Anybody for Murder opens on Opening Nite Theatre‘s stage on March 7 and runs until March 23.
Anybody for Murder is about a man named Max who is planning to murder his wife and use the life insurance money he expects to collect to enjoy life with his girlfriend. George, the husband of Max’s girlfriend, arrives unexpectedly with news that both Max’s girlfriend and wife are the beneficiaries of a large fortune.
Now everyone has murder on their minds and all that stands in their way is a neighbour, crime writer Edgar Chambers, who knows a thing or two about murder.
This thrilling comedy was written by Brian Clemens and David Spooner.
The play is directed by Gerwyn Mills, who has been a part of the local theatre group since it began 20 years ago.
Mills began his career in show business in Wales at age 7 and was a choral soloist in a weekly radio show conducted by his father. He took on children’s roles in musicals and films and spent several years touring Britain.
When he moved to Canada with his family in 1963, he worked for the government, but continued to be involved in theatre.
He had leading roles with the Abbotsford Musical Theatre Society, and worked with the Chilliwack Theatre Guild, the Fraser Valley University Theatre Campus, the Galley and Gallery dinner theatre and Theatre Under the Stars. He also spent many years with Heritage Valley Resort where he was involved with plays, musicals and dinner theatre.
