The Bonsall High School theater club will become the Bonsall High School Theater Company for four performances of "Clue" next month.

The performances will be between May 11 and May 14 at the Bonsall Community Center. The first performance will be on Thursday, May 11. May 13 will be a Saturday, and two shows will take place that day. The final performance will be on Sunday, May 14.

"This is like our biggest show that we've had to date," said Bonsall theater director Jen Arellano.

Bonsall High School has one theater class, but that focuses more on film study than on performance. "The productions are all run after school with our theater club," Arellano said.

Clue will be the fourth different production for the theater club. Two productions occurred during the 2021-22 school year, and the club had performances of All Those Things during fall 2022.

"We've really built it from the ground up," Arellano said.

Between 20 and 25 theater club members will be involved in the production of Clue including 14 in the cast. "We have some really talented young people," Arellano said.

Many of those production members are also involved in athletics or other extracurricular activities. "They're also having to juggle their rehearsal schedule," Arellano said.

Clue will be the first theater club performance at the Bonsall Community Center. "It's ambitious," Arellano said. "The kids are really excited about it."
