SC Theatre Department to Present ‘Clue’ March 12-14

The Southwestern College theatre department will present “Clue,” a comedy murder mystery, on Friday and Saturday, March 12 and 13, at 7:30 p.m., and on Sunday, March 14, at 2 p.m., in Messenger Auditorium in the Darbeth Fine Arts Center. Seating will be limited due to social distancing so reserving tickets is encouraged.

Based on the iconic 1985 Paramount movie which was inspired by the classic Hasbro board game, “Clue” is a farce-meets-murder mystery. The tale begins at a remote mansion, where six mysterious guests assemble for an unusual dinner party where murder and blackmail are on the menu. When their host turns up dead, they all become suspects. Led by Wadsworth – the Butler, Miss Scarlett, Professor Plum, Mrs. White, Mr. Green, Mrs. Peacock, and Colonel Mustard race to find the killer as the body count stacks up. “Clue” is the comedy whodunit that will leave audience members trying to figure out who did it, where, and with what.

“At a time when we all need a break; it is exciting to do a live performance that the entire family can enjoy,” says director Allyson Moon.  “The cast and crew have been having a lot of fun with this comedy murder mystery, and they want you to have one too.  Plan to wear your mask, be seated as a group but distanced from others, and have a really good time.”

The cast includes Jamieson Campo as Wadsworth, Jennifer Warren as Yvette, Savannah Joldersma as The Cook, Brynn Hampton as Miss Scarlet, Emily Robinson as Mrs. Peacock, Markie Swanson as Mrs. White, Brett Leise as Colonel Mustard, D’Marcus Chase as Professor Plum, Maya Damron as Mr. Green, Liam Cunningham as Mr. Boddy and The Chief of Police, Olivia Worsham as The Motorist, Lizzy Santana as The “Broken Down Car” Cop, Miranda Hofmeister as The Singing Telegram Girl, and Olivia Worsham, Maeson Bryant, and Savannah Joldersma as Back-Up Cops. 

The technical positions for “Clue” are set design and master carpenter, Jacob Reynolds; paint charge, Markie Swanson; sound design, Kenny Allman; lighting design, Ben Juhnke; props, Jennifer Warren and Savannah Joldersma; costume designer, Maya Damron; costumer, Katie Miller; box office, Miranda Hofmeister; master electricians, Telara Day and Liam Cunningham; stage manager, Kayla Huddelston; publicity, Jennifer Warren, and hair and makeup, Jamieson Campo.
