STAMFORD, Conn. — Stamford theatergoers will have a chance to solve a crime when Agatha Christie’s “The Unexpected Guest” comes to Curtain Call later this month.

Directing the cast of local actors will be Joel Fenster, of Stamford, who has been a huge fan of Christie’s since he was in the third grade. It will be his third time directing one of her plays and the second time he will be doing “The Unexpected Guest,” which was the first play he ever directed about 12 years ago, a press release said.

“I've learned a lot since then and am proud of the show I did oh so long ago, but I am thankful for the opportunity to do it differently at a theater that I love working at,” Fenster said in the release.

“(Fenster) has a real passion for the material so he’s a perfect choice for us and I’m thrilled to have him back with us,” Lou Ursone, Curtain Call’s executive director, said in the release.

The show will be from Jan. 11 through Feb. 3 in the Dressing Room Theatre at 8 p.m. Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays and  2 p.m. Sundays. The theater opens one hour before showtime and is “bring your own everything,” style, the release said.

Ticket prices are $29 for adults, $22 for senior citizens and $14.50 for students and children, with Thrifty Thursday prices of $20. Flex passes are available. Tickets are available online or by calling the box office at 203-461-6358.
