'And Then There Were None' Coming to AHA Stage

Demarest, NJ: Settle in for an evening of mystery and drama as the Academy of the Holy Angels presents Agatha Christie’s “And Then There Were None.” Discover the dark secrets these characters have kept hidden as AHA’s award-winning thespians bring this tale to the Holy Angels stage.

These accomplished performers will present four shows: Friday, November 10th at 7:30 p.m.; Saturday, November 11th at 2 p.m. and 7:30 p.m.; and Sunday, November 12th at 2 p.m.

Asked how she decided on this classic, Paper Mill Award-winning Director Katie Collins explained that the Holy Angels students wanted to present a drama, and many had already read and enjoyed the Christie novel on which the play was based.

“The play was also written by Agatha Christie, so nothing was lost in translation, which makes for a better script,” Collins added.

The cast will include Nora Jacobi of West New York and Valentina Zazzali of Saddle River as Rogers, Julia Fernandez of Teaneck and Valeria Gonzalez of Lodi as Mrs. Rogers, Anijanie Perez of Teaneck as Fred Narracott, Rianna LeHane of Pearl River (NY) as Vera Claythorne, John Malcuit of Park Ridge High as Philip Lombard, Jack Piccirillo of Saint Joseph’s Regional as Anthony Marston, Gabi Layne of Upper Saddle River as Whitney Blore, Jenna Cooperman of Tappan (NY) as General Mackenzie, Jessica Boccassini of Rutherford as Emily Brent, Alexander Birchwale of Saint Joseph’s Regional as Sir Lawrence Wargrave, and Jaden Urso of Closter as Dr. Armstrong.

The top-tier AHA Stage Crew, which just earned a Metro Award for its work on “The Mystery of Edwin Drood,” will be back in action for this production.
“And Then There Were None” also marks the directing debut of Assistant Director Allyx Miles, a senior from Stony Point, New York, as she was given scenes to stage on her own.

“She is spreading her Angel wings,” Collins said of her assistant.

Tickets for “And Then There Were None” are currently available on booktix.com for $15 each.

Founded by the School Sisters of Notre Dame in 1879, the Academy of the Holy Angels is the oldest private girls’ school in New Jersey. While AHA is steeped in Catholic tradition, this prestigious high school serves young women from a broad spectrum of cultural and religious backgrounds. Over time, thousands of women have passed through AHA’s portals. Many go on to study at some of the nation’s best universities, earning high-ranking positions in medicine, government, law, education, public service, business, arts, and athletics. The Academy’s current leaders continue to further the SSND mission to provide each student with the tools she needs to reach the fullness of her potential—spiritually, intellectually, socially, and physically, by offering a first-rate education in a nurturing environment where equal importance is placed on academic excellence, character development, moral integrity, and service to others.
