What's On

Agatha Christie's "A Murder is Announced"

Director: Rhoda Burke

Writer: Adapted by Leslie Darbon from the original book by Agatha Christie

In the quiet, little village of Chipping Cleghorn, an announcement in the local newspaper causes a stir among the residents. There is to be a murder in the home of Miss Blacklock that evening!

Miss Blacklock, her lodgers, and curious visitors arrive and tensions mount. They all wonder if it’s all some sort of joke. However, the victim proves to be an unexpected visitor and not one of the residents or guests. Inspector Craddock is joined by amateur sleuth Miss Marple, who as always, is one step ahead. In a classic Agatha Christie tale of concealed identities, desperation, mixed motives, and another death, it takes a risky strategy to uncover the true identity of the murderer.

Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy Radio Play

MAD presents the Radio Play, Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy (part 1, or ‘Fit the First’) by Douglas Adams.

In the first few weeks of lockdown back in April, MAD decided to try our hand at a radio play. Through the next few months some members met virtually to rehearse this production. The experience not only allowed us a creative outlet, a social connection with a familiar process and ‘something to do’ but it also was a huge learning process for everyone.

The cast not only produced all the character voices, they also created as many of the sound effects as possible using anything they could find! All the ‘music’ was also created by members. We learned the best ways of gathering individual ‘voices’, and were able to involve those not able to join the virtual rehearsals. Each voice or effect was collected individually and edited together - another skill we had to learn!

So please when you listen, understand that the creation of this production is our first attempt at this type of production. We are still editing ‘Fit the Second’ which should be completed by the end of October. We hope you enjoy listening even half as much as we have enjoyed making this.

This has been a ‘not-for-profit’ production.
