Get A Clue! Fall Play “Clue: High School Edition” Starts Thursday

Was it Miss Scarlet in the Study with a rope, or was it Professor Plum with a knife in the Kitchen?

The audience will find out this week when “Clue: High School Edition” takes the stage at Stevenson’s Black Box Theater as the Fall Play. The production runs Thursday (7 p.m.), Friday (7 p.m.) and Saturday (2 p.m. and 7 p.m.) and is SOLD OUT!

“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.

**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!

Important Reminder For Fans At Stevenson Events

Student Section Expectations
Student spectators are expected to cheer positively for the Stevenson Patriots. We ask that everyone demonstrate an attitude of good sportsmanship no matter what feelings of loyalty they may have toward one team or the other. Obscene cheers, the throwing of objects, and verbal or physical indignities directed toward athletes, coaches, or officials have no place in high school athletics. Anyone not displaying appropriate conduct at an athletic event will be asked to leave the event.
