Nazareth Academy in to stage ‘Clue’

LA GRANGE PARK – Nazareth Academy in La Grange Park will present “Clue,” the high school edition, a farce-meets-murder mystery.

Who killed Mr. Boddy? In what room? With what object? Based on the 1985 Paramount movie that was inspired by the classic Hasbro board game, the tale begins at a remote mansion, as six mysterious guests assemble for an unusual dinner party where murder and blackmail are on the menu.

“After rethinking productions due to COVID protocols last year, we are thrilled to be together for such a fun show,” Director Kim White stated in a news release. “Clue seems to be one of those board games that everyone, including me, loves, and I hope the stage production will be the same. It’s a perfect way to reopen Naz Drama on-stage shows, especially for Halloween weekend.”

Performances will begin at 7 p.m. Oct. 28 to 30, with all seats reserved at $15 each. Performances take place in the Romano Family Theatre at Nazareth Academy, 1209 W. Ogden Ave., La Grange Park.

Beginning Oct. 19, reservations may be made by calling 708-387-8515. All audience members must be masked for the duration of their visit. To learn more about the school, visit www.nazarethacademy.com.
