The cast of Clue prepare for their Nov. 18 and 19 performances.

Mystery, comedy, excitement, suspense – the cast and crew of this year’s upper school play has been working hard to deliver it all. 

Based on the movie, which itself is based off the classic board game, Clue is a thrilling parody of mystery stories. At the start of the play there is thunder, lightning, dogs bark, and a colorful cast of quirky characters arrive for dinner at Boddy Manor. As the night progresses, however, the strangers come to suspect that something more dangerous – perhaps even deadly – may be afoot. What will happen to Mrs. Peacock, Colonel Mustard, Mrs. White, Professor Plum, Mr. Green, and Miss Scarlet? You can find out on November 18th and 19th at 7:00 p.m. 

The sensational story will be performed by a cast of upper school actors, who have been working for weeks to perfect the fast-paced show. Guided by the play’s director, Mrs. Juge, they’ve worked to memorize their lines, hone their characters’ unique physicalities, and master the comedic timing necessary for the show to resonate with their audience. 

But the show would be nothing without its crew, led by Ms. Fernandes, who have gone all-out. Step foot in the A&A, and you’re sure to see the elaborate set they’ve created to mirror the board game. Boddy Manor comes to life on Montrose’s stage. The costumes are historically-based (Clue takes place during the ‘60s and explores McCarthyism), as well as color-coded. Mrs. Wanner and some students scoured Vinebrook and even made some pieces from scratch to get the costumes right for Clue. 

We can’t wait for everyone to enjoy the show we have put together this Friday and Saturday. Clue is such a blast, and you’d regret missing it. The entire process has been so much fun, and I know performing it will be as well!
