College of The Albemarle (COA) is pleased to announce the 2022-2023 season for COA Student Theatre (COAST) Players. The fall production this year is “Clue: On Stage.” “Cinderella” will be the spring production with performance dates in March 2023.
“Clue: On Stage” is based on the Paramount film and the Hasbro board game; the stage show is adapted from the screenplay by Jonathan Lynn with additional material by Hunter Foster, Sandy Rustin and Eric Price. The show is described as a “murder-mystery comedy thriller” that follows six guests at a mysterious dinner party who find themselves implicated as murder suspects when their host becomes deceased. Wadsworth, the butler, leads Mrs. Peacock, Mr. Green, Colonel Mustard, and other guests in an attempt to solve the mystery. Following the film’s footsteps, the project bills itself as a “comedy whodunit.”

“I am thrilled to present this uproarious comedy,” said director Sandra Krueger, drama instructor at the College of The Albemarle. “It’s such a beautiful homage to the original movie while standing on its own merits. Fans of the movie and newcomers alike will have a great time figuring out “who did it.”
