Cherokee Theatre Company is bringing Agatha Christie back to the stage with its production of the murder mystery, “Mousetrap,” opening tonight at the Canton Theatre.

The show is an old favorite in the murder mystery genre, but there’s plenty new about this production, said Becca Bowden, Cherokee Theatre Company board member.

“CTC audiences delighted in Christie’s ‘A Murder is Announced’ with beloved amateur sleuth Miss Marple two seasons ago,” she said. “Audiences can again look forward to an enticing murder mystery with plenty of good humor with CTC’s production of Mousetrap.”

Myrna Feldman is the director for the show, and while this is her first time to work with CTC, Feldman comes with many directorial credits to her name.

Feldman has directed, acted, run lights, and stage managed numerous productions in Boston and the Atlanta area. She was a founding member and the artistic director of Arcado Community Theatre in Lilburn.

“We’re very excited to welcome Myrna to the CTC family,” Bowden said. “She has cast a wonderful show with old and new faces. I think our audience will really enjoy this production.”

The cast includes Julie Robyn Turner, Jacob Louis, Cody Vaughn, Kathy Dillon, Michael Adamson, Morgan Vaughn, Rich Goodman and Matthew Harper.

A murder, a guest house full of peculiar characters, and one of the most talked about plot twists on the stage, which will keep audiences guessing till the last minute promises to make “The Mousetrap” an evening not to forget, Bowden said.

The audience favorite has had the longest continuous run in the world since its premiere in London in 1952, she said.

“Make no mistake — the ‘Mousetrap’ is not about the cyber world. Imagine not being able to look up a guesthouse on Trip Advisor, Google your visitors, or text for help. This is classic Christie, unending suspense and macabre humor. Don’t miss it.”

Performance dates are today, Saturday and Sunday and Sept. 27 to 29. Shows on Fridays and Saturdays are at 8 p.m., Sundays at 2:30 p.m. Tickets are $15 for general admission, $12 for students/seniors, $10 for groups of 10 or more.

Tickets can be purchased online at cherokeetheatre.org or by calling (770) 591-0282.
