|Get A Clue! Tickets For The Fall Play “Clue” Go Live On Friday!|
Was it Miss Scarlet in the Study with a rope, or was it Professor Plum with a knife in the Kitchen?
Find out in a couple weeks when “Clue: High School Edition” takes the stage at Stevenson’s Black Box Theater as the Fall Play. Tickets for the production, which will run Thursday, Sept. 22 (7 p.m.), Friday, Sept. 23 (7 p.m.) and Saturday, Sept. 24 (2 p.m. and 7 p.m.), will go live on Friday and a link will be supplied in Friday’s Daily Digest.
“Clue: High School Edition” is based on the iconic 1985 Paramount movie which was inspired by the classic Hasbro board game. It is a hilarious farce-meets-murder mystery. The tale begins at a remote mansion, where six mysterious guests assemble for an unusual dinner party…and murder and blackmail are on the menu. When their host turns up dead, the guests all become suspects.
Led by Wadsworth – the butler, Miss Scarlett, Professor Plum, Mrs. White, Mr. Green, Mrs. Peacock and Colonel Mustard race to find the killer as the body count stacks up. Clue is the comedy “whodunit” that will leave both cult-fans and newcomers in stitches as they try to figure out…WHO did it, WHERE, and with WHAT!
As an interesting twist for this particular production, the audience will be on three sides of what is known as a “thrust stage” and the cast will go through the aisles and around the audience frequently. The goal is that audience members will feel like they are right in the middle of the action and stuck in the mansion with the characters!
