Coming Soon!

VHHS was set to perform Clue in front of a live audience, but when the quarantine began the rehearsals stopped. But the show must go on. With special permission from Broadway publishing, VHHS' Backlight Theatre will be presenting a radio play version of Clue. This performance will feature voices and music recorded from the homes of our ensemble. This very special recording will be available for ONE NIGHT ONLY, Friday, May 15th. You will need to purchase a ticket. After you purchase your ticket you will receive an exclusive link to the stream. You will only have 24 hours to listen to the show and all proceeds will benefit The Actors Fund helping theatre professionals who are currently out of work.

Please note: You must watch the show by 4:00 pm on Saturday, May 16th. Run time is approximately 1 hour.

Cost: $3 per household

Deadline: 5:00 pm Friday, May 15
