A CHILLING tale of murder, mystery and greed comes to Darlington later this month with a stage adaptation of The Cat and The Canary.

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

Heading the stellar cast is silver screen and Bond-girl legend Britt Ekland, whose numerous films include The Man with The Golden Gun with Roger Moore, The Wicker Man with Christopher Lee, and Get Carter with Michael Caine.

Building on the decade-long success of The Agatha Christie Theatre Company, The Classic Thriller Theatre Company presents their fifth production, with an adaptation of the stage thriller which went on to spawn three hit movie versions.

The Cat and The Canary runs at Darlington Hippodrome from Tuesday 21 to Saturday, September 25. There will be a post show Q&A after the Wednesday evening performance.
