Welcome to The Royalton Players Website
The Royalton Players will be presenting two one-act mystery thrillers in April.
The productions, "Sorry, Wrong Number" and "The Hitch-hiker" will open April 19 and run for two weekends.
According to the shows director, Chuck Poliafico, "Sorry, Wrong Number" is about an overbearing invalid woman who hears the plotting of a murder on the telephone and desperately tries to get someone to do something about what she has heard.
"The play became a famous movie in the late 1940's with Barbara Stanwyck in the lead role," Poliafico added. "Mary Manos-Mitchem, who has been a main staple with our theater takes on the lead role in the play."
The second production, "The Hitch-hiker" will be done as a radio production from 1948 and tells the story of a young man dirving cross country being stalked and haunted by a hitch-hiker. Scott Maynard, who serves as the theater's vice president and music director, takes on the lead role in the second play as the man being haunted by the hitch-hiker, Poliafico added.
Also featured in both productions are Katie Morilak, Violet Pennza, Andy Morilak, Matt Black, Patrick Tovey and Emma Mitchem. Ron Young will serve as the technical director for the show and Jim Kline and Eric Maynard are the assistant technical directors.
