The Monroe Theatre Guild is proud to present their first full-length production of the 2020 Season, "The Lady Vanishes." Written by Derek Webb, based on the book "The Wheel Spins" by Ethel Lina White, and the 1938 Alfred Hitchcock film "The Lady Vanishes." Directed by Denise Plantenberg and Suzann Holland.

"The Lady Vanishes," part of the Colony Brands performance series, will be performed on the Colony Brands Stage at the Monroe Theatre Guild, 910 16th Avenue, in Monroe. Six performances over two weekends, Friday and Saturday, March 13 and 14, at 7:00 p.m., and Sunday, March 15, at 2:00 p.m., and Friday and Saturday, March 20 and 21, at 7:00 p.m., and Sunday, March 22, at 2:00 p.m.

A cast of 16 local actors tell the story of an English socialite, Iris Carr, traveling by train through Europe back to England in the 1930s. She befriends an English governess also traveling home to England. Their friendship is cut short, however, when the governess suddenly goes missing on the moving train. To further complicate the disappearance, everyone on the train denies ever having seen the woman. Iris is determined to prove her friend is real, she is somewhere on the train and she is in danger. This classic tale of mystery, deceit, crime and conspiracy, is sure to keep audiences on the edge of their seats. The directors also borrow from the Hitchcock style with iconic cameos by the legendary director.
