Miss Marple investigating Beverley ‘murder’

Beverley Theatre Company has announced its latest production and also issued a plea for more people to join them to help keep amateur theatre alive in the town.

The latest show, featuring the much-loved Agatha Christie character Miss Marple, is “A Murder is Announced”, an adaption of the Christie story by Leslie Durbon. It will be staged at Beverley Memorial Hall from April 18th – 21st April.

The scene is set when family and friends of Mrs. Blacklock are left bemused when the weekly copy of the Chipping Cleghorn Gazette arrives with a startling announcement in the personal column that a murder is to take place at their home, that very day at 6.30pm.

As more people, including a certain Miss Marple, pop in to check what is going on, the scene is set to see exactly what will happen when the clock reaches the appointed time. And when a death does occur, it is up to Inspector Craddock to solve the crime – but can he do it without the help of Miss Marple, and before anyone else dies……..?

The production sees the return of many familiar faces from Beverley Theatre Company’s previous hugely successful staging of “The Vicar of Dibley”, with Zoe Conley, Emma Drew, Denise Dyble, Tony Musgrave, Nev Slater, Colin Walls and Bill Watts being joined by BTC stalwarts Pat McKenzie and Angela Chapman, and debuts from Kate Lindsay, Sarah Burnell and Paul Thomas.

Tickets cost £7.50 for adults, £6.50 for concessions and £19 for a family ticket. Tickets can be purchased on the door on the night, from the Tourist Information Centre at the Treasure House, Champney Road, Beverley, from Haller’s Shoes, 2 North Bar Within, Beverley, from EweMove, Beckside, Beverley or online at

Meanwhile, a spokesman for Beverley Theatre Company said it was keen to hear from prospective new members both for roles on stage and behind the scenes. For more information email: or ring Denise Dyble, Membership Secretary on 07856 253311.
