Ashland High School Theatre Department provides students with the opportunity to perform comedies, dramas and musicals, in addition to theatre tech programs. Each year, the department produces 2 or 3 productions, in addition to special programs throughout the season.
The 2020-2021 school year presents a unique challenge since theater classes are unable to meet in person to practice or perform, and of course no public performances are allowed in person.
However, the show must go on! So Ashland High School Theatre opted to create an entirely online dramatic performance, which was performed live Nov 20—22, 2020. Plans for a spring 2021 performance are still under development.
Ashland High School theatre proudly presents CLUE, THE STAY-AT-HOME COMEDY. The AHS company of 40 is directed by Jonathan Luke Stevens. The three performances will be November 20 and 21 @ 7:30 p.m. as well as 1 matinees on Sundays, November 22 p.m. Fun for all CLUE, THE STAY-AT-HOME COMEDY written by Sandy Rustin, based...upon the film and works by Jonathan Lynn, HunterFoster Eric Price and David Abbinanti.

When their host turns up dead, they all become suspects.
