LionHeart Productions is back for its 25th year with “Clue: On Stage”! Two years ago this show was set to open in March 2020, but then everything shut down and we all experienced the ups and downs of the pandemic. After a few cast changes and date changes, the show is finally set to go on. “Clue: On Stage” is a hilarious, campy good time! Based on the popular board game and the 1985 film, the classic murder mystery will have you giggling and wondering “Whodunit?”.
The cast is full of familiar LionHeart alumni along with a couple newcomers. The ensemble is comprised of Melissa Bass as the Cook (and a few other roles), Shannon Carpenter as Mrs. White, Devon Conley as Professor Plum, Anette Deters as Miss Scarlet, Jamie Evans as Mr. Boddy, Searrah Herendeen as Yvette, Anita Jaimes as Mrs. Peacock, Jim Jenkins as Wadsworth, Travis Webb as Mr. Green and Charles D. Zeldenrust as Colonel Mustard. Under the direction of Ron Jenkins, they come to life as the quirky characters whose wild antics will have you laughing throughout the night. Each cast member shines in their roles, but it’s when they are all together in the midst of controlled chaos that they shine the brightest.
Murder and mayhem are prominent throughout the night. Was it Colonel Mustard in the kitchen with the dagger? Or Professor Plum in the library with the rope? Or maybe it was none of them at all! You will have to come to the Grant Fine Arts Center on March 18 at 7:30 pm, March 19 at 7:30pm and March 20 at 2:30pm, or catch it at the Dogwood Center for Performing Arts in Fremont on March 25 at 7:30pm and March 26 at 2:00pm and 7:30pm.
