On Jan. 24, I saw the Beloit Civic Theatre’s production of Agatha Christie’s Ten Little Indians. After receiving a call from Bill Keenan, a member of the company and publicity person for the company, I promised to see the show and to review it. We attended the performance on the 24th, and a review was written. Because of limitations of space in The Rock River Times, not everything submitted can be published. This may have been the case, or it might have been an error on my part when the review was taken into the office. Needless to say, I apologize.

Briefly—the production of Ten Little Indians was an exceptionally well-done piece. Carl Balson’s direction was flawless. One of my comments: “As a magician, Balson used every deceptive device to draw our attention away from the killer, and not until the very end of the play were we aware of the culprit.”

Beloit Civic Theatre has been in existence for 69 years, and their loyal audiences continue to support them. My congratulations to the hard-working cast for a most professional production. Jelene Ahrens, Janet Balson, Bill Keenan, Ken Klein, Kathleen Klespis-Wick, Paul Klespis-Wic, Jack Rabito, Bill Syverson, Donna Syverson and Mark Winterland played every scene with confidence and art.
