A terrible snowstorm traps a group of strangers in a quaint boarding house. To everyone's horror, it soon becomes clear that a murderer is hiding among them. A policeman arrives to investigate, and as the characters testify and re-enact the events of the night, the trap is set to catch the murderer. This thrilling whodunit by Agatha Christie, author of so many classic English murder mysteries, is known for its unpredictable ending ... Can you pinpoint the murderer before the characters do? The original production of The Mousetrap on London's West End has now been running continuously for 61 years, during which period it's been performed more than 25,000 times, making it the most popular whodunit of all time and the longest running show of any type in the modern era.

I have seen the show many times but this cast was the greatest. Loved the twins. They were individually and as twins so believable. And Dennis' talent as an actor and a musician are outstanding. And, no, I'm not a relative or friend; I've never seen or heard of either of them. They are certainly keepers!

This was the most enjoyable event we have been to in years, other than one as good, "The Sanders Family Christmas". This "family" is absolutely fabulous, music the best, interaction with the audience superb, ability to understand the dialogue was especially appreciated by "older" folks! I would rate this performance five stars!!!
More Information About Smoke On The Mountain
It’s back! Smoke on the Mountain, the original runaway hit that spawned two sequels, Sanders Family Christmas and Mount Pleasant Homecoming, returns to the Marietta Square this summer!
If you’ve seen the other two, here’s an opportunity to see the first or to revisit the quirky family in their original gospel concert at Mount Pleasant Baptist Church. The popular Smoke on the Mountain features a rural, gospel-singing Baptist family in 1930s North Carolina — loving father Burl, Bible-quoting mother Vera, twin brother Dennis and his star-struck twin sister Denise, the black sheep Uncle Stanley, the non-singing June, and Reverend Mervin Oglethorpe, head of the Mount Pleasant Baptist Church. The score includes popular hymns including "I'll Fly Away," "Power in the Blood," "Bringing in the Sheaves," and "I Wouldn’t Take Nothing For My Journey Now."
The first in the ever-popular series featuring the singing Sanders Family, Smoke on the Mountain premiered at Marietta’s beloved, now-shuttered Theatre in the Square in 1991. This perennial revival favorite features bluegrass songs from the gospel hit parade, sprinkled with the hapless pranks of this lovable and talented family. Reprising their roles in Smoke on the Mountain are Alan Kilpatrick as Reverend Mervin Oglethorpe, Karen Howell as Vera, Jennifer Akin as June, John Peterson as Burl, and
Scott DePoy as Uncle Stanley.
