A CHILLING story of murder, mystery and greed arrives in Darlington later this month with a theatrical adaptation of The Cat and The Canary.

And now singer-songwriter, actor and boy band superstar Antony Costa has joined the cast to make his Hippodrome debut.

At the head of the stellar cast is the big screen and Bond-girl legend Britt Ekland, whose many films include The Man with The Golden Gun starring Roger Moore, The Wicker Man starring Christopher Lee, and Get Carter starring Michael Caine.

Building on the decade-long success of The Agatha Christie Theater Company, The Classic Thriller Theater Company presents its fifth production, with an adaptation of the stage thriller that spawned three blockbuster film versions.

The Cat and The Canary takes place at Darlington Racecourse from Tuesday September 21 to Saturday September 25. There will be a question-and-answer session after the Wednesday night show.
