THEATRE 29 ANNOUNCES CASTING FOR "DEATHTRAP"
Theatre 29 announces the casting for the first production of the 2013 season, the classic thriller "Deathtrap," by Ira Levin, author of "Rosemary's Baby," "The Stepford Wives," and "The Boys from Brazil."
Sidney Bruhl, a down on his luck playwright looking for the next big play, is played by Leonard Weber. Bruhl receives a great script from unknown playwright Clifford Anderson, played by Benjamin Bees.
Bruhls' understanding wife, Myra Bruhl, will be portrayed by Janet Peercy, Helga Ten Dorp, a visiting Dutch psychic who "sees" much pain, is played by Judy Andreshak, and Porter Milgrim, Sidney's attorney and aspiring novelist with greed in his heart, is Tom Highfill.
The small cast was pre-selected by Theatre 29 veteran Butch Pelfry. Under his direction, the plot bends, spirals, and spins totally out of control as Bruhl and Anderson match wits in this suspenseful nail-biter that provides both thrills and spontaneous laughter.
"Deathtrap" opens January 11 and runs for five weekends, through February 9, 2013. Performances will be 7 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays, with 2:30 p.m. Sunday matinees on January 20th and February 3rd.

SOROPTIMISTS SPONSOR OPENING OF "DEATHTRAP" AT THEATRE 29
Theatre 29's first production of the 2013 season is the classic thriller "Deathtrap," by Ira Levin, author of "Rosemary's Baby," "The Stepford Wives," and "The Boys from Brazil."
Sidney Bruhl needs a killer idea. Once the toast of Broadway, his plays were masterpieces of the murder genre, but it's been years since his last hit. When Bruhl receives a script to die for from unknown playwright Clifford Anderson, he sees a lethal opportunity and invites Anderson to his isolated home. Directed by Theatre 29 veteran Butch Pelfry, the plot bends, spirals, and spins totally out of control as Bruhl and Anderson match wits in this suspenseful nail-biter that provides thrills and spontaneous laughter.
