Something’s Afoot - Dutch Apple LogoDutch Apple is welcoming the new year with the musical whodunit, Something’s Afoot, playing January 11 – February 3, 2018. This satirical poke on Agatha Christie’s ingenious murder mysteries is sure to be loopy, entertaining fun.

The story takes place in late spring of 1935 at Lord Dudley Rancour’s country estate. The old English mansion is located on an island in the middle of a lake, which is a big problem when a raging thunderstorm hits! Ten strangers are stranded in Lord Rancour’s country home as guests disappear one by one, knocked off by an assortment of devilish booby traps. There is murder, mystery, music and comedy as bodies pile up between delightful musical songs. Play along and see if you can figure out whodunit before Miss Tweed, the amateur sleuth who sets out to solve the crimes! There is one thing we know for sure… the butler didn’t do it!

Something’s Afoot - Dutch AppleThe cast includes veterans Jennifer Hope as Miss Tweed, the amateur detective, Katherine Walker Hill as Lettie, the saucy maid, Eric Waters as Flint, the caretaker, Troy Bruchwalski as Nigel Rancour, the black sheep nephew, and Dale Given as Colonel Gillweather, the old army man, who were all seen recently in White Christmas. Other Dutch Apple veterans joining the cast include Ryan Keough as Clive, the fussy butler, Allison Fund as Hope Langdon, the ingénue, Matt McClure as Geoffrey, the uninvited guest, Mike Brennan as Dr. Grayburn, the family doctor, and newcomer Emmanuelle Zeesman as Lady Grace Manley-Prowe, the grande dame.
