EHS Theater Cast acting in the Fall 2023 production of “Clue”.

The curtain rises on Edison High School’s fall production, and this year, the stage is set for mystery, mayhem, and laughter with Clue. As the lights dimmed and the iconic board game characters came to life, the audience was in for a treat of suspense, intrigue, and a healthy dose of humor.

Unlike the theater’s previous musical production, this year brought an authentic play to the stage, which is a style that the team plans on working with again.

The technical aspects of the play, including lighting, sound effects, and set transitions, were executed with precision. The play’s mood shifted from suspenseful and comedic moments, thanks to the well-coordinated technical team. The use of lighting to create shadows during the scenes to enhance the mysterious atmosphere added a layer of nuance to the production.

The production team’s commitment to detail was evident in the visually appealing set design. Though it was on the minimalist side, it helped to highlight other elements of the play, such as the rewind scene at the end and the falling chandelier.

The cast did an outstanding job bringing the beloved characters from Clue to life. Each actor embraced their role with energy and enthusiasm, capturing the essence of the peculiar personalities we know from the game. Special mention goes to the main cast for their standout performances, adding a layer of depth and charisma to their respective characters:

  • Riva Christy ‘24 as Wadsworth
  • Willow Edema ‘26 as Yvette
  • Layna Ortiz-Albino ‘25 as Miss Scarlet
  • Alyssa Osaidacz ‘24 as Mrs. Peacock
  • Olivia Pellizzon ‘26 as Mrs. White
  • Ben Takach ‘24 as Colonel Mustard
  • Vincent Pecorella ‘24 as Professor Plum
  • Amy Boslet ‘24 as Mr. Green
  • Blossom Resto ‘25 as Cook/Singing Telegram Girl
  • Sai Deepak Guddanti ‘24 as Mr. Boddy
  • Justin Santana ‘45 as Motorist/Chief of Police
  • Brandon Chung ‘25 as Unexpected Cop

“It was an incredibly gratifying experience being able to perform this story with incredibly talented people who were as passionate about this show as I was, and hearing such positive reviews from the audience and knowing that other people loved the show we spent so long working on,” said Christy.

Edison High School’s production of Clue was a huge success. The cast and crew’s dedication to capturing the essence of the beloved board game resulted in an entertaining performance. From the engaging storyline to the stellar performances and impressive technical elements, this fall play left the audience with a sense of nostalgia and appreciation for the art of mystery on stage. Congratulations to everyone involved in bringing Clue to life at Edison High School!
