This January, step out of the cold and into a world filled with mystery and intrigue as Grand Rapids Civic Theatre produces a dramatic masterpiece. Written by the grande dame of mystery, Agatha Christie’s And Then There Were None will keep you guessing until the curtain goes down. Adapted for the stage in 1943, it was a smash hit on the West End and Broadway and it is still surprising audiences today -- even mystery fans may be stunned to realize the play has two possible endings! Ten strangers are summoned to a remote island. All that the guests have in common is that each carries a past filled with dark secrets. When they gather for dinner expecting to meet their host, it becomes evident that they have been summoned to atone for those secrets. Which is the greater struggle, the burden of guilt or the quest for retribution?

Rob Little's outlook on life can be summed-up in two words: Pure Optimism. While working in a lucrative position as a computer programmer for IBM, he decided to take a huge risk. The Detroit-born comic sent out an all-company e-mail that read "If you aren't happy here, quit your job and follow your dream." IBM promptly gave him his walking papers, but getting fired was a blessing for Rob and comedy lovers nationwide. A sketch comedy player on the Fox Sports Net Show, "The Best Damn Sports Show Period" and "Last Call with Carson Daly," Little uses his training from the world famous Second City Comedy Club to create routines that are inventive, funny, spontaneous, and completely unique.
