The popular repertory theater group North County Players is bringing the historical stage thriller, “Passage Into Fear,” to the San Marcos Civic Center’s Hearth Theatre this April.
“Passage Into Fear” is inspired by noir classics like Alfred Hitchcock’s “The Lady Vanishes” and “Strangers on a Train” and Agatha Christie’s “Murder on the Orient Express.”
The play, set in 1917 during the waning days of World War I is being presented in conjunction with a series of the 100-year observances of the Great War taking place not only in the San Diego area, but across the globe.
The early twentieth century is further brought to life by period correct music, sets, props and costumes, along with computer-controlled lighting and sound effects. As a result many attendees tell us the experience feels as much like a movie as it does a play.
The cast and crew include John Aviles, Marsi Carr, Shannon Linder, Betsy Toker, Charlie Thompson, Peter Bunn, Audrey Linder, Laura Makey, Amber Stroyer, Julio C. Mas, Jeff Makey, Milburn Stevens, and Pamela Wise.
This is the same production group that brought last year’s hit production of “Scrooge” (“Mr. Scrooge & Mr. Dickens”) to San Marcos (and will again December 2015).
Thanks in large part to a generous grant from the Supervisor Bill Horn, ticket prices for “Passage Into Fear” are a fraction of what attendees would expect to pay for a production of this quality, just $10 general, $7 for children/seniors/military.

100% of proceeds benefit local veterans and nonprofit organizations. As a special incentive, attendees will receive double their ticket price in gifts and other offers from event sponsors including McDonalds, Chick-fil-A, FroYo Love, and others. See ad on page X for more information.
“Passage Into Fear” performances take place 7PM on April 10 and 11 with a 2PM matinee on April 12 at Hearth Theatre located in the heart of the San Marcos Civic Center.
