The Portland Civic Players are excited to announce the cast for their spring production, Agatha Christie’s Murder on the Orient Express, adapted for stage by Ken Ludwig.


Directed by Mary Teachout (Beauty and the Beast and Shrek) and assisted by Laurie Reeves (stage manager for Beauty and the Beast and Shrek), Murder on the Orient Express is a classic whodunnit with the added bonus of Ken Ludwig comedy.


Set on the luxury train, the Orient Express, leaving out of Istanbul, our well-known detective Hercule Poirot, played by Clay Ramsey, is just trying to have a bit of a vacation but it is not in the cards.  When an avalanche strikes, so does the murderer! With a train full of suspects and each one with an alibi how will Poirot figure it out?


The cast of characters is rounded out with Dan Braker as Monsiuer Bouc, Lydia Bowling as Mary Debenham, Emily Perry as Princess Dragomiroff, Alex Port as Hector McQueen, Amber Miller as Greta Ohlsson, Deb Hattis as Countess Andrenyi, Erin Hoard as Helen Hubbard, Aaron Swan as Colonel Arbuthnot, Antonius Watkins as Samual Ratchett, and Emerson Dibean as Michele the Conductor.

Performances are March 15 and 23 at 7:30 PM and March 16, 17 and 24 at 2:30 PM.  More information is available on the Portland Civic Players website at or follow them on Facebook at Portland Civic Players.
