When the San Francisco Playhouse opens its doors March 9 through April 22 for its production of Clue, two Richmond residents will take the stage in the “board game-turned-whodunit.”
Richmond resident and accomplished stage actor, Michael Ray Wisely, plays the iconic Colonel Mustard, a “pompous military man,” who last appeared there in Ideation, per the San Francisco Playhouse. Another local consummate actor, Dorian Lockett, can also be seen in the production as Wadsworth, Boddy Manor’s butler. Lockett last performed at the Playhouse in Water by the Spoonful.
A rep for the San Francisco Playhouse describes Clue as a stage play during which “hilarious farce meets murder mystery” when “six mysterious guests arrive at Boddy Manor for an unusual dinner party and they all become suspects for their host’s murder.” The play is based on the Paramount Pictures Motion Picture based on the Hasbro board game Clue.
Other Clue cast members include Stacy Ross as Mrs. Peacock, Michael Gene Sullivan as Professor Plum, Courtney Walsh as Miss Scarlet, Renee Rogoff as Mrs. White and Greg Ayers as Mr. Green. Margherita Ventura will play the maid, Yvette, and Will Springhorn, Jr., Eiko Yamamoto and Jamiel St. Rose will step in as various ensemble characters. The production is directed by San Francisco Playhouse Co-Founder and Producing Director Susi Damilano.
Tickets to Clue range from $15-$100 and the San Francisco Playhouse is located at 450 Post Street in San Francisco. For tickets or more info, click here or call the Box Office at 415-677-9596.
