In celebration of the show’s 30-year anniversary, the Miami Trace Dramatic Arts Club has announced this year’s production of Clue.
The drama club is asking the community to plan to attend, Nov. 20 and 21 at 7:30 p.m. and Nov. 22 at 2:30 p.m., its production of a murder mystery classic. Tickets are $5 for students and seniors, and $7 for adults.
“We did this show back in 2007 and this is the first time I have ever repeated a show for the fall play at Miami Trace,” director Laura Hottinger said during an interview Thursday. “This is a big anniversary for the production and I thought it was a good enough reason to repeat it. Clue is my favorite play we have done since I began about 10 years ago and I am happy to bring it to the stage once again.”
Whether you’re a fan of the board game, the movie, the cast and crew, or just theater in general, join them as they try and figure out “whodunit?”
“Rehearsals are going good, there have been a few challenges with so many other events going on the past month, but nothing we can’t handle,” Hottinger said. “The students are all doing so well and learning their parts. We are really excited about it and can’t wait to show it to the community.”
An addition to the production this year was assistant director Andrea Johnson. The play, going along with the movie and board game, will feature three different endings for the audience. The play will attempt to not only show them what happened, but also convey the theme of Clue, that anyone could be the culprit.
“We would love the community to come out and see what our actors are doing,” Hottinger said. “We only have a few productions left to perform on this stage, in this auditorium, in the next couple years. The community has been so great at supporting all of the plays we hold and we thank them for it. Many families will come and see their students perform and we appreciate the help in making sure their child makes it to play practice among their very busy schedules, with band and sports to schedule around. This play is a lot of fun and we hope to see you there.”
