We’re Thrilled to Present Our Spring Play!
Murder on the Orient Express
Everyone is a Suspect…
Murder on the Orient Express is widely regarded as one of Agatha Christie’s greatest literary achievements. First published in 1934, the stylish, suspenseful murder mystery features an unlikely cast of potential suspects – including a colonel, a princess and a countess, all with alibis. Trapped aboard the luxurious Orient Express during a snowstorm, the story features one of the most iconic fictional detectives of all time – Belgian private detective, Hercule Poirot.
The play is an adaption written by Tony-nominated playwright Ken Ludwig, and promises fans of the mystery classic the same suspenseful, thrilling ride.

Cultivating Creativity Through Theatre Arts
Aragon High School Drama strives to be a welcoming space for students to explore self expression through the arts of acting and technical theatre. Shane Smuin, Aragon’s Artistic Director, believes that theatre is a conservatory: a safe space where self expression and personal growth is cultivated, encouraged, and developed.
In Beginning Drama class, students begin the process of self expression through theatre games, monologues, scenes, published plays, and original projects.
In Advanced Drama, students deepen their understanding through advanced improvisational work, classical monologues and scripts. As well, students write their own short plays culminating in an on-stage final performance. At the conclusion of the year, the students also perform and produce a One-Act Musical.
In Technical Theatre, students learn practical hands-on skills and techniques for the creation of sets, designed by Fred Eiras, Set Designer, for Aragon Drama’s mainstage productions. Through this process, they gain a deeper understanding of the technical and design elements of theatre.
