Arcadia High School Masquers proudly presented Clue by Jonathan Lynn and Sandy Rustin on Friday, March 25 and Saturday, March 26, 2022. The hilarious farce-meets-murder mystery production took place in the Arcadia High Auditorium to a delightful crowd.
Clue like the Parker Brothers board game revolved around six guests, a butler, and a maid, who are all involved in a series of murders that takes place at the height of McCarthyism/Red Scare - where the practice of making accusations of subversion or treason without any evidence ran rampant. The guests all meet at Boddy Manor, where they learned that Professor Plum (Peyton Nelson) works in Washington, D.C., where everyone else lives. Colonel Mustard (Jose Monroy) is a client of Miss Scarlet (Maria Braun), who is the ex-employer of Yvette (Alex Lightfoot), the maid, who had an affair with the husband of Mrs. White (Kelly Flores), et cetera. Blackmailer Mr. Boddy (Andy Monroy) gives each guest a weapon and tells him or her to kill butler Wadsworth (Eldon Bunders) to avoid being exposed. Add in Mrs. Peacock's (Sherlyn Veliz) craziness and Ms. Green's (Itzhel Cossio) clumsiness, and we meet a whole group tangled in a web of murder, lies, and hilarity. Oh don't forget about the unsuspecting Motorist (Gery Cebellos-Lopez), the Singing Telegram Girl (Litzabeth Alejo Xhacu) an uninvited cop (Heidi Hernandez), and the Chief of Police (Wyatt George) who became a part of the murder mystery mayham that ensued throughout the show. Oh wait there's more our SWAT team - Joseph Nelson, Osvaldo Juaraz, and Miguel Sepulveda.

Schock headed up the acting ensemble that also doubled as the production work crew from props, to costumes, to publicity, to scenery and everything else in between as well as the run crew consisting of: Sound Daric Haines, Lights Jesus Maldonado Publicity Simon Haines & Mario Lopez, Videography Jacy Boberg, Usher Janet Carreon, and Tickets Jennifer Perez-Cruz & Galilea Barragan Torres.
