Fundraiser Brings ‘Dial M for Murder’ to the Stage

Classic mystery gets a modern twist

Thrills and chills, all for a great cause! Mystic Valley Elder Services (MVES) will host a performance of “Dial M for Murder” Thursday, May 16, at Greater Boston Stage Company, 395 Main St., Stoneham. The show is MVES’ annual Spring for Independence fundraiser, benefitting older adults and people with disabilities in our community.

In “Dial M for Murder,” Tony believes his wife Margot is having an affair, and he wants revenge. He plans out the perfect murder. Or is it? The audience follows twists and turns as the suspense builds – will Tony succeed in his attempt and will he be caught?

“Dial M for Murder” may be best known as the 1954 Hitchcock film, but it started out as a successful stage play. Clever and fast-paced, the current show puts a modern spin on the original.

MVES invites theatergoers to a pre-show reception at 6 p.m. with complimentary cocktails and hors d’oeuvres. The show starts at 7:30 p.m.

Tickets are available for $80 each at For more about the show, please contact MVES’ Development Department at 781-388-4802 or [email protected]
