Our Mice at the Mousetrap!

Two Women’s Club’s member “mice”, Marlene Jacobs and Valorie Shepard, recently attended the Orange Park Theatre’s presentation of Agatha Christie’s “The Mousetrap”.  The Women’s Club supports the Orange Park Community Theatre by purchasing two season tickets that are used as a door prize at the member meetings when new shows are offered.  Joann Vann initially was the winner of the tickets but was unable to attend, so she gave them to Marlene, who in turn took Valorie to celebrate Valorie’s birthday.  A win-win for all!

The Orange Park Community Theatre, a non-profit community theater, offers live performances and educational opportunities.  The theater was established in 1969 by the Orange Park Women’s and their first stage performance was “The Night of January 16th”, held at the Clay County Courthouse.   The theater then moved several times, with the last time being in April of 1987 to their presentation location at 2900 Moody Avenue in Orange Park.  For more information about the theater, visit their website at:  https://www.opct.info/

The “Mousetrap” is a murder-mystery written by the novelist and playwright Agatha Christie and is considered a crowd-pleasing whodunit that began in London 70 years ago.  It has gone on to become the longest continuously running play in history.  Valorie guessed who the murderer was, but she is bound by the “play-police” to keep quiet!
