Live Theatre returns to West Ranch with student play “Clue”


Desiree Perez and Emily Yoon

Although COVID-19 brought live performances to a halt in 2020, West Ranch Theatre Arts is making a long-awaited return to the stage. On Dec. 1, at 7 p.m. and Dec. 4 at 3 p.m. and 7 p.m., our talented student actors are performing “Clue,” a comedic murder mystery based on the board game and adapted from the classic film. 

On a dark and stormy night, six unique guests, plus a butler and a maid, assemble for a dinner party at the home of Mr. Boddy. When their host turns up dead, it is clear that no one is safe! Soon guests are racing to find the killer and keep the body count from stacking up. Clue is the comedy whodunit following the antics of Mrs. Peacock, Colonel Mustard and the other iconic personalities that will keep you guessing (and laughing) to the very end.

The production will run for 90 minutes without an intermission. To purchase tickets, head to Tickets are $12 for adults and $10 for students at the door. Those purchasing tickets online are able to use promo code WRTIX to save $3.50 per ticket. 

“Clue” ticket sales also double as a fundraiser for multiple charitable causes. Through the Return of Theater Fundraiser Ticket Drive, a portion of ticket fees will be donated to West Ranch High School Band, Orchestra and Choir programs, as well as the Canyon Theatre Guild Youth Workshop Scholarship Fund for Disadvantaged Youth.
