THE MOUSETRAP WILL EMBARK ON A 60 DATE TOUR OF THE UK AND IRELAND, BEGINNING IN CANTERBURY ON 11 SEPTEMBER, 2012

 

For over 50 years, Agatha Christie’s The Mousetrap has been the world’s longest running stage production. The first ever tour of the record-breaking production will open on 11 September 2012 in Canterbury and tour through to 2014. For a full list of tour dates, please see Notes to Editors below.

Due to extraordinary demand, extra performances have now been added in Canterbury, Cardiff, Manchester, Southampton, Malvern and Newcastle. Overall, the tour has sold well over 100,000 tickets so far.

For the first leg of the tour the cast will include: Steven France (Eastenders, The Bill) as Christopher Wren, Thomas Howes (Downton Abbey, The History Boys (National Theatre UK Tour)) as Sgt Trotter, Karl Howman (Brush Strokes) as Mr Paravicini, Bruno Langley (Coronation Street, Doctor Who) as Giles Ralston, Graham Seed (Yes, Prime Minister UK Tour, BBC Radio 4’s The Archers) as Major Metcalf and Jemma Walker (Family Affairs, Eastenders) as Mollie Ralston. Jan Waters will reprise her west end role as Mrs Boyle and Clare Wilkie (Eastenders) will play Miss Casewell.

This classic murder mystery play is now in its 60th year in London’s West End, and on 18 November 2012 will celebrate the actual 60th Birthday with a gala in aid of Mousetrap Theatre Projects.

Mousetrap Productions has licensed 60 productions of The Mousetrap world-wide to mark the 60th year. During this period the world’s longest running show will be seen in every continent, with professional productions scheduled for Australia, China, Korea, Turkey, South Africa, Russia, Czech Republic, Hungary, France, Germany, Holland, Italy, Poland, Spain, Scandinavia, Venezuela, and across the United States and Canada.

As part of the 60th year celebrations, Mousetrap Theatre Projects will run an educational writing project for Year 6 pupils at 60 primary schools across London. Pupils will be encouraged to write their own short mystery. The best stories or plays will be read by professional actors on the set of The Mousetrap at the St. Martin’s Theatre. Thousands of Year 6 pupils will attend matinee performances of The Mousetrap as part of the project.

For its 60th year The Mousetrap at the St. Martin's Theatre is to introduce a small charity fee of 60p on each ticket, in addition to the regular ticket price, which will be applied entirely for the benefit of charities working with young people and the arts, including Mousetrap Theatre Projects.

The Mousetrap continues at St. Martin’s Theatre, London where it is currently booking to December 2012.
