PORT LUDLOW — “The Gazebo,” a suspense-laced comedy, opens March 27 for a four-day run at the Beach Club courtesy of the Ludlow Village Players.

In this British romp by Alec Coppel, television mystery writer Elliott Nash (Jim Gormly) is being blackmailed unbeknownst to his soap-opera actress wife, Nell (Ginny Ford).

The only way out of the mess, Elliott decides, is murder.

He sets out to plan the perfect crime — but naturally, confusion reigns as Elliott crosses paths with a series of unsavory characters.

“The Gazebo” is “good, clean, old-fashioned 1950s fun with a very suspenseful twist,” promised Village Players spokeswoman Mary Ronen.

Curtain times are 7 p.m. Thursday, March 27, through Saturday, March 29, with a final matinee at 2 p.m. Sunday, March 30, at the Beach Club, 121 Marina View Drive, and tickets are $15 via Remaining tickets will be sold at the door up to 30 minutes before each show.

Alongside Gormly and Ford, the comedy's cast includes veteran actor Zach Nesmith as Nell and Elliott's neighbor, District Attorney Harlow Edison, as well as Village Players John Boyce, Shirley Davies-Owens, Steve Frenzl, Doug Hubbard, Jennifer Kavanagh, Carl Miller, Sid Poole, Gary Settle and Vicki Valley. Vallery Durling is the director.
