Rushville Republican

RUSHVILLE — The RCHS theatre department will present the comedic murder mystery CLUE on Nov. 9, 10, and 11. The play, based off Parker Brothers board game of the same name, follows the 1985 movie script starring Tim Curry, Eileen Brennan, and Christopher Lloyd (to name a few.) The play, set in 1954, takes place in a secluded New England mansion where six strangers have been invited to a dinner party. Once all the guests have arrived, it’s not long before it’s revealed that all the guests are being blackmailed. As deception begins to work its spell on the party, bodies begin piling up while a murderer makes short work of eliminating anyone connected to the blackmailer.

Wadsworth, the house butler played by Jessica Miller, will lead the audience and cast through this quick-witted 90 minute mystery. And just when the audience thinks they have the ending figured out, a new ending

is revealed! With precision and professionalism, the high school cast will perform a different ending each night so the mystery remains fresh and entertaining.
