BATS present The Mousetrap 

BATS The Mousetrap
Start Date: 06 August, 2019
End Date: 10 August, 2019

THE BATS ARE BACK!!

The Bitou Amateur Theatrical Society is, after a sabbatical, delighted to present their sixth production, Agatha Christie’s most famous play, The Mousetrap, to Plett audiences.

When BATS was created by Roger Davis and David Hall-Green in 2013, they could never have thought that their theatrical dreamchild would endure for so long. From their very first play, Murdered to Death, to their most recent, BlIthe Spirit, by Noel Coward, their productions have proved to be enormously popular, playing to full houses and providing an enormous amount of pleasure to lovers of live theatre.

The name, The Mousetrap, rings a bell for many people, but few realise that this iconic murder mystery has been playing on stage for over 67 years.  The World Premiere was at the Theatre Royal, Nottingham in 1952 and it then played continuously at various theatres before transferring to St Martin’s Theatre in London, where it has been running ever since.  Agatha Christie was convinced that it would run for a maximum of eight months and was astounded when it kept on going to even greater global success.  The play has a twist at the end which the audience is traditionally asked not to reveal after leaving the theatre.

David Hall-Green has gathered another team of energetic amateur thespians around him for his latest venture. This time, some talented young locals will join the more experienced stalwarts who have featured in past productions.  They have worked very hard over the past months, learning their lines and being directed by David in the art of performance.  They have all discovered the magic of live theatre and can’t wait to share it with you.
