Sacramento Theatre Company veterans Matt K. Miller ("A Christmas Carol") and Jackie Vanderbeck ("The Belle of Amherst") lead an ensemble cast in STC’s production of playwright Frederick Knott’s "Dial ‘M’ for Murder," opening at 8 p.m. March 3, 2012.
Famously filmed by master of suspense Alfred Hitchcock, "Dial ‘M’ for Murder" concerns British ex-tennis pro Tony Wendice (Miller), whose neglected wife’s (Vanderbeck) past dalliance with an American writer (Barry Hubbard) leads to the plotting of the perfect crime – or does it?
Also starring are Gary Alan as Inspector Hubbard, and Scott Divine as Wendice’s accomplice Captain Lesgate. Greg Alexander directs.
The show continues through March 25, with performances set for 6:30 p.m. Wednesdays, 12:30 and 6:30 p.m. Thursdays, 8 p.m. Fridays, 2 and 8 p.m. Saturdays, and 2 p.m. Sundays on the STC Main Stage, 1419 H St., Sacramento.
Tickets are priced at $15 to $38, with discounts available to students, seniors and groups. Half-price "rush" tickets are sold one hour prior to each performance (subject to availability).
