Mr. Fitz gives an enduring speech to the drama cast team. The members try their best to keep their heads up after an exhausting day of rehearsing.

The genre of murder mysteries may excite adrenaline and excitement among viewers. A particular play is in the production that perfectly fits such description: Clue.

“Clue” is a classic and thrilling tale that follows six guests summoned to a mansion by an invitation they mysteriously get in the mail. Then, a mysterious death of a character named Mr. Body causes high uncertainty and tension between the six people.

If you’re a fan of murder mysteries and classic board games, then you won’t want to miss the upcoming performances of “Clue” at the Wilsonville High School’s theater. This exciting play is set to start on May 11th and will run for six performances.

Cast member Teddy Skyler says “It’s going to be a lot of fun because since we have a smaller cast, most of the people will get to be on stage the whole time.” With a month of time still ahead of them, the class of actors have already been rehearsing for the past two weeks. 

The play features a talented cast of actors who bring the characters to life, along with a clever set. “Another thing I think is cool is that it’s set at this mansion, and on each end of the building, you can rotate the walls to show a different room,” commented Skyler. 

Drama has three main performances throughout the school year, and “Clue” will be the third and final one, and it will be Skyler’s and all other seniors’ last play performance in high school. 

With six performances over the course of several days, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to catch the show and experience the excitement firsthand.

So if you’re looking for entertainment worth watching for, mark your calendar for May 11th.
