Agatha Christie’s Fiddlers Three at The Theater Barn

The Theater Barn, in New Lebanon, presents this year’s Agatha Christie play, Fiddlers Three, from June 23rd to July 3rd.

In Fiddlers Three, the last play written by Agatha Christie, a prank turns ugly when a group of young people attempt to hide a corpse. Trying to get their hands on more than a little inheritance, a group of young people hide the body of a dead tycoon. But what starts as a lark quickly becomes all too serious when they discover that the body is in fact a murder victim. A comedy about business and finance, with a strong undercurrent of criminal activity, the play combines humour, intricate plotting and a confounding murder.

The Stage described it as, “A different Agatha Christie. The play has deserted the familiar path of the whodunnit type thriller into the realms of black comedy. The action is played for laughs rather than chills, but once the story line has been established, there is plenty of humour and sparkle to carry it along to the usual surprise climax.”

The play was originally performed in Bristol in 1971, titled Fiddler’s Five. Following the performance, Christie revised the scripted, combined two characters and simplified several of the red herrings and Fiddlers Three was completed in 1972.

Open Mic at Chatham Brewing w/ Rob Beaulieu Band, Jun 23

Chatham Brewing is situated in Columbia County, NY and is the perfect location to bring together musicians from the Berkshires, Hudson Valley, Capital Region and beyond! Bring out your instrument and/or come and enjoy some great grooves.

Sign up to play on site.

The Rob Beaulieu Band will host and kick off the event. The band is comprised of local veteran musicians and fosters a close-knit sense of community among musicians.

About the Host:
RBB is a deep dive into Americana, with a slightly more blues and soul take than you will find with Rob’s other band, Raisinhead. Rob explores an improvised approach to the rock, folk, blues, and soul catalogue. Playing everything from gospel tunes to Lou Reed and everything in between, plus reinterpreting many of his own songs, the whole experience will leave you in a soulful mood. The show is slightly akin to a Jerry Garcia Band show. Never the same show, never the same approach. The band includes Tony Perino on organ. Tony toured with ex-Allman Brothers Band guitarist Dan Toller for 10 years. Tony solidifies the southern blues and soul elements in the band. If you want to come and be rocked, dance some, cry some, laugh and cry a lot, this is for you!

Rob Beaulieu Band is:

Rob Beaulieu – Guitar/Vocals
James Kirk – Bass/Vocals
Dave Spadaro – Guitar
Chad Ploss – Drums/Vocals
Tony Perino – Organ/Vocals

DATE/TIME: Thursday, June 23, 2022 / 7 – 10pm

LOCATION: Chatham Brewing
59 Main Street,
Chatham NY 12037
