Once, Twice, Three Times a Party!
It’s been thirty years since Teatro last presented Maxwell Anderson’s cunning psychological thriller, based on the sensational novel by William March.
When 8-year-old Rhoda Penmark’s rival for the school penmanship medal dies under mysterious circumstances, a web of family secrets begins to unravel, leading Rhoda’s mother inexorably toward some chilling suspicions about her child. Our biggest cast of the season features Mark Bellamy, Mat Busby, Cathy Derkach, Kristi Hansen, Jeff Haslam, Andrea House, and in their company debuts, Nicola Elbro as Christine Penmark and Lilla Solymos (most recently seen in the title role of the Citadel’s Matilda) as the terrifying Rhoda.
