Bay Street Theater’s second mainstage production of the summer, “Dial ‘M’ for Murder,” will star Mamie Gummer, Rosa Gilmore, Erich Bergen, Max Gordon Moore and Reg Rogers. Frederick Knott’s 1950’s murder mystery has been adapted by Jeffrey Hatcher and will be directed by Walter Bobbie.

The production begins with previews on June 27, opening night Saturday, July 1, and continues through Sunday, July 23. “Dial ‘M’ for Murder” is an edge-of-your-seat thriller, adapted from the celebrated suspense thriller made famous by Alfred Hitchcock’s 1954 masterpiece film. Tony suspects his wife, Margot — a wealthy socialite — is having an affair. As he plots to have her killed in this stylish game of cat and mouse, the tension grows, and the twists and turns will keep you guessing to the very end.

The creative team includes scenic designer Anna Louizos, costume designer Jeff Mahshie, lighting designer Donald Holder, sound designer Dan Moses Schreier, fight director Thomas Schall, dialect coach Deborah Hecht, casting Calleri Jensen Davis, props designer Nicole Rozanski, assistant director Stefanie Anarumo and production stage manager Melissa Sparks.

Tickets start at $49.99 at 631-725-9500 or baystreet.org.
