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.
