‘The Gazebo’ brings old-fashioned fun, suspense in Port Ludlow

Peninsula Daily News

PORT LUDLOW — This Thursday is opening night for “The Gazebo,” a suspense-laced comedy up 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 through Saturday with a final matinee at 2 p.m. Sunday at the Beach Club, 121 Marina View Drive.

Tickets are $15 via www.BrownPaperTickets.com. Remaining tickets will be sold at the door up to half an hour before showtime.

Vallery Durling is directing the play, whose cast is a blend of veterans and new faces.

Alongside Gormly and Ford are Zach Nesmith as 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.
