I know you got the announcement in your inbox, but pardon my words when I say, “So what, it bears repeating. The more publicity, the better.” Besides, this blog can reach out to more folks beyond the HWC circle. Without too much editing, here’s a reconstruction of Kathryn’s email:
Loop Players’ production of
Agatha Christie’s The Mousetrap
Oct. 26 – Nov. 5
The English, Speech and Theatre Department’s Loop Players are excitedly preparing for the upcoming production of Agatha Christie’s The Mousetrap. Below is a Press Release with a brief synopsis, dates and times, and admission prices. Hope you can see the show! If you do, please do not divulge the ending of this whodunit. 🙂
The author comes forth with another hit about a group of strangers stranded in a boarding house during a snow storm, one of whom is a murderer. The suspects include the newly married couple who run the house, and the suspicions that are in their minds nearly wreck their perfect marriage. Others are a spinster with a curious background, an architect who seems better equipped to be a chef, a retired Army major, a strange little man who claims his car has overturned in a drift, and a jurist who makes life miserable for everyone. Into their midst comes a policeman, traveling on skis. He no sooner arrives, than the jurist is killed. Two down, and one to go. To get to the rationale of the murderer’s pattern, the policeman probes the background of everyone present, and rattles a lot of skeletons. Another famous Agatha Christie switch finish! Chalk up another superb intrigue for the foremost mystery writer of her time.

Two questions Kathryn:
1. Is the student discount valid for ANY student from ANY academic institution? I take it students would need to present ID’s at the time of purchase, right?
2. Do you want your email and number on this post. If not I can remove it ASAP.

Thanks, Realist, for posting this on the Lounge! The student discount of $5.00 is for ANY student at ANY academic institution. Yes, students will need to present a current student ID at the time of purchase. And, no problem with including my email and number. Please feel free to contact me!
Also, fellow colleague Elisabeth Heard Greer has authored a wonderful in-depth Study Guide which I can send electronically to any faculty who would like to use it in their classes. It is a valuable resource, which unfortunately could not be attached to the HWC everyone email blast. The Study Guide is available for anyone – students and staff. Contact me and I’ll be happy to send it to you.
Thanks again, Kathy Nash
Thanks for the reply!
If you send me the Study Guide, I’ll post it on The Lounge. Here’s my ccc email address, err, hang on a sec… here’s my ‘official’ email: firstname.lastname@example.org
