Just after midnight, a snowdrift stops the luxurious Orient Express in its tracks. An American tycoon lies dead in his compartment, his door locked from the inside. Isolated and with a killer in their midst, the passengers rely on detective Hercule Poirot to identify the murderer – in case he or she decides to strike again. Winner of the 2021 Audience Choice Poll, this show is a thrilling, suspenseful rollercoaster of a murder mystery.

“If you haven’t yet, buy a ticket. It was phenomenal,” patron Sherri Davenport of Farmville said. “They went above and beyond not only with their safety precautions, but with their stellar performance. I legit got chills at the end.”

Following the run of “Agatha Christie’s Murder on the Orient Express” will be the long-anticipated run of Robert Harling’s “Steel Magnolias.” The show will run in Appomattox from June 3 to 27. Filled with hilarious repartee, biting one-liners and the underlying strength and love of a mother-daughter relationship, experience this beautiful show like never before.
