ASU Choir to Offer ‘Clueless’ Spooktacular
The Angelo State University Choir’s annual Spooktacular concert will feature the characters from the classic board game “Clue” at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 16, in the San Angelo City Auditorium, 72 W. College Ave.
This year’s edition of the increasingly popular event is called “Clueless” and is open free to the public. The program will include selections from the Off-Broadway musical “Clue,” which also took its cue from the board game. Besides “Clue,” the choir will perform music from “Cabaret,” “Dracula,” “Jekyll & Hyde,” “Pajama Game” and “Rocky Horror Picture Show.”
Audience members who have played “Clue” will recognize the usual murder suspects of the game, Col. Mustard, Miss Scarlet, Mrs. White, Mr. Green, Mrs. Peacock and Professor Plum, played by the university singers. The choir will be joined by special guests, members of the Lee Middle School Rebel Rage show choir.
The show will focus on the objective of the board game: To solve the murder by finding out who did it, where they did it and what weapon they used.
Spooktacular is in its eighth year and has grown in popularity, as evidenced by its move several years ago from the First Presbyterian Church sanctuary to the 1,500-seat City Auditorium across the street. The choir has played to standing-room-only crowds the past few years.
The family-friendly event also includes a costume contest for children ages 12 and younger. The program is for all ages, though, so adults can put on their favorite Halloween costumes and join the merriment.
Dr. Pamela Lee, professor of music and director of choral activities, conducts the ASU Choir.
