Get your ticket and climb aboard for a delightful evening of murder and mystery as OC’s Red Dot Players bring to life Agatha Christie’s Murder on the Orient Express. 

For the play’s assistant Director and OC alumna Kendra Holly Grant, the support of Red Dot Players and her former professor has given her the opportunity to take her skills from the classroom to directing her first show.  

“I am very excited to progress my knowledge with Jeremy Beaulne, who was my teacher and mentor while attending Okanagan College,” said Grant. “Following Murder on the Orient Express, I am directing my first show in the Black Cat Cabaret at the end of March.”

Jason Pyett, an actor in the Red Dot Plyer’s Theatre Company, expressed his excitement for being part of the timeless classic that will be the theatre company's largest production to date.  

“I am deeply honored to be portraying the beloved character Hercule Poirot,” said Pyett. “As I step into the shoes of this iconic character, I feel a sense of responsibility to deliver an unforgettable performance. This show is the theatre company’s biggest production yet in terms of the scope of work, the set, the costumes, the acting, all of it is a huge undertaking.”

 The production features a cast of thirteen, authentic period costumes, and a recreation of the sumptuous Art Deco interior of the Orient Express.
