In early August, the Jag Theater announced their fall play, Clue, and Spring production, The Drowsy Chaperone. Clue will be presented in the CHS auditorium from October 24 through October 26.
Based on the classic Hasboro family board game, Clue follows the murder mystery of the host of a dinner party and the prime suspects. Miss Scarlet, Professor Plum, Mrs. White, Mr. Green, Mrs. Peacock and Colonel Mustard will take the stage to defend themselves from the crime before the true murderer is revealed.
Ariana Gabier, who plays Miss Scarlet, explained one of her favorite parts of the play.
“I love the cast, we’re all friends so it’s really nice to be able to work with people and then also this is kind of our senior year play so that’s very exciting and also kind of sad at the same time,” she said.
Jack Knowles, appearing as Wadsworth in the show, highlighted something that he feels sets Clue apart from other shows the Jag Theater has produced.
“It’s definitely one of the most ambitious plays that we’ve put on at Carrboro before, and I think that in itself is super fun, we have a lot of really fantastic sets, it’s super comedic and I always like that,” he explained.
The cast and crew of the production welcomed VIP guests to view the set. Town of Chapel Hill Mayor Pam Hemminger and CHCCS Superintendent Dr. Pamela Baldwin visited Carrboro on Thursday and Friday of last week.
“I’m just super excited about anything that’s happening in our school system but specifically the arts, and so I think that when students can get engaged in activities inside and outside of the classroom it just makes for a better experience for everybody,” Dr. Baldwin said when asked why she came to visit Carrboro.
The show begins at 7:30pm on Thursday and Saturday and at 6:00pm on Friday. Tickets can be purchased at jagtheatre.seatyourself.biz
