Audiences are raving about the Poplar Pike Playhouse’s latest production Clue: On Stage. “Hilarious! It was very enjoyable and it kept you guessing the entire way,” said Amanda Killebrew. This version of Clue is a play based on the classic board game as well as the movie, both with the same name. “I remember the movie with Tim Curry and thought it had a phenomenal cast," claimed John Whitehead, a self-proclaimed Clue fanatic.
The play begins on a dark and stormy night at a very unusual party. Each guest has a colorful alias, a variety of weapons, and the host is, well…dead. The question on everyone’s mind is ‘whodunnit’? Join the lively cast of characters known as Scarlet, Plum, White, Green, Peacock, and Mustard as they race to find the murderer in Boddy Manor before the body count increases.
The students of Germantown High School work to bring Boddy Manor to life with it’s iconic characters: Miss Scarlet, Professor Plum, Mrs. White, Mr. Green, and Mrs. Peacock. “It was very playful and the costumes were fantastic,” said long time PPP patron Ann Argodale.
Audiences are excited for opening weekend. “The production level is very high, as always, and the students are so talented,” said Whitehead. “I loved the timing and choreography of the game pieces.”
