Live Theater on The Ursuline Stage

Intrigue, blackmail, secret passages and general mayhem were on the menu for a mysterious dinner party in the play "Clue" - featured on stage at Ursuline's Auriana Theater on November 19 and 20, 2021.

A talented ensemble cast of Ursuline students brought to life the famous characters in the classic Hasbro board game and 1985 Paramount movie in this "hilarious farce-meets-murder." Audience members received a Clue scorecard and pencil to keep track of who they thought did in, in what room, and with what!

Led by Wadsworth the butler (Leila Martinez), the characters raced to find the killer as the body count stacked up. The ensemble cast was a tour de force with the actors onstage for the majority of the play in order to find out “who done it.”
