Through The Night


February 4 & 5, 1954


Scottish Rite Temple


“Through The Night” is a mystery-comedy with a plot that threatens the stability of a family when murder strikes. While entertaining in his summer home, prior to the coming wedding of his niece, the master of the house is killed by his business manager. The murderer cleverly disguises his crime and shifts suspicion upon the Owl, a prowler in the summer-colony vicinity. After the Owl begins to help the poor and establishes his innocence, the murderer turns the ray of guilt to a strange and charming but absent-minded guest, Bunny. The awkard assistance of the village police results in the near escape of the murderer, but acting quickly, the bride-to-be and the maid of honor catch him.

In January, Players were featured in a full page article about the Royce Hall. The building, located at the southeast corner of Front and Main, had been constructed in 1860 and used for traveling shows, dances, lectures, mass meetings, concerts, benefits and exhibitions. In 1945, Players rented the third floor for workshop and rehearsal space. There were seven photos of Players board members and cast members of “Through The Night.” Members were dressed up in vintage costumes to honor the life of the building and to show how Players had brought life and activity back to the old building.
