Williamsport High School brings ‘Clue’ to the stage

Williamsport High School’s drama department is hard at work to bring “Clue” to the stage at 7 p.m. on Friday and Saturday. A matinee show will begin at 2 p.m. on Sunday. All productions will take place in the auditorium at the high school. There is a cost.

Based on the popular board game of the same name, the whodunit comedy begins at a dinner party hosted by Mr. Boddy, where his butler, Wadsworth, admits that Boddy’s been blackmailing his visitors, all of whom have been given aliases upon their arrival. When Boddy turns up murdered, all are suspects, and they must work together to solve the crime.

“This amazing cast will have audiences both on the edge of their seats and rolling in the aisles with laughter,” said high school drama teacher Marie Fox, director of the show. “It is a zany, fast-paced show sure to entertain.”

The play stars: senior Leo Daverio as Wadsworth, freshman Mairead Ferry as Yvette, senior Annika Waffenschmidt as Miss Scarlet, senior Maggie Dickinson-Sherry as Mrs. Peacock, junior Zoe Wagner as Mrs. White, junior Quahme’ Powell as Col. Mustard, junior Gale Hall as Professor Plum, senior Levi Roush as Mr. Green, senior Brian Bond as Mr. Boddy, sophomore Nevaeh Williams as The Cook, senior Alexis Griess as The Singing Telegram Girl, junior Connor Gautieri as The Motorist, and freshman Cameron Sims as The Cop.

Those in the ensemble include Riccardo, freshman Teagan Marty, junior Aaryka Goodwell and senior Zola Riccardo.

The screenplay is by Jonathan Lynn and additional material by Hunter Foster, Eric Price and Sandy Rustin.
