Spotlight: Dial M for Murder

Red River Radio's Kermit Poling speaks with actors Stephen Parr and John Brewer, who star in Shreveport Little Theatre's new production of Dial M for Murder.

Shreveport Little Theatre’s box office is open for Dial “M” for Murder, by Fredrick Knott.

The classic mystery is a thriller, murder-mystery—a cat and mouse waiting game—with enough twists to keep audiences on the edge of their seats.
Tony Wendice, a retired world tennis champion, married his wife Margot for her money and now plans to murder her for the same reason. Tony arranges the perfect murder: He hires a scoundrel he once knew into strangling Margot and arranges a brilliant alibi for himself. The night of the planned attack, in a thrilling surprise twist, the plan goes awry.

 The mystery is scheduled for February 23, 24, March 1, 2 at 7:30 p.m. and February 25, March 2, March 3 at 2 p.m.

Tickets are $25 and can be purchased at SLT’s Box Office at (318) 458-2700, 812 Margaret Place, from noon until 4 p.m. weekdays or at shreveportlittletheatre.com.

The cast of Dial “M” for Murder includes Katie Bickham, Josh Talley, Stephen Parr, John Brewer, and William Peters.
The production crew includes director Mary Joris, stage manager Jennifer Waulet, technical director John Allen and assistant Mike Hackett, lighting designer Julie Edwards, lighting board operator Bailey Parr, sound designer Barry C. Butler, costumer Susan Beal, and prop master Kandy Broughton.
