GENESEO – Was it Col. Mustard in the study with the lead pipe? Or Miss Scarlet in the kitchen with the knife? Or perhaps Prof. Plum in the conservatory with the candlestick?
The Geneseo Community Players will be hosting a winter production of “Clue”, directed by Michael Fambro, at York Central School from Thursday, January 29 through Saturday, January 31st. The shows will take place at 7:30p.m., with an additional 2p.m. matinee performance on Saturday.
The play’s varied cast of characters and room settings should be familiar to anyone who has ever played the classic board game or seen the 1985 cult film based upon it. If you enjoy the board game, this stage adaptation surely will not disappoint.
The story is set at Mr. Boddy’s mansion, where an eccentric collection of strangers has been invited by an unknown host to divulge their deepest secrets. Once gathered, everyone soon discovers they are locked in for the night, and no one is safe from the murderer’s deadly grasp. The laughs pile up, along with the corpses, as the guests split up to search the house and are interrupted by several not-so-innocent bystanders.
The delightful cast includes players from a wide range of surrounding communities. Assuming the role of Wadsworth, the butler, is Hardy VanRy. Portraying familiar game piece roles are: Joan Hamer as Miss Scarlet, Ginny Durbin as Mrs. Peacock, Deirdre Coyle as Mrs. White, Joe DeBell as Mr. Green, Stan Janczak as Professor Plum, and Mark Hopkins as Colonel Mustard.
Rounding out the cast are: Sarah Hill as Yvette the maid, Toby Drowne as Mr. Boddy, Darlene Hunt as the Cook, Jamond Billyard as the Motorist, Dave Peck as the Cop, Georgia VanRy as the Singing Telegram Girl, and Bob Wilcox as the Evangelist.
