Dial M for Murder is a well-known play written by Frederick Knott and originally directed for film by Alfred Hitchcock. However, The Gercharel Players – who performed the classic on stage recently at Old Town Hall in Babylon Village – were not daunted by its theatric history.
The collaboration of producer Charles L. Bandler and director Eric Young – along with the cast of actors, Nancy Klimpel, Steven Gozdziewski, Michael McKasty, Bill Poulos and Stephen Grossman – would’ve make Knott and Hitchcock proud.
The theater troupe performed their rendition to a packed house several weeks ago on an opening night that was promoted by the Babylon Citizens Council on the Arts (BACCA), which is headquartered in Lindenhurst and run by Shawn Cullinane, BACCA president and the Lindenhurst Village Administrator.
The play will run until May 1 across Long Island. This show is a treat for all fans of Hitchcock and community theater.
