The Canterbury Theater production of Clue in November was inarguably a hit. Based on the cult classic film and the popular board game, Clue — and its iconic ensemble known as Scarlett, Plum, White, Green, Peacock, and Mustard — kept the audience in laughter and suspense throughout both performances. Now, Clue’s cast and crew have been nominated for several awards for their performances.
The Halo Awards, sponsored by the Seven Angels Theatre in Waterbury, CT, honor high school students’ achievements in all aspects of theatre. Over 60 high schools from across the State of Connecticut participate annually in the Award Ceremony, held each year since 2003. On learning of the award nominations, Clue’s co-director Sarah Armstrong shared, “The cast and crew are so excited to have their hard work pay off with this incredible recognition of their fall production.”
