Southern Arkansas University Theatre is set to perform “Dial M for Murder” at Harton Theatre starting at 7PM nightly Feb. 2-4 and at 2PM. Feb. 5.

Tickets can be purchased through or by calling 870-235-4255. There is limited seating and the public is encouraged to order tickets early. Prices are $10 per adult/general admission seat and $5 for SAU students, faculty and staff. The performance on Saturday, Feb. 4, will be followed by an actor talk-back.

The thriller, written by Frederick Knott and directed by Richard Vollmer, is a suspense thriller based on the classic 1954 Alfred Hitchcock film. An ex-tennis pro carries out a plot to murder his wife; when things go wrong, he improvises a brilliant plan B.

In addition to directing, Vollmer also serves as set designer. Cason Murphy, theatre director, is the sound designer and voice coach. Fight choreography is by Daniel Spiropoulous.

SAU’s final show of the season and the big musical of the year, “The Little Mermaid,” will run April 20-22 at 7PM nightly and at 2PM on April 23 at Harton Theatre.
