Preview: Fall play “Clue” is a real whodunit

Encinal’s fall play opens December 1st

Get ready for a grand whodunit. Encinal’s Drama Club will perform an on-stage production of the infamous board game Clue for this year’s fall play.

The cast, crew, and directors have been working murderously to take this story off the board and bring it to life. When the cast isn’t dramatically gasping, pointing fingers, and firing fake guns at each other, they’ve been spending all their time off-stage playing games together and getting to know each other outside of their kooky characters.

“I really love how much we’ve bonded as a cast, how we are all able to talk to each other and have fun at rehearsal when we’re not working,” said Junior Inky Arneson who plays the French maid, Yvette. “I’ve really enjoyed getting to know everyone and getting to know the people I did know better.”

The show is especially exciting because of its new co-directors, August Arneson, and Encinal’s very own science teacher, Ms.Taylor. 

“My favorite part about directing Clue has been how much I laugh every rehearsal,” said Taylor. “Last night at our final dress rehearsal I was crying laughing almost on the floor at our final scene.”

Of course, this show holds drama and excitement for the cast, but is also packed full of thrill and hilarity for its audience. 

“It’s a murder mystery, it’s hilarious, it’s based on a board game. It caters to all audiences. So why not come is the real question!”

The play opens this Friday, Dec.1 at 7:00 PM. There are also shows Saturday at 2:00PM and 7:00PM. Student tickets can be purchased for $5 on GoFan. Adult tickets are $15.
