Witness for the Prosecution is the gripping tale of a Dallas crime victim, who with the aid of local cops, picks her alleged assailant out of a photo lineup in which the chief suspect was circled in red marker, with the words "Pick this guy, stupid!" printed in large, bold letters. In a surprise twist, he turns out to be innocent. No, wait. That's actually tomorrow's news. Witness is, in fact, an Agatha Christie play about deceit and double-crosses and mystery women. The Garland Civic Theatre begins its 40th season with a production of the classic through September 15 at the Granville Arts Center, 300 N. Fifth St. in downtown Garland. Tickets are $16 to $20 with discounts for youth, seniors and groups. Call 972-205-2790 or visit garlandcivictheatre.org.
