISHING COMPANY of Woodstock, Illinois.

In the sky, life is perfect, but on the ground she is surrounded by people who are so much less than perfect. Her soon-to-be ex-husband is a charming alcoholic, her roommate is a glutton, she’s trapped daily on a helicopter with an envious co-worker and her blind dates are disasters. It takes her dying brother to make her see that pride is the deadliest of sins, and it takes an Act of God to bring her back down to Earth. For Mature Audiences, PG-13. SIN is presented by arrangement with Dramatists Play Service, Inc., New York. n

With state of the art surround sound, Steinman Hall at the Ware Center is the place to discover and renew your love of film with our On Screen/In Person and National Theatre Live selections. Films start at 7 P.M.

ON SCREEN IN PERSON $7 ADULTS | $5 SENIORS & STUDENTS

Experience documentary films on a whole new level. After considerable popularity and praise from the Mid-Atlantic Arts Association for our community engagement, the Ware Center proudly announces its second year as one of only a handful of sites selected to present this provocative series which tours new, independent American films and their respective filmmakers (chosen from an annual nationwide open call for entries) to communities across the mid-Atlantic region. The evening begins with a community activity or panel discussion at 6:15 P.M., the film screens at 7 P.M., and is followed by a Q&A with the filmmaker. On Screen/In Person is made possible through the generous support of the National Endowment for the Arts Regional Touring Program.

DEEJ Robert Rooy, filmmaker Wednesday, September 13, 2017 DEEJ is the story of DJ Savarese (Deej), a gifted, young writer and an advocate for nonspeaking autistics. As a child, he was trapped in a silent world, abused in foster care and written off as “retarded”. Now, as a high school student dreaming of college, he confronts the terrors of his past, stubborn obstacles to inclusion and the often paralyzing beauty of his own senses.

OIL & WATER Francine Strickwerda & Laurel Spellman Smith, co-directors Thursday, October 12, 2017 Oil & Water is the true story of two boys coming of age as they each confront one of the world’s worst toxic disasters. Hugo and David were born on opposite ends of the oil pipeline. Hugo comes to America to fight for the survival of his Cofan tribe in the Ecuadorian Amazon, while David goes to Ecuador to launch the world’s first company to certify oil as “fair trade.”

MIND/GAME: THE UNQUIET JOURNEY OF CHAMIQUE HOLDSCL AW Richard Goldsmith, director Thursday, November 9, 2017 Mind/Game tells the compelling story of Chamique Holdsclaw – from her rise to WNBA stardom to her struggle with mental illness and the strength she called on to speak about it. The film intimately chronicles Holdsclaw’s athletic accomplishments and personal setbacks, and her decision, despite public stigma, to become an outspoken mental health advocate.

LIT TLE STONES Sophia Cruz, director Wednesday, February 28, 2018 From a graffiti artist speaking out against domestic violence in the favelas of Brazil to a dancer rehabilitating sex-trafficking survivors in India, Little Stones profiles four women artists/social activists, each of whom is contributing a stone to the mosaic of the woman’s movement through her art. Filmed in Senegal, Kenya, Brazil, Germany, India and the USA.

BIG SONIA Leah Warshawski, director Wednesday, March 21, 2018 For years, Sonia Warshawski (90) has been an inspirational public speaker at schools and prisons, where her stories of surviving the Holocaust as a teenager have inspired countless people who once felt their own traumas would leave them broken forever. But when Sonia is served an eviction notice for her iconic tailor shop (in a dead mall), she’s confronted with an agonizing decision: either open up a new shop, or retire. For a woman who admits she stays busy “to keep the dark parts away,” facing retirement dredges up fears she’d long forgot she had, and her horrific past resurfaces.

GHOST TOWN TO HAVANA Eugene Corr, director Wednesday, April 25, 2018 Ghost Town to Havana is a heartbreaking, funny and inspirational story that follows the lives of two extraordinary youth baseball coaches: Nicolás Reyes, a 61 year old Afro-Cuban coaching in Havana, and Roscoe Bryant, a 46 year old African-American coaching in the troubled Oakland neighborhood called Ghost Town, and what happens when these men bring their two teams together.

NATIONAL THEATRE LIVE $10 GENERAL ADMISSION

National Theatre Live is a groundbreaking project that has, since 2009, broadcast more than forty world-class productions from London to film venues around the world. Each broadcast is filmed in front of a live audience in the theatre, with cameras carefully positioned throughout the auditorium to ensure audiences get a “best seat in the house” view that varies with each production.

PETER PAN

HEDDA GABLER

Tuesday, November 21, 2017 All children, except one, grow up…. Captured live at the National Theatre, a recorded performance of JM Barrie’s much-loved tale screens in cinemas. When Peter Pan, leader of the Lost Boys, loses his shadow, headstrong Wendy helps him to reattach it. In return, she is invited to Neverland, where Tinker Bell the fairy, Tiger Lily and the vengeful Captain Hook await. A riot of magic, music and make-believe ensues. Sally Cookson (NT Live: Jane Eyre) directs this wondrously inventive production, a co-production with Bristol Old Vic theatre.

Thursday, February 1, 2018 Just married. Buried alive. Hedda longs to be free.... Hedda and Tesman have just returned from their honeymoon and the relationship is already in trouble. Trapped but determined, Hedda tries to control those around her, only to see her own world unravel. Tony Award-winning director Ivo van Hove (A View from the Bridge at the Young Vic Theatre) returns to National Theatre Live screens with a modern production of Ibsen’s masterpiece. Ruth Wilson (Luther, The Affair, Jane Eyre) plays the title role in a new version by Patrick Marber (Notes on a Scandal, Closer). n Peter Pan
