Clue: On Stage, presented by Pennsbury High School’s Thespian Troupe 830, is playing in the Orange Auditorium at Pennsbury High School West, located at S. Olds Blvd. in Fairless Hills starting at 7 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 4, and Saturday, Nov. 5.
Based on the Paramount film and the Hasbro board game, the stage show is adapted from the screenplay by Jonathan Lynn, with additional material by Hunter Foster, Sandy Rustin and Eric Price.
The show is described as a “murder-mystery comedy thriller” that follows six guests at a mysterious dinner party where they find themselves implicated as murder suspects when their host turns up dead. Wadsworth, the butler, Mrs. Peacock, Mr. Green, Colonel Mustard and other guests attempt to find the killer as the body count builds. Following in the footsteps of the film, the project bills itself as a “comedy whodunit.”
Casting includes thespians Addison Blumberg, Dylan Cardone, Cassi Daley, Ryan Levanthal, Jaymes Lewis, Shaelyn Nuschke, Jacob Rabinowitz and Scott Wilson and featuring Charlotte Block, Meghan Crohe, Jason Kaplan, Ben Pulka, Annamarie Radzinski and Ellie Umstead.
The Drama Club has been a part of Pennsbury High School since the 1950s and a member of the International Thespian Society since 1967. It is under the guidance of director Matthew South, assistant director Damari Fallacaro and costume designer Ruth Schanbacher.
“We are excited at trying our hand at this madcap comedy that never stops,” said South. “It is full of laughs and keeps you on the edge of your seat trying to figure out who did it.”
Tickets for Clue: On Stage are $10 for adults and $5 for students and can be purchased through showtix4u.com or at the door 45 minutes before showtime, cash only.
