Legendary entertainers Kenan and Kel made theatrical history when they broke down the fourth wall, and then, to the consternation of the set designer, broke down the second and third walls as well. Experience the magic of the stage with today's Groupon: for $15, you get two tickets to Agatha Christie’s The Mousetrap at Covey Center for the Arts, located in Provo. This Groupon is good for the best available seats, with each balcony seat valued at $12 and each main-floor seat valued at $15. Reservations must be made in advance, and available performance dates are September 10–11 and September 13–18. All shows begin at 7:30 p.m.
Originally written for Queen Mary’s 80th birthday in the late 1940s, The Mousetrap has since gone on to universal acclaim, with a diverse fan base that includes everyone from octogenarian monarchs to barely teething toddler theater critics. Barta Heiner directs the Covey Center’s production of the classic murder mystery, leading a talented cast of actors through a story of devious death and drama in a manor. The Mousetrap is the longest-running play in the world; by the time it reached its 25th anniversary in the 1970s, an estimated four million people had seen it—more than three times the amount that tuned in to see The Beatles make an elephant disappear on The Ed Sullivan Show in 1964.
This year marks the 120th anniversary of Agatha Christie’s birth, and seeing The Mousetrap at the Covey Center for the Arts is one of the best ways to celebrate the dame’s legendary influence, outside of falsely accusing coworkers of dastardly deeds in order to showcase your absurdly astute deductive-reasoning skills. Grab a fellow mystery maniac and bite for the cheese of quality theater buried deep within the gears of The Mousetrap.
Children under age six and babies in arms are not allowed to attend the performance.
