Sherry Ingbritsen’s first role in a theater production after moving to Georgia in 1993 was in an Agatha Christie play.
It was 1997 and the now disbanded Pelican Players were staging “Witness for the Prosecution” at the Gwinnett Historic Courthouse in Lawrenceville. Ingbritsen played Katherine Clegg, a forensic pathologist.
“I have been actively doing theater since, and some of my favorites have been the (Agatha) Christie mysteries,” Ingbritsen said. “Everyone loves a murder mystery.”
With that in mind, New Dawn Theater Company’s latest production, “Appointment with Death,” won’t disappoint.
Written by Agatha Christie and adapted into a play in 1945, the production is directed by Ingbritsen, president and artistic director of the Duluth theater company.
“‘Appointment with Death’ is a great (mystery) with its exotic locale and knowing that anyone in it could have been the murderer,” Ingbritsen said. “It has a twist ending, one that our audiences will enjoy.”
If audience requests are any indication, “Appointment with Death” will be a popular show.
“Our audiences always ask us to do mysteries and comedies,” Ingbritsen said. “They should expect to hear and see wonderful characterizations, a beautiful, timeless set and be engaged in the intrigue of where the story will take them.”
