It's a dark and stormy night…
Well, not in Ahwatukee except for Friday and Saturday, Nov. 2 and 3, at the Black Box Theater at Mountain Pointe High School, where student thespians will present the comedy-mystery “Clue.”
It will be presented at 6 p.m. Nov. 2 and 2 p.m. and 6 p.m. Nov. 3.
Based on the cult film and the board game, “Clue” has been described by Broadway critics as a “madcap comedy that will keep you guessing until the final twist.
“You've been invited to a very unusual dinner party,” said one critic describing the plot. “Each of the guests has an alias, the butler offers a variety of weapons, and the host is, well . . . dead.
“So whodunnit? Join the iconic oddballs known as Scarlet, Plum, White, Green, Peacock, and Mustard as they race to find the murderer in Boddy Manor before the body count stacks up.”
"Clue is directed by theater club mentor and teacher Kimberly Bonagofski, who said, she picked it because the movie "has always been one of my favorite movies."
"So,when I found out it was a play, I jumped on the opportunity to direct it," she added, promising "Fun, over-the-top characters, mystery and surprises."
