Samohi Theatre to present Clue: On Stage! live and in person
Six eccentric strangers have been invited to a remote New England manor for a dinner party on a dark and stormy night. By whom and for what purpose remains a mystery, even as the staff and fellow guests begin to drop dead before your very eyes. Clue: On Stage! is a wacky whodunnit that will keep you laughing.
“A meal with murder and blackmail on the menu!…Add (weapons), a falling chandelier, a trap-door, many mistaken identities, a pile of dead bodies, lots of farcical actions and improbable incidents, and you have the makings of a joyous evening.” (Broadway World)
From Santa Monica High School Director Kate Barraza: “Murder mysteries have long entertained readers and audiences who enjoy figuring out “Who Done It?” But Clue is an especially engaging comedic murder mystery, as it was inspired by the classic board game, a favorite of multiple generations.
Many of us grew up with the beloved characters: Mrs. Peacock, Mr. Green, Colonel Mustard, Professor Plum, Mrs. White and Miss. Scarlet with their arsenal of familiar weapons. Our butler Wadsworth, our maid Yvette and our Cook round out the cast for this madcap, slapstick romp. In addition to its popularity and familiar characters, Clue offers specific learning opportunities for theatre students in regard to the timing of the comedy and the building of suspense and urgency. These Samohi students have come out of distance learning like champions. It’s exciting to watch them prepare to perform before a live audience for the first time in almost two years.”
