As a great detective, and a butler named Wadsworth once said, “The game’s afoot!” Avonworth High School’s 2018 Fall Play is Clue. It is a play filled to the brim with comedy and suspense! It is a show I personally recommend everyone go and check out. From the costumes, to the props, it is a masterpiece that the cast and crew have been committed to for the past few weeks. Currently all shows are SOLD OUT. There will be a rehearsal open to paying audiences on Monday, November 12th at 4:00 PM. The regular show dates are as follows:
- November 14 at 7:30 PM
- November 15 at 7:30 PM
- November 16 at 7:30 PM
- November 17 at 2:00 PM and 7:30 PM
To draw back the curtain, and let you, the reader, in on some information about the show, I interviewed the director, Mrs. Frauenholz. Here’s an inside look into Clue: On Stage.
Q: What made you inclined to select Clue as our Fall Play?
A: “I was looking for a large ensemble show because of the number of seniors we have, and I also wanted a challenge for the tech crew because we have three seniors in charge of the group, and in charge of lighting and sound.”
Q: Were you surprised Clue sold out as quickly as it did?
A: “Very much so, I think it is an indication of our reputation. It is an indication of how well we are received outside of school. Often times we sell out because of people outside of school, not necessarily inside the school.”
Q: Have you ever previously opened a rehearsal day to paying audiences?
A: “No, never. We did a special performance with scenes from Anne Frank, in school, for the eighth graders, at the request of Mrs. Galecki a couple of years ago. And then we had a discussion, a talk back, with the actors on the Holocaust and stuff like that. We are trying to arrange something like that with Mrs. Tuller and the seventh graders because they are studying a unit about logic and mystery. So we hope to do that the Monday before Thanksgiving. But, no. We have never opened up a rehearsal, kinda like a performance. We have invited people to rehearsal to see what we do, once for Fall Play and once for Spring Musical, but not like this.”
Q: If you could describe Clue in one word, what would it be?
A: “(laughter) Maccap.”
Don’t miss out! We will be awaiting your arrival at Boddy Manor…
