Just after midnight, a snowdrift stops the Orient Express in
its tracks. The luxurious train is surprisingly full for the time of the year,
but by the morning it is one passenger fewer. An American tycoon lies dead in
his compartment, stabbed a dozen times, with his door locked from the inside.
Isolated and with a killer in their midst, Detective Hercule Poirot must
identify the murderer – in case he or she decides to strike again
Ragtime April 1-2 at 7:30 PM

in Conjunction with the Community Arts Center

At the dawn of a new century, everything is changing… and anything is possible. Set in the volatile melting pot of turn-of-the-century New York, three distinctly American tales are woven together – that of a stifled upper-class wife, a determined Jewish immigrant and a daring young Harlem musician – united by their courage, compassion and belief in the promise of the future. Together, they confront history's timeless contradictions of wealth and poverty, freedom and prejudice, hope and despair, and what it means to live in America.

A man with several convictions to his name finds himself in jail once again. Rather than spend his time in jail, he convinces the guards that he's crazy enough to need psychiatric care and is sent to a hospital.

However, Nurse Ratched becomes his personal cross to bear as his resistance to the hospital routine gets on her nerves.

Horton must protect the Whos from a world of naysayers and dangers, and he must also guard an abandoned egg that's been left in his care by the irresponsible Mayzie La Bird.  Although Horton faces ridicule, danger and a trial, the intrepid Gertrude McFuzz never loses faith in him.  Ultimately, the powers of friendship, loyalty, family and community are challenged and emerge triumphant!
