What is Clue(the play) about?

Clue is based on the iconic 1985 movie inspired by the Hasbro Board Game. The plot has to do with a mysterious invitation from an anonymous host at a mansion where six strange guests assemble for an unusual dinner party where murder and blackmail are on the menu. The murder is solved by a detective, while the actual ending differs between productions. The play has three different endings.

 

Play is Based off of this Board Game

 

Brief Synopsis of Play:

“It’s a dark and stormy night, and you’ve been invited to a very unusual dinner party. Each of the guests has an alias, the butler offers a variety of weapons, and the host is, well . . . dead. So whodunnit? Join the iconic oddballs known as Scarlet, Plum, White, Green, Peacock, and Mustard as they race to find the murderer in Boddy Manor before the body count stacks up. Based on the cult classic film and the popular board game,¬†Clue is a madcap comedy that will keep you guessing until the final twist.” (Credits: Mr. Grossman)

“This particular version of the play has some parallels to the movie, but involves a few more twists with variously integrated stage magic, performed by our auxiliary ensemble,” said Mr. Grossman (Theater Director of Play).

 

When is the play? 

The play is occurring on December 3rd and 4th at 7pm.

How is the Play going to work due to COVID?

The play is set up in room 125 (FHS’s Black Box) and Theater is going to live streaming the entire show from the school through YouTube. This way, audience members can watch the show from the safety of their homes!

“Consider this to be like a live tv-studio spectacle, but it is grounded in this theatrical performance, “ said Mr. Grossman.
