Chiawana High School's stage company will present the spoof Clue starting May 10 at the high school, 8125 W. Argent Road in Pasco.

The murder mystery is packed with paranoid characters, all trapped in a swanky mansion together on a dark and stormy night in 1954.

The play is based on the popular Parker Brothers board game of the same name, and it was adapted for the stage by playwright Jonathan Lynn.

Todd Westendorf is directing the Chiawana production.

Clue's characters include Professor Plum played by junior Evan Ederington, Mr. Green by freshman Danny Ross, Yvette by junior Carryn Slage and Mrs. Ho played by sophomore Emilt Toombs.

Also, senior Taylor Storaci plays Wadsworth, senior Michael Simleness is Colonel Mustard, senior Ansley Gerhard is Mrs. White, senior Haley Weis is Miss Scarlett, senior Savannah West is Mrs. Peacock, senior Elyssa Nelson is Mrs. Brody and junior Jason Hopkins plays the investigating cop.

There's also the evangelist played by sophomore Erick Gonzalez, a singing telegram girl played by sophomore Hannah Sullivan and a motorist played by junior Brianna Rodriguez.

Curtain time is 7 p.m. May 10-11 and 17-18 in the high school's black box theater.

Tickets cost $8 for adults and $6 for students and seniors and are available at the door.
