Stages at CCC Presenting Christie Whodunit 'The Mousetrap'


When a group of strangers are trapped together at a manor house during a snowstorm, they soon discover that one of them is a murderer. But which one?

Stages at Camden County College will answer this question as it presents “The Mousetrap,” the quintessential “whodunit” that is both the longest running show in theater history and one of the most well-known tales by the foremost mystery writer of modern times, Agatha Christie.

The production’s director and set designer is Don Swenson of Pitman. Stage manager is CCC student Brittany Burns of Cherry Hill, and costume design is by Krissy  Schnesskoff of Princeton.

Starring in the show as “Detective Sergeant Trotter” is professional actor Josh Carpenter of Philadelphia, who is a member of Actors’ Equity Association. Completing the cast are Casey Williams Ficarra of Oaklyn as “Miss Casewell”; Joy Hubbard of Mount Laurel as “Mrs. Boyle”; CCC alumna Felice Capece of Clementon as “Mollie Ralston”; Shawn O’Brien of Laurel Springs as “Major Metcalf”; CCC student Paul Brodo of Deptford as “Mr. Paravicini”; Eli Wood of Cherry Hill as “Giles Ralston”; and CCC student Alex Licorish of Cherry Hill as “Christopher Wren.”

Performances of “The Mousetrap” will be given at 8 p.m. Nov. 30 and Dec. 1, 6, 7, 8 and at 3 p.m. Dec. 2 in The Little Theatre inside Lincoln Hall on the College’s Blackwood Campus. The campus is located at College Drive and Peter Cheeseman Road in Gloucester Township.
