Clue On Stage

Clue originally created as a board game, that was devised by Anthony E. Pratt from Birmingham, England at a time that it was considered to be a great diversion to the WWII air raid bombings in the U.K. It eventually was licensed in the U.S. by Parker Brothers and became a phenomenon.

I remember playing it endlessly with my brothers as a child and loving the mystery of “who-dunn-it?” Clue was made into a classic comedy thriller in 1985 with a cast of almost perfect comedians, with the likes of the great Tim Curry, Madeline Khan, Lesley Ann Warren, Eileen Brennan and so many more.  I still watch it at least twice a year to observe the brilliance of these wonderful actors.

The decision to open our second season at TAA with Clue was based on the desire to study this kind of comedy with our young actors.  Comedy is a tough genre and these student actors have worked very hard to find the jokes and give you an exceptional evening of entertainment.

I must acknowledge the extraordinary work of my partner in crime (no pun intended), Joey Andenucio, drama teacher, for the stunning costume design and hand built creation of Mrs. Peacock’s dress.  He is a gifted artist and his technical theatre class is responsible for the lights, sound, painting and costume work to make the show so beautiful to look at.

Please sit back, feel the thrill, shrill at the excitement and enjoy the show!

Sincerely,

Roxanne Pignanelli

The Arts Academy is committed to doing theatrical presentations that not only entertain but bring thought provoking issues that can help young audiences deal with topics and pressures that have a limited forum for discussion. The District has sanctioned the presentation of “No One Hears Unless You Scream” to be preformed at all the D70 high schools and possible middle school performances to begin the conversation about suicide prevention and anti-bullying. Sixteen actors and six technicians bring this moving drama to the stage in a 45-minute presentation with a 30-minute post show Q&A opportunity. The District will have all staff psychologists on hand to assist anyone in need of support.

The play is being made available to any and all districts in the state that want to see the play as well as the consideration of a Spanish language presentation.

Please accept this invitation to attend the community presentation of "Scream" the suicide prevention play. This piece runs about 40 minutes with opportunity for discussion before we present to our students at County and eventually several other high schools in the region.  Your presence and input is valuable to us and we look forward to seeing you.

The Arts Academy at Pueblo County High opens its Mainstage Season with the classic melodrama Angel Street. The story came to audiences in 1938 and became a hit movie titled Gaslight in 1940. Set in Victorian England in the late 19th century, it is an exceptional thriller that provides one of the most desirable roles for a female character in that it brings so many twists and turns to the existence of a battered woman, who must prevail in her own wits, to survive.
