The show is a whodunnit comedy centered around a murderous dinner party.

Drama Club presented “Clue” as its spring production on Friday, May 3 and Saturday, May 4 at the Jersey Shore Arts Center in Ocean Grove. The whodunnit comedy, played by 14 students ranging from all grades, portrayed six likely suspects for murder as clues throughout the show were revealed.

From their serious choice of “Diary Of Anne Frank” in the fall, seniors Summer Ward of Oceanport, director, and Kelly Forrester of Spring Lake Heights, producer, decided to choose a more light-hearted production for the spring.

“Kelly suggested we do Clue, and I’m so happy she did,” Ward said. “I liked that it was a mix of slapstick humor and witty humor, and the murder mystery part sold me.”

Junior Jordan Durkin of Ocean Township attended the Friday night show and was impressed with the production as a whole.

“I haven’t seen many CHS productions, but this one definitely made me want to see more, especially since it was all student run,” Durkin said.

Junior Erin Palmer of Tinton Falls said that even with a few small faults, the show went very smoothly.

“I think this production went very well,” Palmer said. “During the shows we had a few minor issues but everyone was able to keep going and keep it very professional no matter what happened.”

Cast, crew and attendees viewed this production of “Clue” successful. Overseen by adviser Bill Bengle, the production placed its trust into the hands of students.

“I’m so lucky to have the cast I did, and wouldn’t have wanted anyone else,” Ward said. “I’m so proud with how this production turned out.”
