A classic murder mystery board game will come to life at Garner-Hayfield-Ventura High School this weekend.
The school’s drama department will present “Clue, On Stage!” at 7 p.m. on Friday and Saturday at the GHV High School auditorium, 605 W. Lyons St., in Garner.
The production, written by Jonathan Lynn, is based on the cult classic film made popular in the mid-1980s.
In “Clue, On Stage!” six guests are invited to a dinner party by an anonymous host. They are given aliases — Colonel Mustard, Mrs. White, Mr. Green, Mrs. Peacock, Professor Plum and Miss Scarlet — and although they are discouraged from revealing personal information, it’s soon discovered that all of them have fallen victim to the same blackmailer, their host of the evening.
Each is presented with a weapon and an option: pay their extortionist double or kill Wadsworth, the innocent butler.
You have free articles remaining.
What follows is a madcap, slapstick evening full of murder, mystery and laughs as they seek to puzzle the culprit among criminals.
Those cast in the production are Eric Heitland, Wadsworth; Sarah Schmidt, Yvette; Kenzie Cole, Miss Scarlet; Holly Piper, Mrs. Peacock; Abby Christians, Mrs. White; Nolan Balk, Colonel Mustard; Travis Schmidt, Professor Plum; Patrick Carew, Mr. Green; Brandon Brown, Mr. Boddy; Makenna Rayhons, Cook; Dylan Piper, motorist; Isaac Bell, cop; and Chloe Frank, singing telegram girl.
