After a 3-year hiatus, the Rumford Association for the Advancement of the Performing Arts brings back its popular murder mystery theater and choral production at 7 p.m. on on Friday, June 9, and Saturday, June 10, at Le Paresseux (a.k.a. The Snowshoe Club) in Rumford.

The production, “And Then There Was One,” written by Michael Druce, puts a twist on Agatha Christie’s beloved murder mystery and is sure to keep audience guessing – and laughing. This show is directed by RAAPA veteran Connie Venskus.

An entertaining musical interlude will be included featuring the RAAPA Chorus under the direction of Shirli Allen Heald with accompanist Gail Dorr. Songs will include “Raindrops Keep Falling on My Head,” “I’d Like to Teach the World to Sing” and several other familiar favorites from RAAPA’s extensive repertoire.

RAAPA has been entertaining the community for the past fifty-five years. This production was in rehearsals back in 2020 but shut down when the pandemic started. Many of the original cast members were able to return.

Unlike past productions, this will not be a dinner theater, however, a cash bar will be available.

Doors open at 6 p.m. Tickets are $15 and available in advance by contacting Anita at 207-369-0205 or at All That Jazz hair salon located at 80 Congress Street in Rumford. Tickets will also be available at the door the day of performance. Le Paresseux is located at 227 Waldo St., Rumford.
