One week into its three-week run, the Spokane Civic Theatre's production of Agatha Christie's classic murder mystery The Mousetrap has completely sold out.
In Spokane starring KXLY meteorologist Kris Crocker in the leading role of Mollie Ralston, The Mousetrap is the longest-running theatrical show of any kind. And at the Civic, it's joining the ranks of other recently sold out shows such as the current season's opener Les Miserables, last season's White Christmas and 2010's Buddy: The Buddy Holly Story.
The Civic's social media and marketing associate Miranda Larson told the Inlander there are no plans to extend the production as the Civic did when Les Mis sold out every performance last fall, including those later-added shows.
But don't despair, the Civic's current season still has several more shows lined up, including The Three Musketeers (April 4-19) and Gypsy (May 16-June 15) on the main stage. In the studio theater, the musical Suds opens next weekend (March 14-April 13), followed by the new comedy Becky's New Car (May 2-June 1).
If you just can't believe you let the opportunity to see The Mousetrap slip past, you can try getting tickets by showing up an hour prior to a performance to get on a waiting list for any tickets that might open up. Find details on the wait list policy on the Civic's site.
And if you were an early ticket buyer and will be attending the show, remember to keep the ending secret.
