The award-winning Woodinville High School Theatre Company is bringing mystery and murder back to the WHS Theater with Clue: On Stage. This madcap who-dun-it brings the classic board game and motion picture to the stage. The show runs October 29 and 30, and November 3-6 at 7:00 pm, in the Woodinville High School Theater – delivering murderous mayhem right around Halloween!
As you can see from the posters below, the WHS Theatre Company has double-cast the play in some parts to allow more of our talented actors to make a wicked return to the WHS Theatre stage. The cast is comprised of 21 of Woodinville High School Theatre Company’s students, including seniors Aidan Robb, Allison Calhoon, Carolyn Dunbar, Charlie Nunes, David Fountain, Kasey Christie, Maggie Mus, Jacob Price, Georgia Willis, and Pedro Cunha.
Clue is a hilarious farce-meets-murder mystery, based on the screenplay by Jonathan Lynn and written by Sandy Rustin with inspiration from the classic Hasbro board game. The tale begins at a remote mansion where six mysterious guests assemble for an unusual dinner party where murder and blackmail are on the menu. When their host, Ms. Boddy, turns up dead, they all become suspects. Led by Wadsworth - the butler - Miss Scarlett, Professor Plum, Mrs. White, Mr. Green, Mrs. Peacock, and Colonel Mustard race to find the killer as the body count stacks up. Clue is the comedy whodunit that will leave both cult fans and newcomers in stitches as they try to figure out… WHO did it WHERE and with WHAT!
Many of the technical aspects of the show, everything from set building and sound to publicity, are handled by crews of students from the WHS Technical Theatre program. Technical theatre students include Joey Roberts (Stage Manager), Sarah Mellor (Technical Director), Marisa Leinenwever and Max Vandall (Sound Directors), Simon Smith (Lighting Director), Phoenix Carver (Costumer), McEwen Guitierrez (Master Carpenter), Isabelle Cobbley (Props Head), Kasey Christie and Saydia Phillips (Hair and Makeup), Anya Egts (House Manager), and Maggie Mus (Publicity). Come out and see this triumphant return of the Woodinville High School Theatre Company post-pandemic!
The show is adapted, directed, and designed by Josh Butchart; with support from Katharina Bomers-Muller (Producer), Stephanie Penoyer (Assistant Producer), Steve Cooper (Lights), Nathaniel Gibbs (Sound), Marsha Stueckle (Costumes), and the Woodinville Drama Boosters, led by Emily Mus and Jenny Webb.
