Southwick Regional School Performing Arts Presents: CLUE!

Big picture
The Southwick Regional School Drama Club's 2022 Fall Play is the popular murder mystery Clue!

"Based on the iconic 1985 Paramount movie which was inspired by the classic Hasbro board game, Clue is a hilarious farce-meets-murder mystery. The tale begins at a remote mansion, where six mysterious guests assemble for an unusual dinner party where murder and blackmail are on the menu. When their host turns up dead, they all become suspects. Led by Wadsworth – the butler, Miss Scarlett, Professor Plum, Mrs. White, Mr. Green, Mrs. Peacock and Colonel Mustard race to find the killer as the body count stacks up. Clue is the comedy whodunit that will leave both cult-fans and newcomers in stitches as they try to figure out…WHO did it, WHERE, and with WHAT!” broadwaylicensing.com

Strategic Plan and Listening Sessions

The District Strategic Plan defines the vision, mission and core values of our district. Each year the strategic objectives and high impact initiatives of the plan are updated to meet the current needs of students. The 22/23 District Strategic plan is available on the district website. The site strategic plans for each school are in the process of being finalized and approved by the school committee.

As we look ahead to preparing the 23/24 District Strategic Plan, Superintendent Willard will be holding a series of listening sessions for families to gather feedback on the plan going forward. Please watch your email for information on those sessions as they are scheduled.
