This past weekend, Heritage Hall’s Howard Theatre became the scene of a hilarious whodunnit when the curtain rose on the Upper School production of Clue. Based on the 1985 film and famous board game, the play was suspense-filled and fun.
The story follows six mysterious guests of a dinner party who are being blackmailed for what can only be described as “thoroughly un-American crimes.” When the host turns up dead, they all become suspects. Though filled with mystery, many of the actors admitted the play’s many comedic moments often had them breaking character during rehearsals due to fits of laughter. Following the performance, it was easy to see why.
Adding to the chaotic and hilarious plot was a unique set impressively constructed by the Upper School Stagecraft class.
It’s no mystery why this play was a resounding success!
