    "The Unexpected Guest" stars (from left) David Foster, Julianna Pereira, Meagan Castillo and Steve Ruggles, at the Wade James Theater in Edmonds.

The Driftwood Players opens its season tonight with a 1958 Agatha Christie murder mystery, "The Unexpected Guest."
As usual in Christie's thrillers, the audience has an entire cast of suspects to weed through: Is it the wife of the dead man found standing over her husband's body with a gun in her hand? The husband's mistress?
Maybe it's the dead man's mother, or perhaps it's goody-two-shoes Miss Barrett.
"The Unexpected Guest" is directed by Martin J. Mackenzie and the suspects include Basil Bourque, Trevor Brandt, Meagan Castillo, David Foster, Jon Loina, Vicki Lynn Maxey, Thomas Kai McLellan, Juliana Pereira, Steve Ruggles and Justin Tinsley.
To find out whodunit, head to The Wade James Theatre, 950 Main St., Edmonds, for performances from Thursdays through Sundays through Sept. 29.
Tickets are $22 to $25 for festival seating. Call 425-774-9600 or purchase online at www.driftwoodplayers.com. Tickets also may be purchased at the box office at the Wade James Theatre or at The Driftwood Players, 306 Main St., Edmonds, in the lower level of the Bank of America building.
The Taproot Theatre continues tonight with "The Matchmaker," a Thornton Wilder comedy that was the inspiration for "Hello, Dolly."
A matchmaking widow, Dolly Levi, meddles with the love life of weathy businessman Horace Vandergelder leading to a complicated web of lies, surpises and hilarious complications.
"The Matchmaker" is Taproot's final selection for 2013. It runs Wednesday through Saturday evenings with Sunday matinees, through Oct. 19. Tickets are $15 to $40 and available by calling 206-781-9707 or at the box office, 204 N. 85th St., Seattle.
