And Then There Were None
The University of Valley Forge (UVF) student drama organization, Curtain Call, presents a performance of suspense, mystery and murder in its spring production of Agatha Christie's “And Then There Were None,” opening on April 10, 2015 at 7 pm.

 “And Then There Were None” is an adaptation from the mystery novel written by British crime novelist Agatha Christie (1890–1976) which was first published in 1939. Christie, deemed The Queen of Mystery, remains one of the best-selling novelists in the world with an estimated sale of more than 2 billion copies of her works. The play takes place in the 1940s and tells the story of ten strangers who arrive at a house for dinner, each under their own pretenses, but all revolving around an unrevealed person known as U.N. Owen. Throughout the play, the characters discover that something is terribly amiss as the guests begin to die one by one.

The play is directed by UVF graduate Randy Stegner '14, along with senior Theresa Sanchez, the assistant director. The main cast includes junior Paul Cooper as William Blore, senior Loren Matello as Vera Claythorne, senior Christopher McNaney as Philip Lombard and sophomore Danielle Debley as Judge Wargrave. 

Evening performances of “And Then There Were None” will be presented April 10, 11 and 18 at 7 pm, with a matinee performance on April 19 at 2:30 pm. The performances will be held at The Krempels Theater on the UVF campus in Phoenixville. Tickets are $10 and can be purchased at the theater doors.
