Sulphur Springs High School Wildcat Theatre invites the community to the department’s fall production, “Clue: Onstage (High School Edition).” This suspenseful comedy, based on the classic board game and the 1980s movie, is a hilarious farce-meets-murder-mystery, notes Lesha Woodard, SSHS Director of Theatre and Auditorium Manager.

The tale begins at a remote mansion, where six mysterious guests assemble for an unusual dinner party — murder and blackmail are on the menu. When the host turns up dead, they all become suspects. Led by the Butler, Wadsworth; Ms. Scarlett; Professor Plum; Mrs. White; Mr. Green; Mrs. Peacock; and Colonel Mustard race to find the killer as the body counts stacks up. 

“Clue” will be presented by two different casts, the Blue Cast and the Yellow Cast, who will alternate days of performances, although some thespians will pull double duty, performing and/or and be working behind the scenes for each presentation. The main cast includes:

  • The Butler, Wadsworth — junior Jolene Reed, Blue Cast; sophomore Aiden Woodard, Yellow Cast.
  • Ms. Scarlett — junior Caroline Prickette, Blue Cas; senior Danielle Verlander, Yellow Cast.

  • Mrs. White — sophomore Audrey Tanton, Blue Cast; junior Talley Brown, Yellow Cast.
  • Mr. Green — junior Oliver Falter
  • Mrs. Peacock —freshman Emma Boatman, Blue Cast; Khira Young, Yellow Cast-senior.
  • Colonel Mustard — freshman Nathan Bilyeu.

Senior Ricardo Chavarria; juniors Addison Bradley and Kaela Gardner; sophomores Aspen Mayhew and Ally Goldsmith; and freshmen Conner Curtis, Cara Feagin, Stori Shropshire, Kai Goodman and Amani Finnie round out the cast. 

Crew members include junior stage manager Cadyn Spigner; senior Mike West;  juniors Daniel Gardner and Max Crocker; sophomores Alaya Mims and David Farmer; and freshmen Russell Petry, Taylor Price, Connor Quick, Chloie Pierce, and Ravn Snyder.

The play is rated PG for mature humor, gunshots, and comic violence.
