And Then There Were None is the second show of SYAA's school season.

Strauss Youth Academy for the Arts is preparing for its opening night of the Agatha Christie best seller, And Then There Were None. The show will open to the public Saturday, October 28, at 7 p.m. and will be shown again Sunday, October 29, at 3 p.m. and the following weekend Saturday, November 4, at 2 p.m. and Sunday, November 5, at 3 p.m.

Agatha Christie's And Then There Were None tells the story of ten strangers experience after arriving to an island under different pretenses. After the ten find a poem detailing the death of ten Indians, they find one of them has been murdered. The play follows a 'who dunnit' scenario as person after person is killed. 

The SYAA cast is comprised of students from sixth to twelfth grade. Director, Kelley Flores, doesn't think that age affects the quality of this classic though, speaking of two of the thirteen year old actors, "Both young women are able to pull off their characters in an amazing way." 

Tickets to the show are $14 for adults and $10 for students and children and are available here. More information on all that the Strauss Youth Academy or the Arts is doing can be found here.
