Fall Play to Showcase Alfred Hitchcock’s Thriller

Chicago Heights, IL-(ENEWSPF)- Alfred Hitchcock would love this. The stage is set in Monsignor Croarkin Auditorium at Marian Catholic for the school’s fall production of “Dial M for Murder.”

Originally a play written by Frederick Knott in 1952 and later adapted into a film by Alfred Hitchcock in 1954, “Dial M for Murder” tells the story of a tennis player who frames his unfaithful wife for first-degree murder after she inadvertently hinders his plan to kill her.

The small, yet talented cast of seven includes Angel Alzeidan ’19 (Schererville) as Margot Wendice, Joe Chambers ’19 (Chicago Heights) as Max Halliday, Michael Breslin ’19 (Oak Forest) as Tony Wendice, Nasira Watts ’19 (Lansing) as Captain Lesgate, Gia Mele ’22 (Tinley Park) as Inspector Hubbard, Andy Vazquez ’21 (Chicago) as Police/Bellhop, and Ashley Saul ’20 (Park Forest) as Police/Reporter.

Marian Catholic’s staging of “Dial M for Murder” is directed by Tiffany Albers-Lopez, Laura Hilger ’14, assistant director, and Sam Sullivan ’08, producer.

Performances of the thrilling production will be at 7:00 p.m. on Friday, October 26 and Saturday, October 27 and 2:00 p.m. on Sunday, October 28. Tickets are $5 for students, $10 for adults, and $9 for seniors.
