Calamity Town

Date: January 27, 2022 to January 29, 2022, 7:30 PM
Venue: Sebits Auditorium - 2100 W. University Ave., Wichita, Ks
Sponsor: Friends University

The Event:

Friends University Theatre is pleased to share the college premiere of Calamity Town, Jan. 27 - 30, 2022. The play is based on the 1942 novel of the same name written by Frederick Dannay and Manfred B. Lee, under the pseudonym, Ellery Queen. Calamity Town is an intriguing whodunit play set in a nostalgic New England village. The town is full of inviting and moral folks. However, beneath its calm veneer, lies a disturbing secret and a potential killer in their midst, ready to strike again over the coming holiday. The storys protagonist and amateur sleuth, Ellery, must rightly deduce fact versus fiction before festivities turn fatal and the townsfolk face a tragic fate. The New York Times labeled the story the best mystery produced by Ellery Queen. Come join us for an old-fashioned evening of entertainment, mystery and intrigue! said Director and Friends University Assistant Professor of Drama and Media, Kurt Priebe. This special performance, featuring 12 university students who portray 21 characters, will run Jan. 27-29 at 7:30 p.m. and Jan 30 at 2 p.m. The performances will take place in Sebits Auditorium in the Riney Fine Arts building on the Friends University campus at 2100 W. University Ave., Wichita, Kan. Ticket prices are $12 for adults and $9 for students and seniors. They may be purchased online at or by calling the Fine Arts Box Office at 316-295-5677. Calamity Town was written by Joseph Goodrich and is presented with express permission of Jabberwocky Literary Agency, NYC.
